Brett Louis Patterson, 27, of Escalon, passed away April 17, 2018. Born on July 27, 1990, Brett’s creativity and passion compelled him toward music, art, and activism. Brett was one of a kind. He lived his life with courage, humor, and style. With Brett, you never ran out of things to talk and laugh about. He always knew what to wear; always dared to say the things no one else would. Brett had a way of turning strangers into friends and his engaging spirit and kind soul will be deeply missed by all who crossed his path.
Brett is survived by his mother, Christenia Patterson, father, William Earl Patterson, and sister, Heather Cook. Brett was a wonderful, loving uncle to Jaxon and Zoey. He had many friends and family members who loved him dearly, including aunts, uncles, and cousins. A service will be held at the Escalon Covenant Church in Escalon on Friday, April 27 at 11 a.m.
