OCEAN PARK - Patrick Stack, 56, died of natural causes on April 3, 2006, at his home in Ocean Park.

The son of James Thomas Stack and Evelyn Hope Lefferts, he was born March 3, 1950, at Camp Pendleton in San Diego, Calif. He grew up in Newark, Calif., where he married and had children.

He was a 20-year resident of Pacific County, and enjoyed playing his guitar, drawing and the companionship of his favorite cat. A private person, he took great comfort in reading his Bible. Several years ago he surrendered his will to his God and at long last found his pathway to peace.

Mr. Stack is survived by a son, Joshua Stack; daughter, Daisy Stack; sisters, Peggy Kimball of Clinton, Aliza Allen of San Francisco, Calif., and Robin Creekmore of Rockaway Beach, Ore.; and many nephews and nieces including Steve and Julie Pickering and family and David Pickering. His son James Patrick Stack II and a brother, Michael Stack, preceded him in death.

Arrangements are by Penttila's Chapel by The Sea, Long Beach.
