AAPIA Mourns the passing of Patrick M. Catania


It is with very sad news that we report the passing of a wonderful man in Mr. Pattrick M. Catania. I never met the man but I spoke with him the past few months as Pat worked with much energy and vigor to oppose the recent legislative activities in Florida. Patrick represented his clients and his profession with integrity and class! Patrick M. Cantania will be greatly missed by his family, co-workers and friends. Patrick M. Catania known to many as "PAT" passed away on May 24, 2010 while courageously fighting a short but arduous battle with cancer while under treatment in Germany. Pat leaves his family and colleagues were he established East Coast Public Adjusters a legacy that is a testimony to his many accomplishments. Pat is survived by Susie Catania, a law student at the University of Miami; Danny Catania, artist and public insurance adjuster for the family company; Frankie Catania, preschooler. Pat, an entrepreneur, was the President of East Coast Public Adjusters and east Coast Appraisers for over twenty-five years where he was a passionate fighter and true advocate for the policyholder's rights. Pat was instrumental in affecting the interpretation of the insurance law in the state of Florida on behalf of the insurerd.
