Patrick Kavanagh, 44, of Wakefield, known to many as "Pat," passed away Tuesday, September 4, 2018.

Patrick graduated from Wakefield High School in 1992 and Mass College of Art in 1996. Patrick was known for his quick wit and artistic flair. He was every retail stockroom manager's dream with his tireless work ethic and keen eye for organization. Those who knew Patrick laughed often and could always expect to tuck in for a well-told story complete with dramatic animation and spot-on impersonations. He loved all things art, movies, music and color. He was a voracious reader, occasional writer, and devoted movie fan.

He was the beloved son of Jean (O'Neill) Kavanagh and the late Ronald Kavanagh. Patrick is survived by his sister, Colleen Getty, and her husband George of Wakefield, MA as well as his brother, Ryan Kavanagh, of Salem, MA. Patrick will be sorely missed by his three adoring nieces, Alice, Clara and Madeline and nephew Charles.

Funeral from the McDonald Funeral Home, 19 Yale Ave., Wakefield on Saturday at 10 a.m. followed by a funeral mass in St. Joseph Church, 173 Albion St., Wakefield at 11 o'clock. Visitation for relatives and friends will be held at the Funeral Home on Friday from 4-7 p.m. Interment, Forest Glade Cemetery Wakefield.

If you would like to honor Patrick—make art and laugh often. Those who knew Pat knew a man who was truly a kid at heart and for that reason we ask that in lieu of flowers you direct any gifts in Patrick's memory to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Stoneham and Wakefield, 15 Dale Court, Stoneham, MA 02180 or
