Change 34th St. in Fremont to Patches Place

Chris Wedes, the man behind the beloved Seattle character, J.P. Patches, passed away on Sunday, July 22nd. Although a bronze sculpture was recently placed on this same street, we Patches Pals want more.

Renaming 34th St. would be perfect, because it leads to one of the city's dumps, and every Patches Pal knows that J.P. was the mayor of the city dump.

      J.P. Patches was a big part of many childrens lives, and then their children. He left a legacy that is unmatched. He gave of himself and asked nothing in return. He deserves a street named after him.

      I grew up watching this Seattle Icon and had the pleasure of being on his show as a cub scout,and having met him a couple of times at J.P. Patches appearances,I would like to see his body of work honored by naming this street in Seattle as an lasting tribute to his humor and love which he shared with the youth of the Pacific Northwest.
