John William Savage

John William Savage, 63, of Centerville went home to be with Jesus on Aug. 30, 2016 in Crescent City, Calif. surrounded by his family. He was born Aug. 25, 1953 in Louisville, KY to Charles "Bill" William Savage and Edith "Dee" Delores Savage of Centerville.

He is survived by his sisters Sharon and Ed Wilkinson of Minden, Nev .; Janice and Larry Gibson of Crescent City, Calif .; and Patti and Kelly Bowcutt of Roosevelt. His children included two daughters, Amy and Rich Allen of McCleary; Peggy and Dave Curtis of Seattle; and two sons, John Savage of Rochester, Wash. and William Savage and Ashley Meyer of Bella Vista, Calif.

He shared his life with five grandchildren, Joel Kaech of Seattle; Michael Schweitzer of Salem, Ore .; Brittany Corder of Vancouver, Wash .; Grace Savage of The Dalles; and Nathan Savage of The Dalles, including three great grandchildren, Sylas Vonslomski of Vancouver, Wash. , Noah Kaech of Lacey, Wash., and Bryson Corder of Vancouver, Wash.

John was a truck driver and a painter during his professional career. In his early years he traveled the country painting with his father Bill. Before long, he took to the open road exploring the country in the seat of an eighteen wheeler. John was a traveling soul, always sharing his laughter and his love for Jesus wherever he went. His smile would brighten up a room and make you feel so very special. He was loved very much and will be missed by many.

He will rest near his Mother and Father in the Centerville Cemetery. A family memorial will be held at The Savage Home, 375 Enyeart Road, Centerville, on Oct. 1, 2016 to honor him and his life. All friends and family are welcome to attend.
