In earlier years he followed NASCAR and loved to go the Daytona races. He loved his Chick Fil A, Old South BBQ and Krystal. Born in Atlanta, GA, he was the youngest child of the late Maggie Gaines Patterson and the late Len Patterson.
He is survived by daughters, Debbie Watson (Chris) of Dallas, GA, and Terry Borberg, as well as nephews David Lewis Patterson (Kay) of Seneca, SC, and Douglas Len Patterson (Marketia) of Athens, GA, four grandchildren, four great nephews, and their children. In addition to his parents, “Tubby” was preceded in death by his siblings, Louise Patterson Bruce, Byron Camp Patterson, and Marjean Patterson.
