Whittier – James Quinton Patterson, age 68, passed away Friday, September 25, 2020.

James was born February 28, 1952 in Jesup, GA to the late George Patterson and the late Opal Harris Patterson. James had made his home in Cherokee, NC for most of his life. In his younger days, he enjoyed fishing, and as the years went by, he would pass his time by eating German chocolate cake and cooking the best boiled peanuts one could imagine and selling them as a roadside vendor. He enjoyed attending vintage car shows and spending quality time with his family. Mr. Patterson made sure to read and study the Bible, and he attended Victory Baptist Church in Bryson City, NC where the late Pastor Tom Harris served not only as his pastor but also as a mentor and friend to James. In the words of his daughter, “He is the best Daddy I could ever ask for.”

James is survived by many who loved him and cherished his friendship.

Crawford / Ray Funeral Home and Cremation Service is honored to be caring for the family of James Patterson.

Condolences from family and friends
