Thomas "Tom" Stanley Savage

Tom resided in the same house he grew up in as a kid in Lake Villa. He remained single and enjoyed many types of auto racing and working on his classic Corvette. Tom attended Purdue University and got an engineering degree. After college, he spent 30 years working in the carpet industry. Due to the slowdown in the housing industry in 2008, he decided to retired in January of 2010.

Unfortunately, Tom passed away suddenly of a heart problem in the early morning hours of February 12th, 2017.

Comments from Rick Pasturczak; Tom and I had been friends since 5th grade. He stood up at my wedding and was god father to my son. We doubled dated in high school, went on many ski trips together, and attended many Formula 1 and Indy Car races. Some may have thought he was nerdy because he was a straight A student in high school, but he was far from that once you knew him. He spent much of his time in his last years visiting his nieces, nephews, and sisters who lived in TX and CO. RIP bud.
