Thomas Junior Patterson, 77 of Summerfield passed away at his home.
There are no formal services planned at this time.
Thomas was born in Rockingham County to the late William Patterson and Aileen Patterson. He was a dedicated husband and father. Thomas worked for Sherwin-Williams for 44 years in Greensboro from where he retired. He enjoyed fishing and bowling when he was able. Thomas was dedicated to his family and has been the primary caretaker for his wife the last 7 years. He demonstrated in his life love, forgiveness, a hard work ethic, and resiliency. As Thomas aged, he wasn’t able to go fishing or bowling as much as he wanted, but he found his new hobby of watching FOXNEWS where he would become rooted to his recliner.
He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Teresa Patterson; children, Matt Patterson (Casey); Jeremiah Patterson; grandchildren, Braxton and Riggins Patterson as well as a loving group of extended family and friends.
