Glenn Owen Patterson January 16, 1992 - September 16, 2016

Glenn joined our world January 16, 1992. Twenty-four years later on September 16, 2016 he rode to the next world on a motorcycle in Calaveras County. He was doing what he loved that day.
Glenn attended Los Paseos Elementary, Encinal and Martin Murphy Middle Schools graduating Sobrato High School in 2010. On target for graduation in the Spring of 2017, he was currently in his senior year  attending UC Davis pursing a double major in Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering.
Quiet, but ever observant, he was a good friend to many. His warm, sometimes smirky smile, pithy comments and sense of humor gave joy to everyone. Often anticipating when help was needed he was kind, gentle and patient with his Grandpa Ted and it showed through as well when he interacted with young kids who were attracted to him by his bearish size, hearty laugh and big heart.
He was involved over his lifetime in a variety of active challenges which included swimming, baseball, ice hockey, snow skiing, scuba diving, snow boarding, golf, football, boating, wake surfing, motorcycles, and all manner of outdoor fun that usually included his friends and family. He was gifted in music, especially playing the baritone saxophone. He also enjoyed video gaming with his brother and friends. He was the Commissioner of his fantasy football league which was good natured but highly competitive amongst his friends. At times he could be found streaming up to eight games at once.
Glenn is survived by his parents Bradley and Katrina Patterson, brother John, and grandmother Mary Reynolds, as well as various aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.
