Our witty and facetious husband, father, grandfather (‘pappi’), uncle, son, brother and friend, Jay Christopher Patterson, passed away peacefully on March 30, 2018 at MD Anderson Hospital in Houston, TX at the age of 68. He touched all of our hearts in many meaningful ways and will be missed and remembered forever.

Jay was born on October 21, 1949 in Beaumont, TX and was the son of Jack and Sue Patterson. As the oldest of two sibling’s, Kelly Thaden and York Patterson, Jay has always been the one taking care of others and putting others first. He graduated from Lamar University in Beaumont, TX in 1972 with a Bachelor Political Science and by 1986 open his own business Great Plains Pool & Spa Products.

In 1975, Jay married the love of his life, Barbara, and together they have shared 42 years of marriage with each other. They have two wonderful and charming boys Travis and Blake. Jay found joy in everything his boys were a part of from volunteering and coaching Little League Baseball; he also found joy in training Labrador retrievers for field trials. He enjoyed spending time at his ranch in Schulenburg, TX raising beef master cattle and donating to the Schulenburg FFA. If that wasn’t enough he enjoyed spending his time playing golf, hunting and fishing.

He is survived by mother, Sue Patterson; spouse, Barbara Patterson; children, Blake with spouse Laura, Travis with spouse Alexis; grandchildren, Kaden and Ryder; brother, York with spouse Vicki and nephew Hunter; sister Kelly with spouse Bob and nephew Jesse. He is preceded in death by his father, Jack Patterson.

I do not recall the year I met Jay but is when he came to work for Poolquip McNeme. During those years Jay was much more than a employee . He was a great person an a dear friend. He was member of my three Musketeers The three are Jay, Glen and Wayne Glen is the only one left which reminds me of how old I am and how fortunate I am to have known such special people. Jay thanks for the memories.

My friend. It’s an honor and privilege to refer to Jay as my friend. Always sarcastic with a tough guy exterior. But those of us who really got to know him knew there wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do for you. I’ll miss our talks, HUCK. Your friend, Ralph

Jay was my friend for many years because of his honesty and his loyalty. But his best quality for me was his wonderful humor - dry and witty. I always enjoyed Jay's company whether discussing our business relationship or lying about our golf scores. Jay has passed through my life and I am a better person because of Jay. I will miss him dearly.

Jay, I will forever be indebted to you for getting my husband, Bob Hatter out of the field and into an office. The support of you and your company family during his illness was immeasurable. I always think of you and PSP fondly and with ultimate gratitude.
