General Pattons Son Dies

by Rolway / June 30, 2004 7:14 AM PDT

BOSTON -- Maj. Gen. George Smith Patton, son of the famed World War II general of the same name, died at his home in Hamilton, Mass., his wife said Wednesday. He was 80.

Although Patton followed in his father's footsteps, seeing his own combat duty in Korea and Vietnam, relatives say he was his own man.

Even after Patton's retirement in 1980, he remained active, founding Green Meadows Farm in Hamilton, where he named the fields after Vietnam soldiers who died under his command. The farm grows a variety of produce, including blueberries and strawberries.
