Robert Patrick Brown was born July 17th, 1951, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. As a young boy his family moved to Claremore.

It was in the early years of school that he would meet Reggie Baughman, who would become a lifelong friend. During his high school years, he would meet Judy Timmons. The two would begin talking and enjoy their first date together at their senior prom, with the class of 1969. Two years later the couple would be engaged and married on August 6, 1971. Over the next several years Pat's working career would move him and his family to Terryville, Connecticut, then to South Carolina.
