The Oregonian - May 26, 2013

Patrick, Jimmy Lee 79 Jan. 17, 1934 May 15, 2013 Jim Patrick of Milwaukie passed away at 79, surrounded by those he loved, laughed with and lived for. Born in Saranac, Mich., he described himself as being "just a farmboy". At 17, he joined the Marine Corps and in 20 years of proud service achieved the rank of Captain and earned a bronze star and two purple hearts. While stationed in Bermuda, he met and married Carol, who would be by his side to the end. Together they had two daughters, Maureen and Brenda. Following his retirement the family moved to Oregon where he earned his J.D. from Lewis & Clark Law School. Traveling the world was a constant joy, from camping in the northwest to exploring numerous countries, continents and islands. He loved to scuba dive, was always reading, walked miles with his dogs and found time to enjoy every family adventure, milestone and celebration. He is survived by wife, Carol; daughters, Maureen and Brenda; grandchildren, Kate and Donald; sister, Sylvia; and his dog, Reina, among other family and friends. He will forever be a beloved husband, father, brother and grandfather. A memorial service will be held Monday, June 3, 2013, at 11 a.m. at Lincoln Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made to the Oregon Food Bank.
