Francis Joseph Kilravey (Frank) was born in Belleville, Ontario to Matthew Kilravey and Margaret Kilravey (née Garvin). Frank was predeceased by his parents and his sister Ann Delano (née Kilravey). Frank is survived by his wife of 45 years, Mary Ann Kilravey (née Paradis) of Rothesay, NB, his sons Matthew Kilravey of Westmount, QC, and Lucas Kilravey (Ilter Ibrahimof) of New York, NY, and many brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and cousins.
Frank was an avid and lifelong reader and advocate for literacy. His love for dogs and the full breadth of 20th century American music coloured his life and will be remembered.
The family would appreciate privacy at this time. A celebration of life will follow in due course.
