In Memory of Carl Patterson ’51

See the message below from Joseph Mazza ’51:

Carl M. “Sarge” Patterson, Jr.  in later years known as “Bud,” died December 31, 2019 in Evanston, IL, age 91. He was my roommate in the class of 1951, a member of Omega Fraternity and  Student Body President his last year at Ripon.  A sergeant when he graduated from Howe Military Academy, it earned him the nickname “Sarge” at college, where he majored in Economics. The military shaped his character, which was one of straight-arrow integrity, loyalty, discipline and service. He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War as a 2nd Lt.  Married to the late Marilyn Kordick, he is survived by three sons.
