Not many people know this, but he was my first ever paying client for photography. Just like every other rider in DFW, we would make our way to the latest location for Pat’s bike nights. In 2008 it was at Hot Rods & Hogs. I snagged my camera and was excited to see some action.
After a full afternoon of shooting, Pat came up to me and offered to feed me and get me some drinks. He then asked if he could get the shots from that day. I said I can get them burned to a CD and over to him ASAP. He then haded me a chunk of cash and thanked me.
This pretty much became the same routine at every event I covered that he attended.
But what does this all mean? After years of continuing my path with photo and video, it has been made even clearer. He was a showman and knew the value us shooter brought to him. But most importantly, he respected us.
Pat is not the kind of guy you bring to church with you, unless you wanted to be struck by lightning. But he was always real and never changed. He loved the spotlight, but always wanted to bring his friends and strangers along for the ride.
The bottom line is I can say this without any hesitation, he is one of the few I know, that lived life to the fullest. – Piotr wrote on Facebook.
We lost an OG in the stuntriding world.
A true pioneer.
If you ever met Patrick Stephens, then you know he lived life to the fullest! Uncle Hucklebuck was as wild as they come.
From stunts, porn, comedy, Patrick was a man of many talents.
Rest easy old friend, although I think the party will keep going up there 🤙🏼 – Rodney wrote on Facebook

*R-I-P* Patrick Stephens What a true icon for the stunt riding community! We first met in 2004 at Starboyz StuntFest – Back when I say comps were actually fun. Everyone just had fun and didn’t take it so serious, we congratulated each other vs nit picking runs and etc… This guy never changed, pushed the envelope, a true entertainer, and a humble dude all in one while on one. His passion for riding, enjoying life, and teaching/coaching others is something that will truly be missed and a tragedy for society.
I am honored to say that I have known this man and shared some of my fondest memories. I have always envied his tenacity to keep pushing forward and just be whom you feel you were meant to be.
Thanks for being an inspiration and showing us what it’s like to truly live your life.
