SOUTH BEND - Patrick E. Pomes was born on March 14, 1949, in Cincinnati, Ohio. He died at his home in South Bend, Indiana, on September 21, 2013. He was a 1967 graduate of Downers Grove High School, a 1971 graduate from Bradley University, and held an MBA from the University of Chicago. Patrick was employed by Allied-Signal Corporation, (now Honeywell), in February 1991. He retired in March 2013 from his position as a corporate planner. Pat began teaching as an adjunct professor for Indiana Tech University in July 2008. This quickly became his passion as Pat took great joy in teaching and forming lasting relationships with his students. Pat had a gift for encouraging and mentoring former students, and quite often they would contact Pat for assistance and advice. Pat took the time to know his students personally and, because of this, Pat has touched a great many students at Indiana Tech and later at Purdue University of South Bend. Pat is survived by his wife, Debbie Hudson; son, Franklin Hudson-Pomes; son, David Pomes; and granddaughter, Emma Rose Pomes; and daughter, Jennifer Pomes-Lange. He is also survived by four younger brothers, James, Joe, Paul and Robert. Patrick was preceded in death by his parents, Adrian and Irene Pomes; and his older brother, John Pomes. Visitation will be held Wednesday, September 25, from 6-8 pm at the McGann Hay, Granger, Chapel, 13260 SR 23, enter off Cherry Road.
