Thomas Peyton “Pate” McGahee, Jr. Pate, beloved son of Peyton and Lynda McGahee went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on December 3, 2018. He taught us how to love unconditionally. One of his greatest passions was being a greeter at Kiokee Baptist Church for 20 plus years. He greeted everyone with a big smile, hug or handshake. A special needs Sunday school class is named in his honor. Pate was a 1988 graduate of Harlem High School and was loved by his peers. He learned to cane chairs at the Augusta Training Shop. He was an avid fan of the Georgia Bulldogs fan and Harlem’s, Lady Dogs softball team. He was preceded in death by grandparents, Tommy McGahee, WB and Lena Mae Bates and by his uncle, Benny Bates.

Pate will forever be remembered fondly by so many whom he greeted at the door each Sunday morning as we headed to Sunday School. He would shake my hand each time and smile so genuinely while welcoming me. He always made me feel so blessed to be there as I witnessed his sincere joy. Your family is in my prayers during this difficult time of loss of your precious loved one.
