Patrick was born in Port Arthur, Texas, on October 27, 1952. He was the son of Raymond and Gertrude Reeves.

Pat was a 1971 graduate of Port Neches-Groves High School where he was the Indian Spirit alternate during 1970-1971. Pat spent his younger adult years working at Levingston Funeral Home. In 1977 he joined UPS delivering packages to many Groves residents. He quickly became the favorite on his UPS route where he spent most of his time for 32 years. Pat was a lover of most music and a true rock music fan. In the evenings, you could find him sitting on his back porch with his dog, Bullet, jamming to his favorite tunes. Pat spent some of his retirement days helping his good friend, Stan Sansom, deliver Meals on Wheels. He delighted in giving to others. He was a giver, not a taker. He loved to make people smile with his famous chocolate pies and one-of-a-kind chocolate chip cookies. During any conversation with Pat, he was sure to make you laugh. Pat was a family man. His grandchildren were his greatest possessions. He was one proud PaPa! A true ray of sunshine for anyone that met him. Goes without saying, some of Pat’s last words were, “I want everyone to think about Jesus and just be happy!”

Pat is preceded in death by his parents, his nephew Kael Reeves and his grandson Elijah James Taylor.

Pat is survived by his children: Son Michael Reeves and his wife LaRae of Port Neches and daughter Kara Taylor and husband John (JT) of Nederland; His grandchildren: Macie Reeves, Kaiden Reeves, Aniston Reeves, Kinley Buchanan, Isaiah Taylor, and Abigail Taylor; His siblings: Michael Reeves and wife Cyndy of Kirbyville, Kenneth Reeves and wife Debbie of Port Neches, Harold Reeves and wife Fuxia Wang of San Antonio, Cindy del Valle of San Antonio; His Uncle Richard Griffiths, who Pat was very close to; His nieces and nephews: Joshua Reeves, Misti Reeves, Brian Reeves, Brandon Reeves, Brett Reeves, Natasha Castillo, Bridget Sticker and Paige Birdwell.
