Obituary for Thomas P. Canavan

Mr. Thomas (Tom) Patrick Canavan died unexpectedly in Blue Island, Illinois on August 13, 2015 at the age of 49.

Tom is survived by his daughters Caitlyn (Bruce) Stockl , Kierstin Canavan, and Annie Canavan; his parents, James and MaryAnn (nee McDonough) Canavan; his siblings, Linda (Matthew) Hillgard, Colleen (Peter) Mulchrone , Daniel Canavan, James (Colleen) Canavan , and Terry Canavan; his many nieces and nephews, and countless lifelong friends.

Tom was born on June 22, 1966 in Chicago, Illinois. He attended St. Denis grade school, where he played football, and later graduated from Bogan High School '84. Tom studied to become an electrician and worked for the IBEW Local 134. In his free time, Tom enjoyed spending time with his daughters exploring nature at the local parks, forest preserve, and the Little Red Schoolhouse, playing sports- especially rugby for the Southside Irish team in Chicago- and listening to Rock 'n Roll music. Tom also suffered from addiction, a disease he struggled with for many years. While he was unable to overcome that battle, he was a fierce and persistent fighter who lived every day of his life as fully as he could. Tom is fondly remembered by his great sense of humor, quick wit, passion for adventure, and insatiable curiosity.

A memorial service is scheduled from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. until time of service on Sunday August 30 at Sheehy Funeral Home in Orland Park, Illinois. Deacon Bill Lubben will officiate the service. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Tom’s life.
