He died peacefully at his daughter's, Shammarie, home in Bloomington. Hippie's wishes were to have a "Celebration of Life" memorial at Rapidan Dam, Mankato when "the weather is warmer" in July 2014.

    Hippie was born October 15, 1945, in Winnebago, the son of George and Agnes (Karles) Patterson. He grew up in the Delavan area and graduated from Delavan High School in June 1963. Hip served in the U.S. Army as a radio T/T Operator with the highest clearance a solder can have in France for his tour. Among many trades, Hippie was a Master wood craftsman and said that he had carved "many a forrest" in his days.
