Patrick Walter Mudgett, Jr., age 63, passed away peacefully at home on Monday, March 21, 2022, following a brief illness. A pipe welder by trade, he retired from Union Local No. 190 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Known as a “resourceful soul,” Pat was an avid thrift shopper. He flipped several houses, enjoyed gardening, cooking, cutting wood and especially liked tinkering with motors. His greatest love, however, was his family. He was born December 9, 1959 in Cleveland to the late Patrick Walter and Dorothy Jane Hermes Mudgett, Sr. He was also preceded in death by his sons, Michael and Nicholas Mudgett. He is survived by his former wife and best friend, Jane Mudgett; his daughter, Michelle Mudgett; Jack Latham, who he lovingly referred to as his son; grandchildren, Leo and Leona Fischer; John Sabo, whom he considered a brother; his sisters, Jeanne (Ed) Green of Columbus, Carole (Stephen) Drake of Petoskey, Michigan and Gail (Steven) Mullinger of Cincinnati; and numerous nieces and nephews. Pat will be missed by all who knew him. A Celebration of Life gathering will be held at a later date. Underwood Funeral Home is assisting the family.
