Pat DiCicco, Eagle Power Sales Representative, Passes Away

(Montgomeryville, PA) It is with tremendous sadness that Eagle Power & Equipment must share the sudden passing of a beloved member of their company, Pat DiCicco. Gifted with a tremendous heart and appreciation for others, there is hardly anyone in the industry working in the Delaware Valley whom he has not touched in his over 50-year career.

Born in the Philadelphia area in 1947, Pat started as an assistant parts manager at State Equipment Corp. in 1967. Seeking to move into capital equipment sales he joined CASE Power Equipment in 1971 as a trencher salesman. His attention to the needs of customers allowed him to take responsibility over a full CASE line territory in 1973. He was one of the many who formed the independent Eagle Power and Equipment in 1996 after the company’s purchase by Jerry McDonald. Throughout it all he was the personal connection customers had with the brand and organization. Always greeting folks with a smile, a joke, and an unwavering commitment to doing right by them.

To his coworkers Pat had always been a constant warm presence. Whenever he came into the office, everything changed a bit and became a little brighter and the mood a little lighter. He always seemed to be the main attraction at all our Sales Meetings, picnics, and Christmas parties.

“Pat was an extraordinary man, an amazing salesman, a great friend, and a mentor” remembered Matt McDonald, President of Eagle Power & Equipment. “Like all of us, I have many great Pat stories. But the thing I will always remember about Pat is how he always began and ended our conversations. He always started with ‘You good? Everything OK?’ and ended with ‘I love you Bud’. It didn’t matter what the conversation was about or if it was pleasant or an argument, they always began and ended the same way. The beauty of Pat was that he made you feel special, and that was your unique greeting and salutation.

Pat was the beloved husband of Kathleen for 57 years, with whom he spent his life since they were childhood sweethearts. Together they had four children, and welcomed many grand children and great grandchildren into their family. He was a member of the Barren Hill Volunteer Fire Company for 30 years servicing such roles as a driver, Safety Officer and board trustee. One of his proudest responsibilities was being Santa during the company’s annual Christmas runs.

Words cannot fully express what he meant to all who knew him. “Pat, all is good, and everything will be OK. We love you too Bud.”
