Eugene “Pat” Patrick Wheeldon, Sr., 59, passed away peacefully with his wife Julie and his mother-in-law Deanna by his side on Sept. 18, 2017 in Crescent City. A longtime resident of Del Norte County, he was born July 31, 1958 in Crescent City.

Pat was a very hard worker in the timber industry. He started work at Simonson Mill at an early age. Pat then went to the hills to log timber and had the time of his life logging. In his spare time, he loved fishing, hunting and playing softball and cribbage.

Pat is survived by his wife of 20 years Julie, mother-in -law Deanna Claassen, and his two daughters Stephanie Cendejas (Chris) and Krystal Farley. He was so proud to be the Grandpa to Taylor, Kaydence, Alayna, Savannah and Lucas.

Pat leaves behind his two best friends Danny Mitchel and Mike Loftin, Sr. and many other relatives.
