PAUL T. KILCARR Sr.
KILCARR PAUL THOMAS KILCARR, SR. “Paul” (Age 85) Of Williamsburg, Virginia died of natural causes on July 24, 2015.
He was the devoted father of Marianne Kilcarr Umstead, Paul Jr., and Kevin and beloved husband of Regina “Jean” V (Looby) Kilcarr. In addition to his wife and children, he is survived by his Grandchildren Ashley Umstead Brown, Joseph Kilcarr, Lauren Umstead Schmidt and his great grandchild Marlee Brown and his brother John Kilcarr. He was preceded in death by his brother Andrew Kilcarr, his sister-in-law Barbara Kilcarr, and his mother Mary Kilcarr.
Paul and his brothers, Andrew and Jack, graduated from Manhattan College in New York City. Paul took over as head of the family at age 15 when his dad Patrick J. Kilcarr passed from this earth too early in life. His brothers would always remark that “my brother is the one that raised us”.
Upon graduation from school and marriage to the love of his life Jean, Paul pursued his career in defense contracting as an engineer. He and Jean traveled the world having Marianne in Wichita, KS, Paul Jr in Kaiserslauten, Germany and then back to New York for the birth of Kevin. Once back in the US, Paul took a series of defense contracting positions ending his career with Westinghouse.
Paul enjoyed his gardening to the point of being awarded a certificate as a Master Gardener. He loved sharing the bounty of his harvest with all his friends. He was very outgoing and always willing to help a neighbor with anything they were trying to accomplish. A devote Catholic, Paul did some very serious soul searching in his later years and was very content with his next stage in life. In his last days, he was happy and content with moving on to join Andrew and his mother.

I believe that Paul is a member of the Class of 1952, his brother Andy, 1953,
was my classmate and his brother Jack was a member of the Class of 1955.
May He Rest In Peace.
McEneney, Mike (MC1953)
