October 11, 1963 — June 18, 2024


Patrick was born in San Bernardino, CA on October 11, 1963 to his loving parents, Delbert and Ronda Pearson. Patrick tragically lost his life in Ruidoso’s South Fork Fire on June 17, 2024.

Recently, Patrick was a member of the Brandon Dawes Band, playing all over the Southwest and a house regular at the Quarters Nightclub and Grill in Ruidoso, NM. Patrick’s musical talent encompassed every genre of music, but he truly enjoyed playing country music.
