REVERE – Former city councilor, school committee member and Revere firefighter Patsy “Pat” W. Tata will be laid to rest Friday morning.
He passed away Jan. 2 at the age of 87. In honor of his service to the city the city council issued a Resolution of Condolence, recognizing his loss.

“He served and guarded the people of Revere,” said Powers.
