Patrick was born at Mayilili, east of Kunawarritji (Well 33). When he was young, he walked the desert east of the Canning Stock Route with his older brother, Brandy. These journeys regularly crossed the stock route and, in 1958, Patrick followed the chain of wells north out of the desert. After living many years in Balgo, returned to live near his Country at Kiwirrkurra.
