Patrick was born on November 3, 1931 in Los Angeles, California to Henry and Effie Nave. At the young age of seven, his mother passed away and he was then raised by his aunt on a farm in Hemet, CA. After graduating high school, Patrick joined the U.S. Army and was stationed in Germany. After serving his country, he returned to farming in California, where he met his first wife. They had two children together and moved the family to Sandpoint, ID, where they purchased Sandpoint Building Supply.
In 1966 Patrick met Gladys, his wife of 55 years. Patrick built houses, then the couple moved to Opheim, MT for seven years and he worked as a carpenter for the Air Force. In 1980, they moved back to Sandpoint where he worked for a local photographer, mat cutting and making picture frames. Up to his retirement, when he was 72 years old, he worked for Dave’s Equipment and Repaired cars.
Throughout his life, Patrick was a hard worker. After retirement, he became an avid reader of history. Patrick’s hobbies included; clock repair, car and farm equipment repair, along with finding treasures at thrift stores and junk yards.
