Harvey Joseph Sauvageau
June 17, 1928 - January 9, 2017
Harvey Joseph Sauvageau passed away on January 9, 2017, in his home surrounded by his family. He was 88 years old.
Harvey was born on June 17, 1928, in Fargo, North Dakota to Gustave and Germaine Sauvageau. He grew up in a small community in Horace, North Dakota with four brothers and five sisters. Harvey married Theresa Cossette in 1949. He worked on the family dairy farm until he moved his family to California in 1960, where he worked for Orange County in the maintenance department applying his carpentry skills. On the weekends, he took on side carpentry jobs to provide for his growing family of ten children. After taking an early retirement from Orange County, he moved his family to Caldwell, Idaho in 1978. Back to the basics of country living, Harvey's dream of building his own home with a large shop on acreage became a reality. After Theresa passed, he married Idafay Holland in 1998.
Harvey was a farmer at heart who loved to garden and drive his tractor any chance he got. Harvey was a great dancer, from polka to country western. He could do a jig like no other. Many family members were blessed with his carpentry skills as he enjoyed working side by side with his children. Harvey loved to camp with his family.
Harvey is survived by his sons: Dennis, David, Darrell and Greg. Daughters: Delores Billings, Shirley Fox, Margie Wright, Karen Mailly and Annette Teraberry. 32 grandchildren, 41 great grandchildren and 8 great-great grandchildren. Harvey was preceded in death by his wife Theresa, son Allen, grandson Curt, and great granddaughter Lexi.
Memorial services will be held on Saturday, January 14th at 11:00 am at the Grace Lutheran Church located at 2700 S. Kimball Ave in Caldwell, Idaho. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be made to Grace Lutheran Church Building Fund, gracelutherancaldwell.org
