Barton Duvall Pattie, Jr. passed away on Friday, September 15, 2023. Born in Waynesboro, VA, the son of Barton Duvall Pattie, Sr. and Augusta Harman Pattie.
After a childhood in Richmond, VA, he lived in London, England because of his father's career as an Associated Press journalist. He came back to the United States to attend Clemson University where he graduated, with honors, as a Chemical Engineer.
