Arthur “Art” Ferrell Savage, 70, passed away on May 6, 2022. He was born on Feb. 6, 1952, to Ferrell and Jean Savage in McNary, Arizona. He lived in the White Mountains, later moved to Cutter, Arizona and graduated from Globe High School in 1970.
In 1972, he married Debi Lofgreen. They had two sons, Darrell and Darren.
Art worked as a blade operator for Western Pine Sales in Cutter, drove a truck for Nackard and worked for Inspiration Mine. In 2011, he excitedly retired from Freeport McMoRan; he was happy to be able to do whatever he wanted to do, and he did!
Art was a loving husband and father who kept everyone on their toes with his ornery but caring personality. Art was not one for large crowds but was happiest outdoors and surrounded by his family and very close friends. He loved to hunt, fish and be outdoors. His fun-loving easy-going nature will be missed but will live on in his boys and grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his father, Arthur Ferrell Savage. He is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Debi Savage; his sweet mother Norma “Jean” Savage; sister Veneta “Neta” Savage; sister-in-law Sandi Richardson; two sons Darrell (Terpa) Savage and Darren (Kim) Savage; six grandchildren, Terra, Stratton and Porter Savage, and Toby, Tyler and Trenton Savage; and several extended family members.
A memorial service was held Saturday, May 14 at 10 a.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
