SAVARY, KENNETH C. "KEN" A native of San Diego, CA for 69 years, passed away peacefully at home on Friday, November 2, 2012. He is survived by his loving wife Sandra, daughter Robbin, son Jeffrey and two grandchildren, three nephews and a niece. He is a graduate of Crawford High School, where he met his childhood sweetheart and best friend; they just celebrated 47 years of marriage. They share a love of car rallies, classic automobiles, hockey, being outdoors and family. His father was a shipbuilder and carpenter who often brought him along to teach him his trade, including working on several famous sailing vessels which lead to his love of the ocean. He served with the Army National Guard for six years. Having worked for Safeway / Vons for 40 years, he began his career as a box boy and working his way up through all the departments in the store, became the youngest store manager. Over the years he created a family-type environment for all who worked with him, no one ever called him "Boss". He attended East San Diego Masonic Lodge No. 561. Baja California, Mexico was his second home where all family vacations were spent. This is where he shared his love of the ocean with his children, teaching them water sports. When he retired they would all travel the length of the peninsula camping, whale watching, fishing, Baja truck races and enjoying the beaches. He has many friends and an adopted family, including five godchildren, in Estero Beach Mexico. Anyone who knew him loved him, and he will be greatly missed by each of them. Visitation will be held on Sunday, November 11, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Funeral services are on Monday, November 12, at noon. El Camino Memorial Park, 5600 Carroll Canyon Rd., San Diego, CA 92121.
