Sad news to report.

Patty Byrnes has passed away.

HNS building

Played for John Jay. Solid ball player. Could rebound well and defend. Played with Black Jack Ryan at Jay.

“I get the offensive rebounds and pass it out to Jackie,” Patty once told me.

Growing up back in the day Patty and his family lived on 8th avenue between Prospect and Windsor.

Condolences to the Byrnes family.
