Born on May 24, 1953 in New London, he was the son of the late Andrew “Jack” and Dollie (Harvey) Patton.
Jack worked as a carpenter but was truly a jack of all trades who enjoyed solving problems and could fix just about anything. He enjoyed tending to his garden and flowers and fishing. Jack was a talented musician, playing guitar in numerous bands. He will be remembered for the time spent with friends and family sitting around picking and grinning.
Survivors, include his children, Amie (Benjamin) Mutti, of Lexington, Jennifer (Christopher) Jansen, of Olmsted Township, Hollie Ann Patton McGuire, of Lorain, and Jacob (Lana) Williams Patton, of Stanwood, Wash.; 13 grandchildren; siblings, Bobby Jean (Ruby) Patton, of New London, Goldie Goble, of Clyde, J.B. (Constance) Patton, of Akron, and Lawrence “Dan” (Mary) Patton, of New London. Jack was preceded in death by his brother Gary, an infant sister, and brother-in-law Clifford Goble.
Friends and family will be received on Thursday, Oct. 10, from noon until the time of services beginning at 2 p.m. at Eastman Funeral Home, 200 W. Main St., New London. Burial will follow at Ashland County Memorial Park. Expressions of sympathy may be shared at eastmanfuneralhome.com.
