Condolence & Memory Journal

I am so very sorry to hear about Pat - I was having lunch with a local business affiliation and found out the news today (1-17-19).

To the family - I am so sorry to hear about Pat and hope God has granted peace during that time and beyond.

I started with Kemark back in mid 90's and worked for Pat and Michelle for a few years - I always looked up to Pat and he was a great friend, mentor and leader of my early career life.

I will always have fond memories of Pat.

Sending so much love to the Kemp and Markoff family. We'll never forget Pat's unique brand of kindness and humor and care for friends and family!

As a teenager, I recall pulling out of the Markoff driveway one time and my car colliding with another. When he heard the crash, Pat came running at a full sprint down the driveway to help, as this other driver was letting me have it for pulling out in front of him. Pat said something like, "Forget about this guy yelling at you. Are you okay?" I was so glad to have Pat with me in that moment.

Michelle, Natalie, Katrina, Jon -- I'm thinking of you.

It is with deep sorrow to have learned of the loss of Pat Kemp who will always be known to me affectionately as "Kemper". He was a good man and I am a better person for having the privilege of knowing him. Rest in peace.

My sincerest condolences to Michelle, his sons and entire family. You are all in our Prayers.
