Warren S. Savaria, 60, a lifelong resident of Rochester, passed away Sunday, January 24, 2016, in the presence of his family, encircled in love. He was the son of the late Charles and Constance (Nute) Savaria.
Mr. Savaria was a painter by trade and learned his craft at an early age from his surrogate father, “Big John” Charbonneau and the extended Charbonneau family. In later years he joined the John Eagan Co as a union painter. In the past 40 years, there are few private homes or buildings in the South Coast area and beyond that have not been touched by Warren’s brush.
Warren enjoyed the simple pleasures of life, taking his Labrador, Sheba, on walks through the many local nature trails, watching Judge Judy, keeping up with Mary Worth, gardening and reading the history of local Native American Indians and stories of the old West. But what brought him the most joy was spending time with his family, especially his granddaughters. His legacy will be the many hilarious stories family and friends can remember in an instant that recall times spent with this dear soul. His humor, kindness and devotion to those he loved, will remain a comfort to all those that miss him.
He is survived by his son, Zachary Savaria and partner, Krystina Bartnick and their two children, Kaya and Scarlet Savaria of Rochester; his daughter, Hannah Savaria of Dartmouth, nieces, Joelle Anger and her husband Tom and their son Christian, Aubrey Savaria and her son, Justin, all from Swansea; Lauren Deree and her husband Michael and their sons, Owen and Aiden of Rochester; and a nephew, Nathaniel Corwin and his wife, Bethany from Carver. He also leaves a sister, Patricia Corwin and her husband Sean of Rochester and is predeceased by a brother, Curtis Savaria. Mr. Savaria was once married to Julie (Pineault) Savaria of New Bedford.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Dartmouth VFW, 144 Cross Rd, North Dartmouth on Sunday, February 7, 2016, from 1:00 pm- 4:00 pm. There will be a service conducted by Reverend Kathy Gayoski starting at 1:00 pm.
