"For I'm sure a huge variety of reasons, when something like this comes down, people just kind of lick their wounds and hunker in and you just don't hear or see much of them," he added.
But he was determined to not go down that way.
"Looking back, I've had a very interesting life," Patt continued. "I'm choosing to regard this as part and parcel of what is a full life, kind of like a field trip. My question is, 'What can I learn from this?'"
Patt is survived by his wife Pauline, two brothers and his father. Singer said there are no immediate plans for a memorial service, but she had no doubt the HBS would find an appropriate way to remember Dr. Rick.
