Patillo Ainsworth Finlayson, all of Westbrook's kids called him Uncle Pat. All his siblings and friends called him Ainsworth.
Jennie called me this morning with the news that Uncle Pat passed away during the night. This one hurts. I'm sure it affects all my siblings on the same level. Pat was a sweet and lovable fellow. He is loved and will be missed. He is well now.
A few years ago, on this blog, I posted stories about Pat's wartime experiences aboard the USS LST-312. Anyone who has kept up with this blog has come across his name on many occasions. A while back my niece Sara Noojin had interviewed Pat for a school project. I thought it well written and thought you all might appreciate reading it.
