Zane Ryan PATTERSON

Skinny, Papa Zane

Aug. 25, 1983 – Dec. 24, 2013

It is with heavy hearts that we announce Zane’s sudden passing.

Zane leaves behind the love of his life, Jessica and their beautiful daughter Mariah, who were his whole world; his mom Sandy, his dad John and brother Chad, many nieces and nephews as well as extended family and close friends.

Zane grew up in 100 Mile and had a very close knit group of friends who have stayed together to this day: the Kennedy Road Klan, as they called themselves (after the road they constantly gathered at after school and on weekends).

Zane will be remembered by all who knew him… his love of mud-bogging… camping… his constant ‘project’ vehicles… his courtesy… a sock or sleeve on his way home from camp… the bonfires… Camel Rock where the group never strayed far from…

Zane had a passion for operating cranes (machinery in general) which is how he made his living. His job took him from B.C. to Alberta, to De Beers diamond mine in Snap Lake, Fort McMurray and Saskatchewan.

A memorial service will be held in 100 Mile House, B.C. on the May long weekend. Details to follow.

A memorial account has been set up at CIBC for Jessica and Mariah.
