Patrick E. Cornelius, age 73 of Guilderland passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 26, 2020. Patrick was the owner and operator of Uptown Shoe Repair in Westmere for over 50 years. He was an avid outdoorsman; especially fishing in the ocean, digging for clams, hunting, and boating, and he loved tending to his vegetable garden at home. Many friends and customers have learned a lot from spending time with him; especially that it is the little things in life that matter the most. He took everything in life in stride.
