PATMALNEE, Roy Francis

ROY FRANCIS PATMALNEE

Born in Boston, Massachusetts on August 31, 1936; died August 24, 2010 of Parkinson’s Disease. His battle with the disease was heroic. He was the son of Robert and Francesca Berardinella Patmalnee. He was accomplished in his desire to teach the young and to play baseball. Cape Cod’s baseball fields were his playgrounds. His real love was literature; poetry was his way of intrusion of what life offered. He moved to the Washington, DC area after graduating from Curry’s College in Massachusetts. He continued his education at the University of Maryland earning a Master’s degree in English. He was hired in 1965 at Wheaton High School’s English Department. While there, he taught seniors how to love the beauty of the English language. He directed classroom plays encouraging his students to beyond the written word and enter the realm of imagery and imagination. He also coached the boys weight lifting crew which he had done while at Curry’s. After leaving Wheaton High, he took a year to write a novel which is published by Amazon books. Returning to teaching, he was hired at Sligo Middle School, where he coached the baseball team for many years, as well as put on school plays. A favorite quote of his was from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s “Self Reliance”…”a foolish consistency is the hob-goblin of little minds.” Remember him thus: ”Give all to love, obey thy heart; friends, kindred days; estates, good fame, plans, credits and the Muse-Nothing Refuse!” Friends may call at Collins Funeral Home, 500 University Boulevard, West, Silver Spring, MD, (Valet Parking), Monday, August 30, 2010 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Interment private.
