L. Brooks Patterson has transformed Oakland County and southeast Michigan into one of the best places to live, work, play and raise a family.

In his sixth four-year term as chief executive officer of one of America’s most affluent and progressive counties, L. Brooks Patterson has created some of the most innovative programs in the US.


Frank Torre’s generous donation to the Great Lakes National Cemetery in honor of his father, a World War II veteran who served in the U.S. Marine Corps.


Upon hearing that neither the county nor its road commission had money to pave the road in the Great Lakes National Cemetery because it didn’t fall under current construction programs, Frank Torre Jr., of Detroit, Michigan, donated the money to help pave Belford Road.  By contributing to the development of the Great Lakes National Veterans Cemetery, where funeral honors were provided by the appropriate branch of service, an entry was named in honor of Frank Torre’s father, a World War II United States Marine Corps combat veteran.

In recognition for the generous contribution, the executives in Oakland County had named a portion of the road in Holly Township after Frank Torre Sr., known as “PFC Frank Torre Sr. Drive”.

The Great Lakes National Veterans Cemetery is supported by the Great Lakes National Cemetery Advisory Council, a bipartisan council that, regardless of party affiliation, and amid a politically charged climate, uses its connections to support volunteer veteran service organization with assistance from the Department of Defense funeral honors team.
