Edward (Chip) Everett Patten, Jr.

It is with great sadness that we announce Chip Patten's sudden passing from cardiac arrest at age 58. Chip was the cherished husband of Andrea Patten, son of Edward E. Patten and Barbara Parry of New Hampshire. Chip passionately loved his children Stacey, Wade and Nelson (Nicky). He was the dear older brother of Lawrence Patten, Victor Parry, Dave Parry, and Caroline Reichel (deceased) and their families and was son-in-law to Jean Colton of Belvedere, and family.
Chip was born in Nashua, N.H., grew up in Milford, N.H., and attended University of New Hampshire before moving to Los Angeles, where he became a cabinetmaker and general contractor. After marrying on August 4, 1990, and following the birth of his children, the family moved to Belvedere, CA, in 1995, where he resided until passing.
Chip had a lifelong love of woodworking. His sense of design extended to gardening. He was devoted to family, work, and volunteering with Boy Scouts of America, mentoring many children and young adults. This avocation included the position of commissioner, president of the board to renovate Mill Valley Scout Hall, running an annual Pinewood Derby workshop, assisting in numerous Eagle Scout projects and making many lasting improvements at Camp Tamarancho in Marin. He also was an Eagle Scout.
Donations in his memory can be made to Marin Council, Boy Scouts of America, 225 West End Avenue, San Rafael, CA, 94901 - 2645.
