Norman Savoie

February 10, 1942 - February 2, 2018

Burial Date February 13, 2018

Norman Savoie was a special and generous man.  His passing on February 2nd, 2018 at his home in Fitchburg, MA was quiet and peaceful surrounded by his family.  He leaves behind his son Kevin Savoie, his wife Jovinatha and their two daughters Chloe and Abigail of Malden Massachusetts. He also leaves behind his daughter Tammy Prentiss, her husband Dean, and their three children James, Maxwell and Miranda Prentiss all of Fitchburg, Massachusetts.

 

Norman was born on February 10th, 1942 in Saint-Maurice, New Brunswick, the son of the late Ernest and Marguerite (Cormier) Savoie.  He was the youngest of ten children who loved being on the family farm and helping out whenever he could. 

 

As grandfather, father or friend, he gave his love and support through actions more than words.  While attending every one of our practices and cheering us on at every game, he was always there for us.  He was always our biggest fan.  He was also the ultimate hockey fan who loved his boys, the Montreal Canadiens but grew to love the Boston Bruins over time.  He gave to us all that he had to give and we loved him for that gift.  He allowed himself to be poked fun of with a level of grace that we all recognized and appreciated.  He was, and will always be, family.

 

We love you, Dad.  We love you, Grandpa.  You will be missed.  May you rest in peace. 

 

Norman Savoie also leaves behind the mother of his children, Joanne Reinschild of Fitchburg, Massachusetts; his brothers, Gerald Savoie of Moncton, New Brunswick & Abel Savoie of Leominster; his sisters, Exelda Goguen of Hartford, Connecticut & Therese Allain of Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick.

 

He was also the brother of the late Laurie Savoie, Aquela Savoie, Eva Maillet, Cecelia Arsenault and Edith Gauvin.

 

 

A gathering in celebration of Norman Savoie’s life will be held on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, at Brandon Funeral Home, 305 Wanoosnoc Road, Fitchburg, MA, from 4-5 pm with a brief service to follow.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions can be made to the “endpolio.org” in memory of Norman Savoie.
