PJ was a devoted son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend to those that knew him. If you were a friend to PJ, you were his family, and he loved his family unconditionally, with the loyalty that only you could dream of. Those who knew PJ can attest that he loved a good casual outfit, joggers, a t-shirt, a pair of dope sneakers or slides, and a hat. PJ's personality would warm a room when he walked in. It was hard not to like or love this irreplaceable guy.
