Patrick "Hog" Dreibrodt, 67, of Comfort died May 4th, just weeks after receiving a stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis. He was born in San Antonio on the day after Groundhog Day, which then, of course, led to the nickname "Hog", thanks to his older brother Tommy. He is reunited in Heaven with his son, Michael, and parents, Julius Otto Dreibrodt and Clara Lillian Foryszewski. He is survived by his loving daughter, Megan Gandy, her husband Steven, and grandchildren Shyan and Wyatt; his brother Tommy Dreibrodt and his son Dutch, and daughter Heidi Zaiontz; sister Julie Grant and her husband Rusty, and their sons, Ronnie and Tracy. Further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends. Hog worked for several years along with Tommy and Dutch at their family owned roofing and gutter business in Kerrville. A very important part of his life was entering Chili Cookoff Events all over Texas, where he accumulated several trophies, and lots more friends and fun times. His favorite was the famous Terlingua Championship Cookoff. His award-winning chili was also notorious by being both delicious and dangerous, as it could at times be quite spicy. He was also a plantsman who enjoyed cultivating flowering plants and tending to his vegetable garden, which will be missed by friends and family who he shared his bounty with. He also enjoyed spending time with friends at the Cocky Rooster in Comfort, his favorite watering hole. Hog will be missed greatly by all who loved him dearly. He is remembered as a funny, kind and thoughtful man, who walked his own path and lived his life on his own terms, until the very end. Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Friday, May 7th at Grimes Funeral Chapels of Kerrville.
