Patrick J. Pogrant, 54, passed away on Oct. 9, 2021, after a three-year, courageous battle with leukemia. Patrick was born in Menominee, Mich., on July 30, 1967, the son of Jeffrey and Corry Pogrant.
Patrick graduated from Menominee High School in 1985. In 1987, he married the love of his life, Jill Ann Rothe. She preceded him in death on Nov. 21, 2018, due to metastatic breast cancer. Shortly after their wedding they headed for Phoenix, Ariz., as aspiring entrepreneurs. Both were successful. Patrick owned and operated Patrick’s Classy Cars for over 30 years and became very well known and respected in the auto restoration industry.
