I have missed my life in Texas and I still miss him. He was such an interesting man. He wasn’t perfect but, he was himself and he charmed. Thank you for sharing your life with me, Sir.

RIP W. H. Patton (July 16, 1939 – July 21, 2012)

Shot of him at about ten years old.
He wanted to drive the 1938 Ford in the background.
I think his cousin took this.
Patton Image Three
He loved this 1934 Oldsmobile.
Patton Image Four
His journalism years.
Patton Image Five
He always had a guitar or two on stands ready to play.

He disliked this photo.
1970s perms were not his friend.
Discussing business.

Love of his life.

    I loved both those car shots! That pic of him sat in the chair reminded me of Gary Cooper. He certainly had a life well lived

    A lovely tribune! I remember those seventies perms – ugh.

      Thank you.

      I also remember the half-perms that showed up in the early 80s. It was, basically, a mullet haircut with only the back permed. OY.

    Wonderful, loved the photos. I dream of having one of those perms these days.

      Heh. I see your point. A bad hair day is better than a no hair day, any day. 😉
