Patrick Baker Brower, 79, of Corpus Christi, Texas passed away February 6, 2014. Pat was born in Willard, Missouri and graduated from Drury College in Springfield, Missouri; it was there that he met the love of his life, his wife of 55 years, Julie. Patrick was a Korean War veteran who proudly served in the United States Army. Continuing life's journey, he began a successful sales career for Nalco Chemical Company. The oil patch provided Pat with many opportunities; the most coveted being a stage on which to hone his practical jokes and funny stories to anyone who was fortunate enough to cross his path. He appreciated a fine cigar, a perfectly barbequed pork rib, and most importantly, the company of family and many dear friends. He and his wife were active in several clubs. Pat is a founding member of the esteemed ROMEOS (Retired Old Men Eating Out) where a sense of humor and friendship were always the specials of the day. Texas has truly lost a fine gentleman; he will be greatly missed, but not forgotten. He is survived by his wife, Julie Ann Liles Brower; his children, Suzanne Brower Laufer (Douglas), Timothy Brower (Vanessa); his grand darlings, Merrill, Laura, Elizabeth, Eva; and his sister in law, Henrietta Brower. He is preceded in death by his son, Robert Kevin Brower; his brother, Robert Brower; and his parents, Benjamin and Sybil Brower.
