Ross G. Patterson
Ross G. Patterson, 74, of Lake Placid, Florida, recently passed away peacefully with family by his side in the loving home of Kathie Patterson and Henry Brunelle.
He was born on July 24, 1944, to George and Ethel Patterson in Englewood, New Jersey.
Ross wore many hats over the years from mechanic to dairy farmer and finally, general contractor. His role as contractor took him up and down the East Coast, from Maine to Key West. Our family has fond memories of traveling and working with him on many of his projects over the years up and down the coast.
He was able to take one final road trip with his daughters from Lake Placid, Florida, to Oneonta.
Ross is survived by his two daughters, Dawn Patterson and husband, Gary McCulley of Davenport and Karen Patterson and husband, Paul Merwin of Davenport; former wife, Kathie Patterson and husband, Henry Brunelle of Oneonta; and longtime companion, Helen Girard Rymal of Lake Placid, Florida.
He was predeceased by his parents, George and Ethel Patterson and infant son, Ross.
Per Ross’ final wishes he will be cremated and there be a private family gathering, where he will be put to rest with his parents in the East Meredith Cemetery.
Final arrangements are provided by the Bookhout Funeral Home.
