Michael T. Savitsky Obituary
Michael T. Savitsky, Esq., 59, of Glenburn Twp., died Sunday, March 10, 2019, after a long and courageous battle with pancreatic cancer, a disease which he refused to allow to define how he lived.

Born in Minooka, he was the son of the late Joseph S. Savitsky and Helen D. Pedlick Savitsky. He was educated at the University of Scranton and the Duquesne University School of Law. He and his friend and longtime law partner, Zygmunt R. Bialkowski, founded the Scranton law firm of Bialkowski & Savitsky and later joined Margolis Edelstein in 1999.

He will be remembered for his love of family, sense of humor and stubbornness. He loved to travel, and if he "went missing," you could usually find him in the Conch Republic of Key West. He was an avid sports fan and sports memorabilia collector who was passionate about his beloved New York Yankees, New York Jets and Los Angeles Lakers.

He would like to thank the staff at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore and Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton, as well as his doctor, Kenneth Sebastianelli, and his staff, who treated him not just as a patient, but also as a friend.

He was also preceded in death by his wife, Mary Ann Duffy Savitsky; and three brothers, Joey, Paul and John.

Surviving are a son, Shane, Washington, D.C.; daughter, Kathleen and husband, Chris McKeever, Fairfax, Va.; grandchild, Claire Mary McKeever; and his favorite sister, Barbara and husband, Larry Rayburn, Cheyenne, Wyo.

He was blessed to have been reunited with his old friend, Terri Stashik, whose love, support and compassion provided him with the strength to live each day knowing it would not be his last.

The funeral will be at 10 a.m. Saturday with a Mass of Christian Burial in Divine Mercy Parish, 312 Davis St., Scranton.

Friends may call from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday at Eagen-Hughes Funeral Home, 2908 Birney Ave., Scranton.

Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of the Sacred Heart, 600 Baltimore Drive, Wilkes-Barre.
