Our beloved technician and great friend Paul Patterson passed away on January 7th, 2016. Paul was a devoted father and husband, a lifelong automotive technician, avid boater, and all around amazing person. It was unusual to see Paul without his wonderful smile and that is how he will be remembered; as the lover of life and the kind-hearted man he was. Rest peacefully brother Paul.
