July 19, 1921 – March 18, 2011

Eric Leslie (BUD) Patterson passed away peacefully on March 18, 2011.

Although saddened by our loss we rejoice knowing that he has now been reunited with his beloved wife, Florence, his parents Mary & Harold and his other family members and friends who greeted him at heaven’s doors.

Dad had a passion for life – his family and friends meant everything to him.  He was loving, kind and always giving.  He had a great 90 years of keeping busy and enjoying life.  Loving memories will be held by his children Lynn and Cal (Anne, Jesyka) He will be missed dearly by his brother Allan (Lorraine). His love, guidance & support will be treasured by his grandsons Ryon (Rob) & Connor. His ‘fatherly’ ways will be remembered by his nephews and nieces and all our friends who called him ‘Dad’. 

Having served proudly in the Navy (WWII) Bud lived his last 2 yrs. at Col. Belcher Vet’s Residence – Strathcona who the family would like to thank for all their wonderful care – Dad was very happy living there.

                 He lived his life well…he loved and laughed always!
