I did not grow up within reach of KIRO 7 TV, so as a child I did not get to experience the magic that was J.P. Patches. As an adult, I learned what a big part he played in the history, fun, and magic of the region. 

There was something about that face of his that drew people to him. He will be missed and remembered by kids young and old. 

Chris Wedes, in character as J.P. Patches, made a very important visit to Shoreline in 2003. I had the privilege and honor of sharing the title of Grand Marshall for the Celebrate Shoreline Parade with the great J.P. Patches.
