Joshua J. Savyon

AMHERST - Joshua Jordan Savyon, of Amherst, born on April 10, 2004, was tragically taken from this world on Aug. 11, 2013.

He was the cherished son of Becky (Kendall) and Benjamin Ranes.

He was the pride and joy of his parents and a delight to those around him. He always had a smile on his face, was eager to try and learn new things and was always available to lend others a helping hand.

Joshua was an avid learner whose untapped potential will never be realized. He had an inquisitive mind and was always trying to invent or build something. In his brief life he earned a black belt in taekwondo and had begun to enjoy tennis, archery, baseball and rock collecting.

He attended the Wilkins Elementary School in Amherst and was eagerly looking forward to starting the fourth grade.

In addition to his parents, he is survived by his maternal grandparents, Karen Kendall of Merrimack and James and Sharon Kendall of Vero Beach, Fla.; his paternal grandmother, Meriam Savyon of Israel; many aunts, uncles and cousins; and his beloved pets.
