Here is the obituary for 

KAVANAGH, Arthur (Art)

April 23, 1923 – January 9th 2020


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Art on January 9th, 2020, at the age of 96. Art was born and raised in St. John`s, Newfoundland. While vacationing in Trois Rivieres, he met the love of his life Colette Dolbec. They were married on October 11, 1952, and moved to Montreal. In 1965, they settled in Chateauguay to raise their family. 

Predeceased by his wife Collette (2018). Leaving to mourn are loving daughters Sharon (Giovanni) and Kelly (Scott); Proud Grandad to his cherished grandsons Michael (Leighanne), Matthew, William and Thomas; many nieces and nephews. Art treasured time spent with family, and family gatherings were the highlights of his life. Nothing pleased him more to know that we would all be together creating memories.
