J. P. Patches, RIP

The Seattle Times has a fine obituary. I like this bit:
Former Sonics guard Slick Watts once said, "In most big cities, the famous people are the sports stars, but in Seattle, J.P. was the man."
And some memorabilia:

Addendum: there is some social history in the check list.  Can you imagine a similar television personality in the present day advocating either praying or milk drinking (what about the lactose intolerant!) or eating all your food (on the way to being an obese adult!) like this?

Hat tips: Julie Anne Kempf and Jeff Simon, on Facebook
