Charles Patrick “Pat” Elmore passed away October 9, 2021 at the age of 92. Pat was born in 1929 in St. Louis, MO. He graduated in 1951 from Iowa State College with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. After graduation, he served in the US Navy 1951-1954 aboard the USS Hollister (DD788) and USS Cockrell (DE366).
Following his service, Pat had a long career in the paper industry. Upon retirement in 1994, Pat returned to Jacksonville, FL, where he enjoyed model trains, woodworking, friends, family, and church. For the last three years, Pat has been cared for by the wonderful staff at Kirkwood by the River in Birmingham, AL.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Fred & Susie Elmore; brother Bill Elmore; wife of 32 years, Mavis Ann Mattson Elmore; and son Daniel William Elmore. Pat is survived by his daughter Brenda (Ray) Allen, son Steven (Tina) Elmore and grandson Samuel (Jesseca) Elmore.
The family will have a private memorial at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Kirkwood by the River Memory Unit Activities.
