Kelby Patten

Kelby Patten, 49, of Olla, passed from this life on Monday, September 7, 2020 at Memorial Hermann Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas.

Kelby loved his family! His second favorite love in life was likely a tie between LSU football and Batman. These would be quickly followed by the food network channel. He enjoyed fishing and sitting around a table playing Rook and eating.

Kelby loved to talk and visit with anyone who wanted to. It could have been a complete stranger and he would have sat there for hours and entertained conversation. Simply put, Kelby Patten was a family man.

Services were held at 2 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 12, at Life Church of LaSalle in Trout with Pastor Steve Cripps officiating.
