Timothy Todd Patula

September 16, 1958 ~ September 27, 2018 (age 60)

Timothy Todd Patula, resident of Chicago, Illinois, passed away on September 27, 2018 at the age of 60 years. Timothy was born in Berwyn, Illinois, and raised in Woodridge, Illinois.  Timothy attended Purdue University (BS, Electrical Engineering-1980), Valparaiso University (JD-1983), and Oxford University/Oxford Brookes University/Oxford Institute of Legal Practice (QLTT-2009).  Timothy was a preeminent intellectual property lawyer, an Arbitrator and Mediator with the American Arbitration Association, International Center for Dispute Resolution and had over 25 years of experience in Domestic and International disputes.  Timothy was an Attorney with Patula & Associates, P.C. since 1990, and a Solicitor of the Senior Courts in England and Wales.

When Timothy was not working, he was an avid outdoorsman and was especially fond of fishing.  He was a huge fan of the Chicago Blackhawks and rarely missed a game.  He was a collector of many things and was always involved in a new project or adventure.  Most endearing was that Tim was an exceptional and generous friend to those who knew him.

He will be sadly missed by his mother, Irene Patula; his partner, Gina Dillon; a brother, Rodney (Ariel) Patula, Mona (David) Crawford; and many friends and extended family.  He was predeceased by his father, Henry Patula.

The visitation service will be held on Saturday, October 6, 2018 from 11:00 am until the time of the Funeral Mass at 12:00 pm at St. Mary Catholic Church 312 Lincoln Avenue in Woodstock.  Interment will follow in the Calvary Catholic Cemetery in Woodstock.
