Patrick Brownfield(1963 - 2014)

PAT BROWNFIELD Patrick D. Brownfield was born on June 5, 1963 in Chico. He was the youngest of Don and Betty Brownfield's five children. Pat was raised locally, and proud of that fact. From a young age he naturally excelled in many sports, and sports stuck with him his entire life, whether it be playing ball or umpiring for the teams he grew up loving, he was always involved. He preferred to be outdoors fishing, hunting, or just working with his dogs, who he loved like family. Pat had the kind of caring personality that would just draw people in, and his humor made him a "character" you simply couldn't forget. After high school his adventurous sprit led him to the state of Alaska where he experienced life on a fishing boat, and worked on the pipeline. Pat then returned to his home town of Chico where he could work with his loved ones, while continuing to grow the legacy of the family business, Chico Granite and Marble Works. Pat passed away on Saturday, March 15, 2014 at the home he grew up in. He was preceded in death by his beloved parents, Don and Betty Brownfield. Pat is survived by his fianc‚e and partner in life, Debra Stickel; a son, Daniel Knox; his siblings, Jason (Lynda) Brownfield, Kathleen (James) Jack, Ted Brownfield and Donnie Brownfield. Funeral Services will be held at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, March 22, 2014 at Newton-Bracewell Funeral Home, 680 Camellia Way, Chico. A private burial will then take place at Oak Hill Cemetery, Red Bluff.
