David Savoyard

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our loved one, David Savoyard. Family was by his side when he peacefully passed on.

David was born in 1967 to parents David Chicago and Mary Savoyard in Kenora, Ontario. 

David was predeceased by his father; David Chicago and his mother Mary Savoyard,  grandfathers Frank Chicago and John Savoyard, grandmothers Mary Boucher and Dorothy Sniki and stepmother Arlene Seymour, uncles; Charlie Chicago, Raymond, Billy, Fraser and William Boucher, William Savoyard and Allan McDonald, aunties; Annie Boucher, Pearl and Harriet Chicago, Daisy Paishk, Cecilia Land, Marjorie Mandamin, Alice Savoyard, and Irene Kirkup, sisters Lizette and Wanda Savoyard.

Left to mourn his passing his only child, his son, Kyle, and his partner Rosalind Paypom, uncle; Norman Boucher Aunties; Evelyn Boucher (Gary), Marlene Bryant (Dean) and Agnes McDonald, brothers; Tony Mandamin (Brenda), Trevor Savoyard, David Chicago Jr (Amanda), sisters; Lisa Savoyard and Sammantha Chicago, nephews; Skylar, Brandon and Alexander, Dylan, Denver and Dawson, Atticus, nieces; Morgan and Creedance, Brianna, Kaylie and Abrielle, Summer, Shiyann, Rhaya and Clairen and many many cousins too many to mention, as well as his fur-babies Puppy and Monster.

David was very protective of his family and close friends. He had a very meticulous nature about him where things had to be just right and was a quiet person until he warmed up to you. He was also a jokester, there’d be times where you put your shoes on only to find a potato in your shoe, he was funny that way. In his youth he was obsessed with jets and pretended he was a pilot flying his jets with perfect take-offs and landings. David also played hockey in his teen years for his school league. He enjoyed playing Cribbage and Scrabble as well and enjoyed listening to music. David also enjoyed the splendours of the day sitting outside taking in the sights and sounds of nature, and posted these insights and pictures to his social media. In the last couple years of his life his health had become unsteady where his mobility was slow but he tried to be upbeat and positive, some days were good and some days were bad. He stayed home a lot until he felt strong enough to venture out on his own with his partner to do shopping. His son was his pride and joy, although they didn’t see each other as often as he would’ve wanted to he had nothing but love for him talking about him proudly when anyone asked about him. David leaves his worldy presence to be with his beloved mother Mary and others who passed on before him. 

The family would like to thank the nurses in ICU at LOTWDH for taking care of him in his final hours and to the nurses in the Dialysis Dept. and to his Thunder Bay Team, and a special thank you to Brown Funeral Home & Cremation Centre for their professionalism and compassion during this difficult time and to Pastor Frank Kowal officiating.
