Fr Val Patterson
Sunday, 4 June 2012
Ex-students from the mid eighties to the late 90s would remember Fr Val Patterson so it is with much sadness to announce his passing on 29 May this year. He had been ill for some time and was living at the St Joseph's Nursing Home in Kensington Sydney. The funeral was held in Sydney on Monday 4 June and he was buried at the MSC Community Cemetery, St Mary's Towers, Douglas Park. After leaving Daramalan in the late 90s, Fr Val went on to become the Vicar of Education in the Archdiocese of Canberra Goulburn and there is building named in his honour at the Catholic Education Offices in Manuka. Fr Val had also been Headmaster at both Chevalier and Downlands Colleges. Please keep his family in your prayers.
