Rose and I just learned of JP's passing. In life you are sometimes fortunate enough to become friends with truly good people. JP was such a person: kind, caring and never having met a stranger. He touched our lives for the better and he will certainly be missed. Our deepest condolences.

Russ and Rose Richmond, Savanah, Ga

So sorry to hear about Pat's passing. We were friends in Abilene, Tx, and lived in Denton when you all lived there. Our prayers are with you and family.

Robert, we are so sorry to hear of your sad news. I didn't have the chance to meet your dad, but his son sure is a great man. I bet he was as well. Remember that your friends love you a lot and are here for you always. Karen and Warren Law

SAVANNAH, GA - Jonny Pat (JP) Armstrong, aged 76, died on 6-23-17 at his son’s home under the care of Hospice Savannah. He was born in Pilot Point, TX on 11-9-40. He lived most of his life in Abilene, TX, Bryan, TX, and Oklahoma City, OK. He moved to Savannah ten years ago to spend time with his youngest son and daughter in law and his grandchildren. He was a frequent attendee at Savannah Christian Preparatory School golf events and Savannah Arts Academy music performances where he was called Pop by all.

JP was a graduate of Abilene High School where he was an accomplished athlete. He attended Baylor University for one year on a baseball scholarship. In 1960 he married his high school sweetheart, Linda Lou Simmons of Abilene, TX.

He was a Scottish Rite Master Mason and was active in his Lodge as a young man. He was a man of deep Christian faith. He spent many hours working with local outreach ministries in Oklahoma City, feeding and clothing and caring for the homeless.

Throughout his life JP worked as a truck driver, salesman, stock broker, a maintenance man, a mechanic, and a small business owner. In 2004 he retired from Yukon, OK Public Schools, and relocated to Bryan, TX to spend time with his oldest son and his family.  In 2007 he moved to Savannah, GA.

JP was an avid golfer and nothing made him happier than to tee it up with family or friends. He was well known at local public golf courses and fostered close friendships with many he met at Lake Heffner Golf Course, Texas A&M Golf Course, and Bacon Park Golf Course. He was a kind and generous man, a man of simple values who was decent and honest. He was a friend to everyone who met him and never saw anything in anyone except their very best.

He is survived by his sister, Joy Quirk of Irving, TX; two sons and their wives, Pat and Jen Armstrong of Bryan, TX, and Robert and Jennifer Armstrong of Savannah, GA; four grandchildren, PJ Armstrong and Mary Maynor of Bryan, TX, and Connor Armstrong and Sarah Armstrong of Savannah, GA; and 3 great-grandchildren, Rafe Maynor, Emma Maynor, and Oliver Armstrong all of Bryan, TX.

The family will hold separate memorial services in Savannah, GA and Bryan, TX. The family asks that instead of flowers, please make a donation to Hospice Savannah in his remembrance.
