Phillip Lee Savage

Phillip Lee Savage

October 15, 1964 — August 19, 2018

Phillip Lee Savage, 53, of Marble Falls, Texas, made his last inappropriate and probably sarcastic comment on Aug. 19, 2018, with his family and friends by his side. Phil burst in this world on Oct. 15, 1964, in Hammond, Indiana, to Glenn and Patricia (Courneya) Savage, the fourth of five boys.

Although a less than average life span, Phil did not live an average life. Phil loved a fresh can of Skoal, Zebra Cakes, any flick John Wayne was in, his friends, and Shannon Lea Maksche … and not necessarily in that order. Phil and Shannon have two children, Christopher, born in 1987, and Katelynn, born in 1989.
