Fred Patterson, Denton newspaper publisher and arts patron, dies at 92


Longtime Denton Record-Chronicle Publisher Emeritus Fred Patterson was remembered by friends and family as a man with two careers.

He built a reputation in Denton as an advertising salesman and newspaper publisher.

Patterson died Saturday. He was 92.
