Patten David Ross Patten, 53, was born in Houston, Texas on September 5, 1963 to Ray and Arvella Patten. His active life was cut short from complications after his third brain tumor surgery on Monday, October 10, 2016. David graduated from Gahanna Lincoln High School, attended The Ohio State University and was a member of Beta Theta Pi Fraternity. He began his career as an assistant golf professional at Scioto Country Club, and transitioned into a career in commercial real estate sales, working for companies including Bellows & Associates, The Galbreath Company, Duke-Weeks, and most recently, Avison Young. In following a dream of owning his own business, he and friend started and successfully operated the Las Vegas J.D. Byrider franchise in the early 2000s in the middle of his real estate career. David's greatest accomplishments, however, center around his love of and dedication to his family and God. He is survived by his wife, Tracie Patten; and two daughters, Mia and Ava.
