Condolences to the family of NEIL EDWARD ADAM SAVOIE


SAVOIE, Neil Edward Adam

March 7, 1971 - April 26, 2016

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved son, brother, father, uncle, cousin, and friend Adam Savoie. Adam was born in Canmore Alberta on March 7, 1971 and although he lived all over Alberta, he always called Drumheller home.  He loved the outdoors, camping, and riding his Harley. Adam made his mark in the oil patch at the age of 17, starting out as a lease hand, working his way up the ranks to eventually open his own consulting company. Adam will be joining the
mother of his children Gale Kelly and his precious son Chase in heaven. He will be greatly missed by his daughter Chanteesa Savoie, mother Patricia Savoie, grandmother Ivy Yakel, sisters, Marcie (Ken) Schinnour, and Terina (Greg) Kendell, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces & nephew. Adam was the most fun loving and big hearted person you would ever meet and thoroughly enjoyed making people laugh. He touched many lives in his life and will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered forever.  A celebration of life will be held Saturday, June 11 at the Orkney Hall from 3:00 to 5:00 pm, overnight camping will be available.
