Phillip Keith Patten ('75)

Keith passed away on Dec. 18 2009 at the young age of 52. He lived a very good life and had a very successful career and two amazing children that he loved with everything he had. He graduated from MVHS in 1975. He always had a lot of interest in many different things. One of his passions was riding and racing dirt bikes. He even made some money at it. He had a very good job in the trucking industry. He started out as a driver for Con-Way freight and then he went in to a management position at Con-Way freight. He worked there for 26 years and he was very good at running one of the companies largest service center. In 2000, he was injured pretty bad in a dirt bike accident and he was not expected to make it. He was in a coma for 7 days and he woke up and started on the road to recovery. He bounced back from that and he did pretty well. Keith and I were always very close and he was the best brother a girl could ask for. He was amazing and I miss him everyday. When he got sick, we were lucky enough to be able to spend everyday with each other. He was always a very strong person and he stayed that way up till it was time for him to go. My brother first, my friend second, my hero always. I love you K.P.
