Anthony Kirk Ravelli

August 17, 1989January 11, 2020

Anthony Kirk Ravelli, 30, passed away on Saturday, January 11, 2020. He was the first born to George and Andrea Ravelli on August 17, 1989.

Anthony attended Immaculate Conception School where he met his lifelong group of friends. During his childhood, he enjoyed playing soccer, camping with his family and especially enjoyed playing pranks on his three little sisters. Later, Anthony attended Carroll High School where he loved participating in Spirit Week, Friday Night Football games and school dances. His favorite hobbies included running track, watching and collecting all genres of movies, doting over his dogs, and still playing pranks on his sisters. Anthony was also a proud ambassador for Dayton Children’s Hospital.

As an adult Anthony looked forward to tailgating in Columbus. He loved listening to The Danger Brothers Band and watching The Ohio State University Buckeye games (O-H!). Anthony faced multiple challenges throughout his life but never let those challenges deter him or fade his positive spirit. He was a selfless, one-of-a-kind person that did small acts of kindness on a daily basis. For anyone that was lucky enough to know Anthony, knew that he was the type of friend that you could always rely on. He held no grudges. Anthony’s father, George, was his absolute best friend and role model in life. Our lives are forever changed without Anthony. We will always honor his love for us. Anthony will live on in our hearts forever!

Anthony is the brother to Hannah (Zach) Stewart, Emilee (Nick) Thomas and Georgie (Brook Horner) Ravelli. Also, the proud Uncle to Clara Ann Stewart and Baby Stewart on the way. He is proceeded in death by his grandparents John and Shirley Hannan and Ray and Virginia Ravelli. They now hold him in their arms. A memorial service will begin at 10:00 A.M. on Thursday, January 16, 2020 at Holy Trinity Church 272 Bainbridge St, Dayton, Ohio 45402.

My deepest sympathy to you on the loss of your dear Anthony. I have been praying for George and the entire family. I went to Beloit Elementary with George and all the way through at West Branch. My heart aches for you. I just wanted to let George know that Mike and I will keep you all in our prayers for the days ahead. Judging from what I’ve seen on Facebook, you raised a wonderful, fun loving son who was and is loved by so many! He’s now safe in the arms of Jesus. Blessings on you.

I have wonderful memories of teaching all of your kids in pre-school.We had such fun! I also remember the day you came in to say you were pregnant with the girls! You were a bit overwhelmed and so cute that day! What wonderful parents you and George are!
God bless you all!

I have been fortunate enough to know Anthony when he was around 10 months old. We became neighbors. He was such a sweet boy and grew up to be a wonderful young man. He loved to make people laugh and smile, and always managed to make me do both. There are so many memories I have of Anthony and his sisters. I have always looked back at them and smiled. I am devastated to hear the news of his passing. Rest easy Anthony and I know you're watching over everyone.

I was disabled and I was just hanging out in my living room. He came in to check on me and ended up watching the Reds game with me. I was so happy for his company. He has always been helpful and ready to do whatever we needed in the neighborhood. He has been a great person even when he teased my girls and all his hyjinx in the neighborhood. We will miss him greatly. RIP Anthony. We love you.
