Daniel R. Patterson - Geneva, NY - Rochester Cremation

WATERTOWN, N.Y. — Daniel R. Patterson, 75, of Altamonte Springs, Florida, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on June 2, 2020 at his daughter’s home in Geneva, NY after a courageous battle with cancer.

A private memorial service will be held at the Glenwood Cemetery, in Watertown, NY at the convenience of the family.

Danny was born on January 13, 1945, in Watertown, NY, son of William and Jane Devine Patterson. Upon graduation from Immaculate Heart Academy in 1962, Dan, together with his brother Pat, honored the legacy of their grandfather, William McVicor Patterson, and father, William Allan Patterson, by continuing and expanding the Patterson Family Farm and Milk Plant business located on Patterson Road, Watertown, NY. After selling the dairy business in the late 70’s, Danny moved to Florida where he was President of Sobik’s Subs, and later President of Jreck Subs, Watertown, NY until his retirement.

He is survived by his daughter Shayne and son-in-law, Dr. Jason Feinberg, and their children, Andrew, Jason and Lily Feinberg, Geneva, NY; his daughter, Tricia and son-in-law, Christopher Swartz, and their daughters, Grace, Madeline and Finley Swartz, Watertown, NY; his daughter-in-law, Anna Patterson, Calcium, NY and families, William, Rebeca, Eliott and Reid Patterson, Dexter, NY; Micheal (Cody), Ashley and Elizabeth Patterson, Lacona, NY; Daniel, Kayla and Henry Patterson, Watertown, NY; Katlynn Patterson, Albany, NY; and mother of his children, Linda Patterson, Watertown, NY. Also surviving Dan are his six nieces, their husbands, Victoria Patterson, and several cousins. He was predeceased by his son, William A. Patterson, his sister, Colleen, his brother, Patrick and his sister-in-law, Sharon.

Dan will be remembered for his joking ways and his love for helping others. Dan had a bright and energetic personality and was known for his ability to make others laugh through his mischievous ways. Besides spending time with his family and friends, he enjoyed working on projects, mowing his lawn, and the satisfaction of hard day’s work. He will be greatly missed by all of his family and friends.

In Lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations be made to UR Medicine Home Care. Donations can be made in Dan’s memory online or through UR Medicine Home Care Foundation, Inc. 2180 Empire Blvd. Webster, NY 14580.

        Very sorry to hear of Dan’s passing. I remember as a little girl him delivering milk to our house. I remember chasing down the milk truck… probably for that delicious chocolate milk. I remember he was very funny . Sending my prayers .

    My sincere condolences to the Patterson family. Tom and I liked Danny very much. He was always so friendly and nice. I remember visiting the farm with my Dad when I was a kid and even way back when he delivered milk to my parents house. He will be greatly missed.

    Condolences to the Patterson family. Dan delivered the family milk to Weston’s years ago, so I had the privilege to have known him for a long time. My regret is that our paths took a different direction and I lost track of one of the best people I’ve ever met.

    I am saddened to hear of Danny’s passing. I am confident he is with God. Danny and I went through Sacred Heart School and Immaculate Heart Academy together. We even rode the same bus to get there since Rt. 37 and Patterson Rd. were on the same route. We were in the same neighborhood, so to speak. It was good seeing him at our class reunions. We would just pick up the conversation where we had left off from before. My sympathy especially to Linda and Tricia. Be assured that I will hold Danny in prayer.

    Rest In Peace my friend! Although I lost contact with Danny after leaving Watertown, I have wonderful memories of my day’s in the country. Danny taught this “city boy” all about farm life – riding a horse, milking a cow, farm chores, what to do and not to do on a farm, as well as how to handle Danny’s and Pat’s practical jokes. Then there were the delicious donuts and pies Mrs. Patterson shared with our family. My sincere condolences to Linda and the Patterson family. Gary (neighbor of the Patterson’s for over 5 years and classmate of Linda.

  20. Mike and Patti (Martin) O'Driscoll on June 17, 2020 at 11:22 am

    There are many fond memories with Danny at Sacred Heart School and IHA–especially in the band. When Danny’s daughter was the Dairy Princess, my kindergarten class from Ohio School was lucky to be invited to take a tour of the Patterson Farm and then enjoy cookies and milk. Danny and Linda were gracious hosts and the children talked about that trip often during the rest of the school year. Rest in peace Danny and may God give peace and strength to his family.

  21. Sharon O'Riley on June 26, 2020 at 12:49 pm
