Walter Kinsella 08.02.1900 (119 years old)
Happy Birthday Walter Kinsella (8/16/1900). R.I.P. Portrayed role of Pat Patton in the "Dick Tracy" radio show (1934-48). Pat Patton was the original partner of Dick Tracy when Tracy first started on the city police force. He had light hair and small, dark eyes. Pat claimed to have lived in Peoria at some point in his youth, and mentioned an attempt to run away from home when he was 12 years old. Before becoming a policeman, he had been a steel worker/welder. In the early days of his career as a police officer, Pat was not especially adept, often making blunders and saying "I'm not cut out for this kind of work". However, his persistence and dedication made him an asset to the force.
