Mount Pleasant, TX, June 3, 2022 – The City of Mount Pleasant dedicated a new bridge at the Mount Pleasant Country Club in remembrance of Philip “Pat” Sisk during a ceremony held on Friday, May 27 at the club. Mr. Sisk was an involved citizen who passed away in August 2021.
“While Memorial Day signals the beginning of summer with backyard barbecues, pool parties, lake outings and golf tournaments, the true purpose of Memorial Day is to remember and honor those who have passed,” Mayor Tracy Craig Sr. said to members of the Sisk family and country club who were in attendance. “I can’t think of a more meaningful way to begin our Memorial Day weekend in our own City than this gathering to pay our due respects to Mr. Philip “Pat” Sisk.”
Mayor Craig continued to say, “this new bridge represents an improvement, a bettering within our community, which Pat was to Mount Pleasant. He made our community better and was always looking for improvement from his perspective as an involved citizen, businessman, passionate member of this country club, and beloved husband, father, and grandfather.”
The owner of Sisk Motors, Inc., Mr. Sisk, and his wife, Suzanne, moved to Mount Pleasant in 1972 following his career as a college athlete playing football and baseball player at Baylor University and as a semi-pro baseball player with the Kansas City A’s.

Pat was also a Mount Pleasant Booster Club member and a big supporter of MPISD athletics.
