Myrol Allen “Pat” Sweeney was born on April 21, 1936. He passed away peacefully surrounded by family and caregivers in Kent on August 15, 2023.
In 1940, Pat and his family migrated to the West Coast from Wisconsin “one state at a time” and eventually settled in Kirkland, WA in 1948. After serving in the US Army from 1954-56, Pat began a partnership to start a newspaper and printshop in Duvall, WA. It was a decision that led Pat to embark on a successful 50-year career in the newspaper and printing industries.
