Glynn Savage

February 16, 1953 ~ December 29, 2018 (age 65)

Mr. Robert “Glynn” Savage, 65, husband of Genalyn N. Savage and a resident of Accomac, VA, passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 29, 2018 with his loved ones by his side. Born February 16, 1953 in Nassawadox, VA, he was the son of the late John Robert “Bob” Savage and Ina Pruitt Brown and husband Donald Onley “Don” Brown. 

A lifelong commercial waterman, Glynn was ever the fearless adventurer, often fishing solo whether he was in his native bayside and seaside waters or the Frying Pan Shoals of Cape Fear, NC. Though being on the water was his greatest passion, nothing was more important to Glynn than his family.  He loved the Lord and was raised in the New Testament Church in Deep Creek, VA. He will be greatly missed, however, his life will be forever celebrated through the many precious memories he shared with those who knew and loved him.    

In addition to his loving wife of 13 years, he is survived by five children, Cory Glynn Savage and wife Jackie of Greenbackville, VA, Christopher Robert Savage of Point Pleasant Beach, NJ, April Caison and husband Chris of Capeville, VA, Rachel Dawn Savage of Exmore, and Kristina Nicole Savage of Accomac; sisters, Claudia S. Webb and husband Tommy of Jamesville, VA, and Cynthia S. Bradford and husband Bill of Exmore; grandchildren, Everett and Martin Savage, Mariana Donohue, Carson Savage, and Dylan, Emma Grace, and Caroline Caison; as well as his wife’s family in the Philippines and countless friends.  Other than his parents and step-father, he was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Charlie Wes Pruitt and Beulah Evans Pruitt; paternal grandparents, John Robert Savage and Lillian Mears Savage; and numerous cousins.

The family will greet friends at the Williams-Onancock Funeral Home on Saturday, January 5, 2019 at 1:30 p.m., followed by a memorial service at 2:00 p.m.  The Reverend Charles W. Parks III will officiate.
