David F. Savage, 66, of Bay City, our devoted husband, dad, grandpa, brother, uncle, and friend passed away on Monday, December 3, 2018 in Detroit. Dave was born in Bay City on September 21, 1952, the son of the late Felix and Ruth (Lytle) Savage. On December 17, 1988, Dave was united in marriage to the former Karen Silvey. Dave worked as a supervisor for many years at Means Industries – Saginaw Metal Stamping and was known for his love of football (especially the Pittsburgh Steelers), fishing, camping, traveling, and classic cars (especially his 1966 Thunderbird).
