David J. Patterson

David J. Patterson, 59, passed away Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019, at OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, Illinois. Visitation will be held Wednesday, Sept. 4 from 4 to 7 p.m. Funeral services will be held at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ in Wheatland at 10 a.m., Thursday, Sept. 5, with Pastor Tessa Cavey officiating.

David was born April 28, 1960, at Clinton, Iowa, to Jerome and Kathleen Van Kirk Patterson. He was united in marriage to Lisa Johnston on Sept. 6, 1986, at Urbandale.

Survivors include his wife, Lisa; two sons, Sean (friend Maddy Good), of Clinton, and Seth, of Bernard; a granddaughter, Skye Parker Patterson; two sisters Susan (Richard) Gilliam, of Prescott, Arizona, and Ann Mulvihill, of Eldridge; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and a brother-in-law, Joe Mulvihill.

David started his career as a carpenter framing houses and doing remodeling before opening a business in Davenport with his wife Lisa. He was currently a realtor for Ruhl and Ruhl Realty out of DeWitt. David was a former golf coach for Calamus-Wheatland and his passions were his family, golf and Cardinals baseball. He was a diehard Hawkeye fan and his sarcastic sense of humor will dearly be missed.

Chapman Funeral Home is assisting David’s family.
