Patrick Taylor Thorson

It is with great sadness that the family of Patrick Taylor Thorson announces his passing on Saturday, August 15, 2020, at the age of 41 years. Pat was born and raised on the Carnation Tree Farm in Carnation, Wash. He has spent the last 10 years living in Oroville, Wash. 

One of Pat’s life highlights was hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in 2007. He loved the peace and beauty of this experience plus meeting many fellow hikers along the way. His sense of humor, laugh, and big heart will be sorely missed. Patrick is lovingly remembered by his parents Vivian Taylor and Roger Thorson; his sister Tracie Thorson and husband Brad Miller, and their children Emma and Owen Miller; aunt Linda Thorson; cousin David Gray and wife Gerlyn; cousin Rhonda Gray; partner Lori Nevil and many friends.
