On the evening of Sunday, April 26th, Canada's travel industry lost a family member as Patrick Luciani, founder and chairman of TravelOnly, unexpectedly passed away. 

Patrick was a great leader, businessperson, colleague, husband, father, grandfather, family man and friend. 

He was loved and respected by many in Canada's travel industry, as was exemplified by the outpouring of support and condolences for the Luciani family here on PAX, and on social media, on that sad day and in the days that followed.

As a documentarian of TravelOnly's many conferences and events in recent years, PAX had the opportunity to interview Patrick several times, often with our cameras rolling.

Straight from the PAX Global Media archives, these are some of Patrick's finest moments that we captured -- including never-before-seen footage of the Luciani family's PAX magazine May cover shoot, which took place last February at Preto Loft studios in Toronto with acclaimed photographer and director Matt Manhire. 

If there was time for Patrick's wisdom on the value of travel, memorable experiences and strong partnerships, it's now.
