Dougald found his new home in Reidsville 35 years ago where he discovered a new life of sobriety. He lived to help men and women break the chains of addiction. Dougald was recognized by AA for his diligence and commitment to helping others. His servant spirit was evident in every aspect of his life. Dougald always enjoyed sharing his love for travel with Wallace Anne including 49 states, 9 trips to Canada and 3 trips to Alaska. They would have gone to Hawaii but there wasn’t a bridge. Along with his parents, he was also preceded in death by his wife Wallace Anne Waynick Patterson; siblings Roderick “Ock” Patterson, Duncan Patterson, Foster Patterson, Archie Patterson, L.C. Patterson, Parker Patterson, J.D. Patterson, Infant brother, and Lena Hughes.
