From a contemporary press report:
A loving and much beloved man, Colonel Clarence Richard “Paddy” Driscoll of Sun City Center, Florida, formerly of Northern Virginia, died July 23, 2002. He is survived by his wife (Margie), four children, Patti, Mark, Rick and Mike; eight grandchildren,
Patrick, Lindsay, Meghan, Kristen, Elizabeth, Bobby, Leslie and Michael; and sister, Dorothy.
In 1945, he graduated from West Point. Thirty years in the Army Signal Corps took him all over the world, including Germany, Japan and Vietnam. He later worked at Computer Science Corporation, Amtrak, and Satellite Business Systems. Paddy enjoyed traveling and learning; he visited over 65 countries. Fighting prostate cancer didn't keep him from volunteering at a school and helping the poor with their taxes. Paddy always had a new joke (and many old ones) and would throw a wonderful St. Patrick's Day party.
His memorial service will be at Ft. Myer Old Post Chapel at 12:45 on September 18th, followed by interment at Arlington National Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to LifePath Hospice, 1647 Sun City enter Plaza, Suite 104, Sun City Center, FL 33573.
