Beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend passed away peacefully, with his family by his side on Sunday, May 9, 2021 at Covenant HealthCare - Cooper. He was 72 years old. Patrick Dale Vollmer was born on May 25, 1948 in Saginaw, Michigan to the late Walter J. and Elizabeth (Lonsway) Vollmer. He was a proud 1966 graduate of St. Andrew Catholic High School. Upon graduation, he attended Delta College receiving his Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice. Pat then worked as a police officer for the City of Saginaw for seven years. He met the love of his life, Maryanne Cozzolino, and they were married on December 3, 1970 in Saginaw. Pat worked throughout the Saginaw area his whole life, but enjoyed most the art of selling and wholesaling cars. Pat was a faithful member of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church. In his free time, Pat enjoyed being outdoors in the pool, traveling, golfing, camping, attending oldies concerts, playing his guitar and spending time with his family. In the fall, he proudly supported Notre Dame and Michigan State football, coaching from his living room.
