Bo-da worked as a warehouseman in the oilfield for over 30 years. He loved rap music, sports, old cars and motorcyles. Bo-da was a man of few words, but always kept you laughing. One of the many things he often called you was a "stupid fool". He was adored by his children and grandchildren. Bo-da was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and brother, who will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
He is survived by wife of 30 years, Tessie Marie Colomb Savoy; son, Taurean Savoy (Brittany); daughters, Crystal Hensley (Micquelon) and Brittany Colomb; grandchildren, Skylar Roberts, Logan Alexander, Amir Webster, Cohen Jackson and Knox Savoy; brothers, Ronald Savoy (Martha), Rodney Savoy (Cheryl), Keith Savoy (Vanessa), Brian Savoy and Walter Mercier (Felica); sisters, Phyllis Jacquet (Aaron), Carmen Hamilton, Renee Savoy, Kasaundra Benjamin (John) and Millicent Guillory (Tommy); and a host of nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Walter Savoy, Sr. and Carmen Rita Kerlegan Savoy; and brothers, Walter J. Savoy, Jr. and David M. Savoy.
The family wishes to thank Hospice of Acadiana for their care and compassion and everyone who took part in giving a helping hand over the last 6 months.
Pellerin Funeral Home (337-332-2111) is in charge of arrangements.
