John A. Patterson

FARMINGTON — John A. Patterson, 70, of Farmington passed away Saturday (April 19, 2014) at Unity Point Health-Methodist in Peoria. John was born Oct. 20, 1943, in Canton. He was the son of Florence and Larry Horton and Dr. John H. Patterson. He attended Canton schools and graduated from Normal Community High School. John attended Canton College and Western Illinois University, where he received a bachelor’s degree in education in 1965 and a master’s degree in educational administration in 1973. He devoted his professional career to improving lives through education, working in Smithfield, Cuba, Eldorado and Farmington public schools. He retired from Farmington in 1994 after 21 years as an elementary and junior high school principal and he then worked part-time with the alternative school program in the Fulton/Schuyler Regional Office of Education. He would offer the same welcoming smile to the most gifted and troubled students — and more often than not their parents, too. John married Cynthia Hayduk on Aug. 1, 1964, at the Methodist Church in Canton. They were married 49 years. Cynthia survives. Also surviving are two children, John C. (Tricia) Patterson of Springfield and Jennifer Patterson of St. Louis; and four grandchildren: Sam and Owen Patterson and Mia and Ava Allen. John had two sisters – Lee Ann (Jack) Bennie and Cindy Horton and six brothers – Chris, Ben (Sandy), Joe (Beth), Jim (Barbara), Tom (Sharon), and Bob (Donna) Patterson. John was preceded in death by his parents and brother Chris. From wagon ruts on the Kansas plains to Rolling Stones concerts to Makanda’s Vulture Fest, John enjoyed traveling off the beaten path with Cynthia. A highlight of their travels was a trip to Italy to reconnect with Cynthia’s family. He treasured time spent with kids and grandkids, and he thoroughly enjoyed golfing, fishing, playing cards and spending time with his many good friends. John belonged to many organizations including the Illinois and Fulton County Retired Teachers Associations, Illinois Principals Association, local, state and national Parent – Teacher Association, AARP, Farmington Moose Lodge #1571, Fulton County Farm Bureau, West Central Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, Farmington Rotary Club, Farmington Academic Foundation Board, Century Investment Club and Maple Lane Country Club. A celebration of life service will be planned at a later date. He and his family are thankful to the dedicated members of Farmington Rescue 1100, whose fast response gave him additional time, and his family asks that memorials be made to support that organization. Anderson-Sedgwick Funeral Home, Farmington is in charge of arrangements.
