Cecil Patterson, Jr, Class of '62

I majored in accounting at the University of Southern Mississippi after four years in the Air Force. Then I spent several years in a national public accounting firm in Houston, Texas, and became a CPA. A company hired me to come to Jacksonville, Florida as their CFO. After an MBA from the University of North Florida, I opened a CPA practice in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. The firm name is now The Patterson CPA Group, Inc. My son Chris is in charge of the firm. Ponte Vedra Beach is a coastal resort and bedroom community between Jacksonville and St. Augustine on the northeast Florida coast. Married since 1979, my wife and I have three great children and their spouses, five beautiful granddaughters, and two handsome grandsons. My wife, Diana, is a native Floridian (a rare breed these days) and artist. Our daughters and money went to the University of Florida and we are all now avid Gator Fans. Our son finished at the University of North Florida where he played basketball. We all love fishing, sports, and the northeast Florida lifestyle. At present, we are both still working some but transitioning into retirement and enjoying the extra time with travel, fishing, and fun.
