Patricia Vaughn-Stumph (mother)

Patrick tells, that he was quite a pampered kid, and his childhood was rather happy until the moment of his parents’ divorce. After that, he resided with his mother in Glenview, IL and missed his dad so much.

Patricia earned her living as an accountant. She joined her work with taking care of three kids. As the ex-wife of a musician, she knew, that her son’s passion for music was real, and she supported him in it. But when her son missed a semester in college to pay with just-made “Fall Out Boy”, she asked him to find a regular job. Instead of it, on the 6th of May in 2003, he released his first song.

Now Patricia Stumph, whose maiden name is Vaughn, is extremely proud of her son!
