Arthur Rush Patton Jr.

Mar 23, 1919 - Feb 19, 2014


Entered into rest on February 19, 2014 in Sacramento, CA.  Art was born on March 23, 1919 in San Angelo, TX.  He was married to Olive I. Patton for 64 years, prior to her passing June 5, 2010.  They are survived by their sons, Fred, Robert, Keith and Mark, daughter in laws, grandchildren and great grandchildren.   Art was a gentle man who worked 30 years at McClellan Air Force Base.  Upon retiring,  he enjoyed raising german shepard dogs; cockatiels and love birds; and working in his garden which he tended with patience and care.   There will be no services, however the family will have a private celebration of his life.   Art’s gentle spirit and kindness will be missed greatly by his family.
