Pat Edward Cavness

Pat Edward Cavness walked this earth for 75 years and four months, leaving behind much larger footprints than his size 10 shoes would suggest. The youngest of three children born to Damon Edward (“Bill”) Cavness and Bernice Parisher Cavness, Pat grew up in the small town of Cherokee, Texas, collecting a variety of life experiences that shaped the man he became. Cherokee was (and still is) a small town in San Saba County. All twelve grades of the school were housed in one building. Pat’s kids didn’t know he was joking when he bragged about graduating third in his class, until they found out there were only five students in his entire grade. Small as the Cherokee high school was, they played 11-man football when Pat was in school, and he played center — all 125 pounds of him. After graduating from high school in 1961, Pat moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas at Austin (UT), forming a lifelong attachment to his beloved Longhorns.
