Mark Lynn Patterson, age 68, sadly passed away on January 27, 2024. He was born in Little Rock, Arkansas on October 27, 1955 to Joann Patterson.

He is survived by his mother Joann Lovelady; his five children Gloria Locklear, Billy Howell, Kevin Spainhour, Jessica Angel, and Jordon Sbabo. He had 10 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Also survived by a brother Chris Lovelady and two sisters Nina Lovelady and JoAnna Scott along with many extended family members.

Mark was a Master of the Culinary Arts. He loved sports of all kings, especially the Razorbacks. Most of all, he loved studying and betting on the horses at Oaklawn Park. Mark never stayed in one place very long, but he loved his family and will be missed by all who loved and knew him.

A celebration of his life if being planned at a later date.
