Michael Terence Savisky
It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Michael Terence Savisky, known to all as ”Terry”. He is survived by his loving wife of 39 years, Rory “Tula” Savisky, his children Zoe, Cody (Amanda) and Thya, his grandchildren Kaitlyn, Levi, Alexei and Katya, his sister Helen (Larry) Savisky-Ballion and her children Stephanie (Brett) and Michael, as well as extended family and loving friends. Terry was predeceased by both his father, Michael, and his mother, Mary.
Terry was born in 1951 in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and was raised primarily in Saskatoon and Chilliwack, where he met his wife. They made their way to Fort Nelson, BC, where in 1973 he developed a close relationship with his Creator and was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. He lived throughout the Kootenay’s for many years, in New Denver and Revelstoke, before their family moved to Ecuador for 9 years. They spent several years in Revelstoke before recently relocating to Clearwater, BC.
Terry touched all of us very deeply and he was known by all who met him to be a warm, kind and generous man. He loved trying new foods and if he stayed at your home a familiar site was his head in the fridge looking to see what you had. He loved nature and hiking and music. A familiar sound was him playing his guitar and singing. He devoted his life to other people, and you knew if you needed him at any time of the day, rain, snow or shine, he would be there with a hug and a smile. We all loved him as much as he loved us, but no one more so than his wife. They spent much time together hiking, canoeing, visiting friends from all over and telling others about their hope for the future from the Bible.
A Memorial Service for Terry will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 6th, 2012 at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 270 Leigh Road, Kamloops, BC.
