    Pat Patterson passed away that year.

      The picture is from the 1972 ABC Tournament, the last time the “3858” Budweisers got together, though Bill Lillard took Patterson’s place in the actual bowling. That was in April. Patterson died a month later, before the tournament was over. I remember his death very well, since it happened a few days after I got married.

    What a shame—he was only 47 years old. A very congenial man with a great sense of humor. Did he have cancer?
