June 3, 1940 – July 25, 2011 Ross was the son of Vernon Lee Patterson and Jospehine Pearl Brown. “Pat” as everyone knew him was a simple man with a big heart. He loved reading western books and taking care of his horse named “Holly”. Pat joined the U.S. Air Force in 1968 and was discharged in 1966, and was proud to have served his country. The family would like to say thank you to everyone at Texas Health Presbyterian for the excellent care and also Dr. Tammy Roque and Dr. Jill Herffnan of Texas Cancer Oncology. Special thanks to the Tormos family Felix, Eryn and the kids, you were truly sent by God and your love and care will never be forgotten. I don’t know if we can ever thank you enough for the giving your love and friendship. The family is truly grateful to you all.
