Savage, Thomas J.  
Thomas J. Savage "Our Tommy," 52, of Windsor Locks, entered into eternal rest on Sunday, Dec. 21, 2014, at home, surrounded by his loving family and friends following the most courageous battle with cancer. Tom was born on Aug. 3, 1962, in Hartford, the son of Joseph and Bernadette (O'Hanlon) Savage of Windsor Locks, hailing from Warrenpoint, County Down, Northern Ireland. Tom was raised in Windsor Locks before moving to Enfield and then to Somers six years ago. A graduate of Windsor Locks High School, Class of 1980, he went on to receive his bachelor's degree in musical education at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire and earned his master's degree at Central Connecticut State University. Tom was a devoted music teacher at Timothy Edwards Middle School, South Windsor, for 17 years. For the last 30 years he was a founding member and fearless leader of The Savage Brothers Band. He enjoyed, more than anything in this world, spending time with his lovely daughters. Whether enjoying the great outdoors camping, hiking, or biking, traveling to Ireland or making music together, his life simply revolved around his three girls. In addition to his parents, he leaves three incredibly beautiful and talented children, Sarah, Claire, and Kaitlyn Savage and their mother, Kimberly Savage; three brothers, Mark Savage and his wife, Nadia, of Durham, Steven Savage of Windsor Locks, and Michael Savage of Enfield; a sister, Debra Savage of Windsor Locks; a niece Ava Savage; nephew Sean Savage; and more friends than you could possibly imagine, especially his best friend Kevin Moriarty and his wife, Amy. He will also be missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends in Ireland. His family would like to thank all of his doctors, nurses, and staff at St. Francis Cancer Center for all their love and support. We would also like to thank all of the teachers and students at Timothy Edwards Middle School (his TE family) for all of their love and support for Tom, whether it would be concerts in his honor, or Christmas caroling at his home. They are an incredibly caring group of people. Tom was a very lucky man to have them all in his life. Exhibiting the strength and spirit of their father, Sarah, Claire, and Kaitlyn founded the charity fund, "Sing for Savage." While Tom was receiving treatment, the girls donated thousands of dollars to cancer research in his name to St. Francis Cancer Center. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated, on Saturday, Dec. 27, 2014, at 10 a.m. at St. Robert Bellarmine Church, 52 S. Elm St., Windsor Locks. Please meet at the church. Burial will follow at St. Mary Cemetery. His family will receive friends on Friday, Dec. 26, 2014, from 4 to 8 p.m. at Windsor Locks Funeral Home, 441 Spring St., Windsor Locks. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Savage Girls Education Fund, c/o Windsor Locks Federal Credit Union, 516 Spring St., Windsor Locks, CT 06096.
