Riley William Patrick
Birth: Sep. 29, 1901
Mendocino County
California, USA
Death: Apr. 17, 1995
Calistoga
Napa County
California, USA

His father, James, pioneered Anderson Valley in California with Anderson, and built Jim Town, which today consists of the house, church and general store, and is where Patrick grew as a child. He lived with, and worked a vineyard for his Aunt who lived near by Jim Town. He was married for a short while then divorced in his younger years. He became a Staff Sargent Marine during WWII in his 40's! Quite an accomplishment. He earned his living driving for Shell Oil Company, gardened and kept his own horses well into his 80's. Patrick was a kind hearted soul who was warm and loving to his second wife's family. They married in their later years after enjoying years of social dancing together which was their common love. He was strong and very healthy all of his life, always yearning for world travel he attended horse shows when ever he had the opportunity, as well as Sunday drives through the Napa and Lake countryside. He grew huge banana squash that he supplied to his friends, family and church. He is still missed! (bio by: James and Sharon Cissell)
