PATRICK PATTY BOY MAU Beloved Husband, Father and Grandfather, Patrick "Patty Boy" Mau, was born on June 17, 1936 in Keokea, Maui. He was the first child of six to be born to Patrick Mau, Sr. and Peggy Mau. Patrick was a graduate of Lahaina Luna Class of 1953. After graduation he joined the Army on October 5, 1953 and was stationed at Ladd Airforce Base, Fairbanks Alaska, HQHQ & Co. Yukon Command, where he was an aircraft mechanic. At the conclusion of his military career, he relocated to Southern California and was employed with Litton Industries from 1960-1969. While with the Manufacturing Guidance Systems Division of Litton, he met his wife Mary Elizabeth Williams. The couple married in Los Angeles on June 16, 1962 and had two daughters, Leah and Kimberly. Following Litton Patrick joined Xerox manufacturing and enjoyed a successful and productive 30+ year career until his retirement in 2000.
