Obituary of Chad Savage

Lifelong resident Chad Savage passed away on December 18, 2021 after an extended illness at Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake. Chad was born in Mercy General Hospital on November 29, 1969. Chad was 52. He is survived by his parents Michael Savage and Valerie Sparks, both lifelong residents of this village. He has one son, Hunter Michael Savage. He also has two siblings, Michael Savage of Queensbury and Darrell Savage of this village. He is also survived by his long time significant other Traci Goff-Sanford and her children Easton and Wyatt Sanford. Chad has numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins from all over the U.S. Chad loved the outdoors and made his living there for all his life. He could not stand an indoor job and in recent years worked for Mitchell logging as a heavy equipment operator, mostly skidders, but he could run pretty much anything. His love of the outdoors carried over to his leisure time which involved fishing, hunting, and shooting sports. Chad loved a fresh snow so he could get on a buck track and follow it until he finally killed it, a skill that he had become very good at. He also loved raising chickens and in later years pigs to feed the family. He was knowledgeable on many outdoor subjects such as wildlife identification and behaviors. He will be missed by many friends and relatives from all over the country. They will miss the twinkle in his eye, his quick wit, and comebacks he was noted for. At the family’s request, there will be no services but a “celebration of life” will be held at a later date in 2022 to honor him and will be announced. Donations should be made to St. Jude or Shriners in his name.
