North Greenbush- Daniel R. “Danny” Patton, 42, formerly of Brunswick and more recently Troy, died unexpectedly Wednesday, June 22, 2022.
Born in Niskayuna, October 20, 1979, Dan is the son of the late Vickie C. (Rogers) Patton and Daniel F. and Karen (Gypson) Patton of Eagle Mills, who survive.
Dan attended Troy City Schools.
For over 17 years Dan was employed as an installation technician by the former Time Warner Cable Company (now known as Spectrum) in Albany, where he put his love of computers and electronics to work. He later worked as an independent internet technology contractor for several area firms, establishing web sites, computer networks, and 5G systems. Most recently, he was employed as a warehouse associate at the newly created Amazon Fulfillment Center in Schodack.
Dan had a wonderfully creative, artistic eye and used his computer skills to transform photographs taken with his camera or phone into beautiful artwork to share with family and friends. He loved to spend time outdoors, hiking and enjoying nature. In addition to Dan’s quiet side, he also had a sense of adventure that led him to occasionally push the envelope, including a one-time skydiving trip.
In addition to his father and stepmother, Dan is survived by his sister and brother-in-law, Jessica and Harold Park of Ellington, CT, his paternal grandfather, Raymond Patton of Eagle Mills, a nephew, Isaiah Park of Ellington, CT, his maternal aunt, Pamela Duncan of Eagle Mills, a paternal uncle, David Patton of Eagle Mills, several close cousins, and many dear friends.
Relatives and friends are invited to call on Tuesday, June 28, 2022, from 4:00-7:00 p.m. at the Howard B. Tate and Son Funeral Home Inc., 2237 NY Route 7, located in Raymertown. A graveside ceremony for Dan will be held on Wednesday, June 29th, at 6:00 p.m. at the family plot in Eagle Mills Cemetery, 550 Garfield Road, Eagle Mills, NY.
