Born in Somerville in 1942, he was the son of the late Patrick W. and Hannah (Daly) Caven.

Mr. Caven proudly served four years in the United States Air Force and went on to have a successful career of many years as a salesman in the office product industry. His favorite hobby was karate, which he studied for over 25 years, earning a second degree Black Belt. Pat and his wife loved to travel and enjoyed many wonderful vacations.

Mr. Caven is survived by his beloved wife of 55 years, Elizabeth A. (Latanzio) Caven. He is also survived by his two devoted children: Brian P. Caven and his wife Jean of Dover, New Hampshire; and Lisa M. DiCorato and her husband Michael of Lynnfield. He is also survived by his two loving granddaughters Juliana and Adriana; his sister Mary Flood of Marion; and his brother David Caven of Medford. He was predeceased by his brother John Caven.
