Together they made their home on Dekker Rd. in Outlook, WA where they farmed for more than 30 years. They retired in 1980 and moved into Sunnyside, WA. Pat and Oscar were inseparable. They were farmers and very proud of how they earned their living. They never complained and were always thankful for their blessings. Pat farmed along side Oscar everyday. When the crops were in, they found time to hunt, fish and camp with their two children and other family members.
