Patt passed away on Tuesday, May 21, 2024.

Born in Orangeburg County, S.C., he was a son of the late Jessie Lee “Sonny Boy” Abbott Jr. and Alberta Porter Abbott. He was a member of Healing Springs Baptist Church where he served as a deacon. He retired from Savannah River Site having worked as a planner, machinist, and a Radcon Inspector. Patt loved spending time with his family and friends; usually, you would find him sharing a fine meal with his loved ones. He loved spending time fishing on the Edisto River and was an avid hunter. Patt’s legacy lives on in the hearts of those he mentored and the dogs he trained, each carrying forward the lessons learned, and the love shared. Though Patt may have passed from this world, the impact of his superpower of mentorship will continue to inspire and uplift for generations to come.Top of Form
