COVID-19 Passing of Sergeant AlTerek Patterson

Hello all,

My name is Corrado DeVincenzo. I am a close friend to the Patterson family and a Law Enforcement Officer. This GofundMe has been created in conjunction with PBA Local 366 in order to assist Sergeant AlTerek Patterson's wife and three young children after his sudden death on Easter Morning.

As first responders, we put our lives on the line every day and in this case we are fighting a enemy that we can not see, COVID-19. However, like always, we stick together and put the public first. Please rally together with us and AlTerek's youngest brother, New Jersey State Trooper, Michael Patterson to support AlTerek's family during the most difficult time of their lives.

AlTerek fought a courageous battle against COVID-19 and unexpectedly passed away on Easter Sunday. He served The Bedminster Township Police Department proudly since January 1, 2006. AlTerek Patterson was promoted to the rank of Sergeant in October 2014. He always had a smile on his face and touched the lives of so many residents at their time of need.

Terek was an absolute family man. Everything he did was to put his wife (a Human Service Specialist), 8 year old daughter and 2 1/2 year old twins, in a better position. He picked up as many extra hours as he could so he could provide for his family and buy his college sweetheart her dream home. He made his dad the best man in his wedding and called his mom every single day. That's the type of man he was and some of the reasons why he will be miss by many. Please join us in raising support for his wife and children.

If you wish to make a contribution directly to Terek's wife Brandi, please venmo her @Brandi-patterson-0 or make any checks out to “Brandi Patterson” and mail them to:
