He was preceded in death by his grandson Patrick Quentin Kiley III; step-son Jason Ferguson; sisters Ruth Estes of Dodge City, KS, and June Aley of Casper, WY; and Barbara Gum Kiley, the mother of his three children. Pat was born on May 12, 1932 in Kismet, Kansas to Edward and Pauline Kiley. He graduated from Kismet high school in 1950 and then from Dodge City Junior College. He served in the United States Air Force for four years and was honorably discharged. Pat worked for Martin Marietta as a computer programmer and taught computer science at Metropolitan State College. Because of his height (Pat was 6'4"), and shortly after he began teaching at Metro, he was asked by 4 students to start the school's basketball program and to serve as its first head coach. Pat accepted the offer without hesitation and was proud to have had the opportunity to pick the team's name and mascot: The Roadrunners. Pat named the team the "Roadrunners" because at the time, Metropolitan College Campus consisted of two buildings blocks apart in downtown Denver and students would have to "run the road" to get from class to class. After teaching, Pat went to work for the United States Mint in Denver Colorado and often had the opportunity to travel to Washington D.C. While working in Washington, Pat took full advantage of being on the East Coast and would often take the train to New York City on the weekends. During this time, Pat was passionate about real estate and acquired multiple single family homes and was an active landlord for his properties until last year. In 1981 Pat met Kris at a Parents without Partners function and began their 34 year adventure. Pat and Kris love to travel and set out on many road trips throughout the continental United States. Their travels took them to Mexico, Hawaii, Alaska, and Europe. He loved the Denver Broncos and in addition to melding their blended families, Pat and Kris combined their season tickets and enjoyed going to games with their friends, children and grandchildren. After the kids were all out of the house, Pat and Kris bought Harley Davidson motorcycles and rode all through the Rocky Mountain West. Pat would often comment that he was a lucky man to be able to travel but an even luckier man to be able to return to their home in Franktown, Colorado and to be able to look out any window on the west side of the house and see Pike's Peak and almost the entire front range.
