Patrick Antle was a self-motivated entrepreneur that operated several small businesses throughout his life. He started out selling door-to-door which lead into operating several businesses throughout his life such as groceries, wholesale, taxi, small engine repair, logging, etc. His career as an entrepreneur cannot be matched by anyone. Besides being a hard working businessman he was also an expert woodsman. He could bring you deep into the thickest forest with no trails or marking and always knew his way back from a different direction just by using the landscape and sun positioning as a guide to get back. Bologna and beans with a cup of tea over an open fire was a meal he mastered. Patrick was honest, kind and caring. He had many friends and was loved by everyone who knew him. He will certainly be missed and always remembered.
Visitation will be on Friday afternoon for family and friends at Hoskins Funeral Home, Bishop’s Falls following COVID restrictions.
