Cleveland Jean “Slim” Savoy

Published 9:47 pm Saturday, November 28, 2015

Our loving daddy, Cleveland Jean “Slim” Savoy, 91, of Port Arthur went to meet our Heavenly Father on November 25, 2015.

Dad was born January 3, 1924 to the late Desponie and Leta Savoy in Arnaudville, Louisiana.  Dad worked at B.F. Goodrich for 38 years as a carpenter and enjoyed 32 fulfilling years of retirement life.  Dad was a man of many talents which included building approximately 70 houses from the ground up.  He was an avid duck and deer hunter and grew beautiful vegetables and roses in his garden.  The most precious part of Dad’s life was his love for his family and always having something good cooked like his famous gumbo.

Dad was preceded in death by his parents, the love of his life of over 58 years, Genevieve Savoy; his only son, Kenneth Wayne Savoy; sisters, Irene Gaithe; Lorena Fruge and son in law, Curtis Breaux.
