Patrick James Moore

Patrick was born and raised in Lombard, Ill. After receiving his M.D. from the Stritch Medical School in Maywood, Illinois, Patrick first practiced family medicine in Oregon and then emergency medicine in California and Oregon.
Patrick is survived by his son; mother; sister; three brothers; and close long-time friends.
