FRANCIS PATRICK DURANT, age 69, of University Heights, Ohio, passed away peacefully at his home on January 21, 2019 surrounded by his family, after a three-and-a-half-year battle with cancer. Patrick is preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Rose Durant (nee Persiano). He is survived by his devoted wife, Karen Durant (nee Rocco) with whom he cherished forty-four years of marriage; his three loving children, Francis Patrick Jr. (Shauna), Matthew Francis (Jennifer), Mary Claire; and his beloved granddaughter, Katy Rose. Patrick was born May 30, 1949 and grew up in Cleveland Heights. He attended Saint Ann’s School. After graduating from Saint Joseph Prep in Bardstown, Kentucky, he went on to Saint Louis University where he graduated in 1971. His competitive nature and enthusiasm for business led him to many successful careers in sales, the last being as Director of Sales at The Reserve Network until he retired in 2016. Most of all, he was devoted to his family. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations in memory of Patrick to Hospice of the Western Reserve, P.O. Box 72101, Cleveland, OH 44192.
