Charles Patrick Harget - June 29, 2013

Charles Patrick Harget passed away peacefully on June 29, 2013. The proverbial wandering soul... he has marked his final trip of his journey of life. Patrick was born to Charles Harry and Nora Patricia Harget on September 10, 1947 in Santa Rosa, California. Patrick swam for the Ukiah Dolphins in Ukiah where the family lived during his younger life, and then for the Village Plunge Swim Team after the family relocated to Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, California. Patrick was an outgoing young man, attended Montgomery High School and was a competitive swimmer for the Vikings Swim Team. Patrick graduated high school with a Swimming Scholarship to Brigham Young University, Utah. Patrick returned to Sonoma County where he lived for years, working and starting a family before moving to Las Vegas, Nevada. In Las Vegas, when not working, Patrick loved to shoot a game of pool with his friends. In October 2010 he moved to Taft, California. Patrick loved seeing and spending time with his beloved children, family and friends. He particularly loved sharing a good glass of red wine, a great meal, and talking & laughing about life and good times with everyone. He was always interested in learning… and new experiences.
