Mr. Patrick Edward Nix, of Greenwood, passed away on the morning of Tuesday, April 23, 2019. He was 83. Pat was born March 21, 1936 in Indianapolis, a son of the late Jack Nix and Anna Mae Nix.
Pat attended George Washington High School and was a member of the graduating Class of 1953.

He served in that capacity for 20 years and ultimately retired from the Department December 15, 2005.
To say that Pat loved to golf is an understatement. He scored at least two holes-in-one over the years.
