Paul "Pat" McGee
Paul "Pat" McGee of Novato - an active volunteer at local hospitals - died Thursday, Aug. 12, 1993 at Novato Community Hospital. He was 62.
Mr. McGee joined the Navy when he was 20 and served during the Korean War. After the war, he worked at a factory, then decided to join the military again and served for six years with the Air Force. He held the rank of staff sergeant.
While stationed at Hamilton Field, he met his wife, DeAnne McGee, and her three children. The couple had two more children.

He might best be remembered or his annual visits as Santa to Novato Community and Sonoma hospitals.
