  1. I am so sorry for your loss! Mr Savich was a good man and a hard worker. I remember how much he loved to ride his bicycle in the neighborhood, and on one occasion he avoided crashing into me as I was playing in the street right around a corner where I shouldn’t of been, and he was gracious about it while swerving with ease. May he rest in peace 💜

  2. Mom and I went down to Asheville to visit around this time last year. Aunt Carolyn and Uncle Vic took us to all of the little touristy areas in and around the city, and we had a blast. Another day, we went on an epic hike to the top of this mountain, which is something we just don’t have in Chicago, so I could really feel it! Most memorable of the visit though was when we sat down to dinner and Vic pulls out these silverware sporks to eat with. Hilarious! What a guy. My deepest condolences.

  4. Vic was a good neighbor and came to my aid on more than one occasion. He was helpful without being asked. He will be missed. Rest in Peace, Vic. Terry

  5. Living next to Vic the past eight years, we’ve learned to appreciate the dedication and detail he put into projects around the house. On any given day we could hear the “whirring” of the tablesaw, groan of the lawnmower, or creaking of the swing in the front yard on a beautiful day. To us, it showed the loving care he took of those he treasured and his loving attention to detail. He was truly one of a kind. We pray that God grants you comfort during this difficult time and brings laughter and fondness of the cherished memories you have during his time here with all of us.
