North Delta Senior
Grad Class of 1983
Todd Patrick -- 2005
Reading my '83 NDSS write-up it became sadly apparent that the things we say in our youth sometimes do stay with us forever. I can't believe I said "Bite my shorts!" before Bart Simpson was even born and I don't think anyone ever called me that ridiculous nickname.
I moved to Maple Ridge immediately following graduation from university in '89 and still live in the same house. I am into my 16th year teaching highschool in the District. I am happy to say that I still like going to work every day.
I have been playing and coaching mens soccer since the mid '90s and can't get enough of the sport. In fact my updated picture follows a game last summer. I never really understood the importance of sport or clubs until I started playing again as an adult. It adds a flavour to life you just can't find anywhere else.
I travel often to Europe, sometimes with students, with my favourite trips being to Ireland, Italy, Spain and Greece. I also spend a significant amount of time in the California wine country with family. I would recommend New York and New Orleans to anyone looking for a vacation a little closer to home.
I have no children and am currently basking in the single life. I continue to enjoy life's twists and turns no matter what direction they take and find that things - soccer wounds excluded - get better with time. Cheers to all the Grads of '83!
