Andrew J. Patterson, 79, died peacefully at home in Hazlet, NJ on April 30th 2020. Andy was born in Brooklyn, NY on May 6, 1940 to Doris and Andrew Patterson.

Upon graduation, Andrew enlisted in the U.S. Marines and served for four years (1957-1961) and re-enlisted for the Vietnam War (1965-1967). He served in the Marine’s 1st Battalion 3rd Marines, as well as the 4th Marine Regiment where he rose to the rank of Sergeant (E-5).
