Patrick D. Waldron of Harmony, North Carolina, passed away on Monday morning, May 27, 2024, at his home in Harmony, North Carolina, after a short illness. He was born on Nov. 12, 1948, in Niles, Michigan, to Charles and Peggy Waldron. After completing kindergarten to high school in Niles, he was graduated from Kendall School of Art and Design.

He married Elaine Fisher in August 1969 and had two sons, Nicholas (Nick) and Geoffrey (Geoff) who live in Charlotte, North Carolina. From 2004 until his death, he was married to Wendy Loveless who
survives him. He also was survived by a brother, Michael Waldron of Niles, and a granddaughter, Brittany Beeks of Chicago, Illinois.
Pat had a great singing voice and inherited his mother’s artistic talent. He spent many years designing furniture for La-Z-Boy and Schnadig before free-lancing as a furniture designer in
North Carolina. He also designed for South Korean and Taiwanese firms before moving from furniture design to hosting weddings at his antebellum home in North Carolina with his wife
Wendy. He was for a while also a gentleman farmer with a herd of beef cows on his estate. Per his wishes, he will be cremated and there will be no funeral or memorial service. In
remembrance, Patrick’s family will plant a tree on his farm.
