Alfred Patton English III
September 24, 1960 – May 18, 2016
Alfred Patton English III, age 55, of New Castle, DE, passed away peacefully while surrounded by his loving family on Wednesday, May 18, 2016.
Pat was born in Salem, New Jersey on September 24, 1960 and was the son of Alfred Patton English II and Kathleen “Kay” (McManus) Bartlett. A graduate of Pennsville High School, he worked for the Town Of Pennsville, NJ, retiring after over 20 years of service.
Pat was a loyal and avid fan of all of the Philadelphia sports teams. He had a wonderful, dry sense of humor – always focusing on the many things he could do and never on his limitations. His niece Brooke was a great source of comfort to him and also provided great care to him during his illness.
He was preceded in death by his father, Alfred II and step father, Bill Bartlett. Pat is survived by his mother, Kay with whom he lived; sister, Sherry Sweetman (Ronald); nieces, Brooke Alston and Kate and Lauren Sweetman; step mother, Elizabeth English; step brothers, Richard Wilber and Andrew Wilber; step sisters, Deborah Wilber and Peggy Foster; and aunt, Shirley Beasley.
A funeral service will be held at 11:30 am on Tuesday morning, May 24, 2016, at the Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 N. DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE, where a visitation for family and friends will be held from 10 am until 11:30 am. Interment will be held privately.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in Pat’s memory may be made to the A.I. duPont Hospital for Children Muscular Dystrophy Clinic, 1600 Rockland Rd., Wilmington, DE 19803.
