Details for Fred B. Savage
Early Sunday morning on the 28th of July, 2019, Fred Bruce Savage or, to those who knew him, 'Bud', slipped the bonds of earthly life after a short but exacting battle with lung cancer. Born on July 19, 1930, Bud's time on this planet found its expression in a love supreme: of family, service and for the coast and woodlands of Maine.
Bud was born to Margaret Jonah Savage and Fred Byron Savage in Auburn, Maine. He attended Old Town High School and Kent's Hill prep where he excelled in athletics. It was at the latter where he met Natalie Savage, with whom he settled in Hyannis, Cape Cod, and had four children: David, Susan, Steven and Wendy.
Bud served proudly in the US Air Force from 1951 to 1955, where he acquired the life skills that would sustain him through the remainder of his career. He plied his trade working for the Lone Star and Dragon cement companies before joining Commonwealth Electric. In 1999, he left Cape Cod to retire to The Villages in Florida. He was a longtime volunteer for the recently widowed as a grief-share facilitator at the New Covenant Church and in this role, touched many a heart.
He is survived by his partner, Elois Woytovich, his friend and sweetheart from grade school, with whom he reunited following the passing of his second wife Margaret, and leaves his four children, five grandchildren and five great grandchildren as well.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 17, 2019 at 11:00 am at the New Covenant Church in The Villages, FL.
Arrangements entrusted to Beyers Funeral Home and Crematory, Lady Lake, FL.
