Franklin James Kilpatrick
Feb. 27, 1962 - June 12, 2014
Resident of Dublin
Franklin James Kilpatrick, passed away peacefully on June 12, 2014 at his home surrounded by his loving family after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born on February 27, 1962 in Orange, New Jersey to the late Beverly and Frank Kilpatrick. However, California is where he called his home of 40 years.
Frank enjoyed a very successful career as a technology executive during his 31 year career in systems engineering. He was well respected, admired and held in high regard for his knowledge and experience. During Frank's career, he inspired and mentored many colleagues. Seeing the career advancement of these individuals, was one of Frank's highest personal rewards in business.
Though known to Siri as Rock God, Frank will be remembered by his charisma, his trade-mark sense of humor and quick wit. He had a talent to light up a room with his presence and make those around him laugh. Though his life was short, it was well lived. Frank had a passion for knowledge and current events, all things sports though football was his favorite, traveled the world, enjoyed fine dining, loved a great game of golf or bocce which he shared with his wife, his truest companion and love.
Frank is survived by his devoted loving wife, Tracy Kilpatrick of 18 years. His caring sister Nancy Hanlon, adoring niece Lauren Hanlon, brother-in-law John, and fond Uncle William Kilpatrick and his wife, Reiko.
At Frank's request, a private celebration of his life will take place this summer in Carmel, California.
In spirit of Frank's fondness for his cats, memorial contributions can be made to Tony Larussa's Animal Rescue Foundation, PO Box 30215, Walnut Creek, CA 94598; 925/256-1273.
