Many think the real Santa Claus could be an auger truck operator for Dominion Virginia Power. Even without his red suit, Marlin Mo Patrick of Deep Creek is the spitting image of Santa, complete with a bona fide white beard, robust laugh and generous spirit. Patrick finds ways to make a positive difference in the lives of others year round, especially over the holidays. In December, he helped collect a truck load of toys for underprivileged children and provided his services for the Breakfast with Santa at the Broken Egg Bistro. A 29-year veteran at Dominion, he also visits hospitals and nursing homes to spread the spirit of Christmas.
