We will miss your phone calls. Always joking and bringing joy to our family. We have wonderful memories of the time we spent with you and your family. Harold's memories of the early times have comforted him.

John was one of the most cheerful people I knew. If it was his week to be a greeter at church, you were in for a very warm welcome. And that went for our kids as well. He was a pilot's pilot for sure. I had the privilege of being his passenger a couple of times.
Williams Family left a message on October 6, 2018:
Condolences to the Savage family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, "heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds." May God bring you comfort and peace.

John was a great guy and good friend to my father (Larry Bull). John would hit me up every Sunday and tell me that dad still owed him a nickel from years earlier and he was there to collect. A couple times I jokingly pulled out some pocket change and went to hand it over and he would say, “no, I want his nickel, not yours”. Always fun to be around and he’ll be missed.

I will always remember my birthday flight with John in his vintage Beechcraft Bonanza. He will forever have a special place in my heart and memory, and will be greatly missed! Our thoughts and prayers are with Nancy and the rest of the family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I have good memories of our time together at Central Bible College after we completed our military service. It was a pleasure and honor to share time with him. Bonnie & I send our sympathy to his family and pray that warm memories will bring a measure of comfort to them until they are reunited. Fred C. Lawley Jr.

John you were a friend and a wonderful Christian man. Always loved working on the plane with/for you so many years ago. A fantastic pilot and servant of the Lord. You will be missed. Your great sense of humor was enjoyed by many. May the Lord be with your family.
