John Paul Sauvie
In loving memory...
John Paul Sauvie, age 67, of Winter Park, Florida passed away Monday, November 14, 2022, at Savannah Cove of Maitland. He was born on October 22, 1955, in Saginaw, Michigan.
John can be summed up as a man with a big heart that was full of love. He was a man that dedicated his life to his faith and his wife, Sandra Kay Sauvie, along the way he worshipped at Saint Joseph Catholic (Saginaw, MI), Michigan Avenue Baptist Church (Saginaw, MI), New Life Church (Saginaw, Mi), and most recently after relocating to Florida Aloma Church (Winter Park, FL). John grew up in his childhood home and lived there for most of his life. After getting married they built their life together and decided to relocate to Florida on May 29, 2021, John had never been out of Michigan and never really traveled. In the last year of his life, he was able to see the ocean, over 7 states, SeaWorld, and so much more. John really liked to spend time with his stepdaughter Shawna watching Varsity Blues, spending time walking and talking to his Cheyenne, experiencing new and interesting places with his niece Christy, Jeramia, and most of all spending his days with his wife, Sandra. John could sit there for hours watching the water and the amazing lizards all around Florida.
John is survived by his wife Sandra of 18 years; stepdaughter Shawna (Gordon); brother, Paul Sauvie; grandchildren, Avery and Emberlyn; nephews, Gabriel Sauvie and Woodrow J.J. Sauvie Jr.; nieces, Diane and Penny Sauvie; and many extended family.
He is preceded in death by his father, Basil Napoleon Sauvie; mother, Mary Angeline Sauvie; brother, Woodrow J.J. Sauvie Jr.; like a big brother, Teddy Heinz; and nephew, Daniel Sauvie.
A celebration of his life is planned for November 22, 2022 at Aloma Church from 5 pm to 7 pm.
