Howard Huston “Pat” Patterson, Jr., 73, of DeWitt passed away February 13, 2020. He was born August 17, 1946 in Stuttgart to Howard and Marie Jones Patterson. Pat was a barber for 50 years. He truly enjoyed and loved the people that came in his barber shop. He cut the hair of generations of families and was always willing to make a house call for customers that weren’t able to get out any more and come to the shop. There were always extra chairs available for people to come in and talk awhile because he did love to talk! Pat also enjoyed to hunt and loved fishing when he was able. Of everything that he loved, his grandchildren were at the top of the list. He was a Navy veteran and a member of Hebron Missionary Baptist Church. Pat was preceded in death by his parents and his sister Sherry Criswell. He was also preceded in death by his loving wife of 45 years, Glenda Patterson. Pat missed her so much these last few years and he is happy to be with her again. He is survived by his children Lisa Ward (Greg) and Scott Patterson (Melissa) both of DeWitt; eight grandchildren Korry Jones (Tyler), Emily Patterson, Hunter Hill, Eli Patterson, Savannah Patterson, Noah Ward (Emily), Adam Hill, and Kara Ward; one great granddaughter Evy Claire Jones; two brothers Dan Patterson (Ruth) of DeWitt and Mike Paterson (Linda) of Scott; one brother-in-law Robert Criswell of DeWitt; and a host of nieces, nephews, and other family and friends.
