Memorial window to General George Patton, by his family who were members of this church....in San Gabriel, Calif.....most likely by Judson Studio, but don't know for sure.

It looks like Willet did this window, according to the following 1957 article (right at the end):

The Willet Facebook page claims the same:

The church website says that their windows are mostly Willet and Judson, but there are supposedly two by Tiffany (which I haven't come across before). It doesn't specifically attribute the Patton window:

If you scroll down forever on the church Facebook Photos page then you eventually get to photos of quite a few of their windows. I'm not convinced the "Tiffany" windows are by Tiffany.
