January 22, 1952 – July 19, 2012
Mike Savage of Calgary passed away on Thursday, July 19, 2012 at the age of 60 years.
Mike was born in Calgary on January 22, 1952, the third son of George and Helen Savage. Mike attended Corpus Christi Elementary, St. Joseph’s and St. Margaret’s Junior High, and St. Francis High Schools. Mike met the love of his life, Judy Wong in his late teens. Mike and Judy were a perfect pair as they loved and supported one another through the many challenges of their lives. Mike was proud to say that he worked for the City of Calgary Roads Department and took pride in his hard work and would just shrug his shoulders at the way in which he weathered the elements and the heavy work. Mike taught us all how to love uniquely and challenged us to become better people… and we all hope we learned these lessons from him.
Mike is survived by his brother David Savage; sister-in-law Linda Savage; sister Corinne Crockett; brother-in-law Tom Crockett; and his nieces, Dawn Marie, Ninette, Stacey, Tami, Amanda, Lisa, and Jennifer. Mike was predeceased by Judy in 2008.
