Cecil Savage
Jan 14 1935 – Feb 28 2018

Cecil Savage, 83, resident of the Mount Olive/Calypso areas, native of Tarboro, and former, long time resident of Dudley, died early Wednesday morning, Feb. 28, at Lenoir Memorial Hospital. In recent weeks, he had been lovingly cared for at the North Carolina State Veterans Home in Kinston.

He was the son of the late Ellie Savage and Gertrude Williamson Savage, and was raised in part by an older sister, Rachel. He grew up in a farming background and early adulthood found him as a farmer. He served in the United States Air Force, had been a truck driver, and had been employed with Ralph Britt Farms. He attended Garner’s Chapel Baptist Church with his wife for many years. He was an avid fan of golf and baseball, and pretty cars, especially the expensive ones.

He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Betty “Sis” Britt DeLuca, and is survived by her two sons, John DeLuca and wife, Sandy, of Raleigh, and Jim DeLuca and wife, Janna, of Kernersville; four step-grandchildren, Tiffany, Jamie, Cole, and Summer DeLuca; nephew and family who became his adoptive children, Ralph Britt, Jr., wife, Suzanne, and sons, James and Luke, all of Mount Olive; along with several of the Britt siblings and spouses, and nieces and nephews. Also surviving him is a special caregiver who became as a daughter, Teresa Holland of Pink Hill.

Funeral services will be Saturday, March 3, at 11 a.m. at Tyndall Funeral Home with Dr. Greg Day officiating, followed by burial at Wayne Memorial Park. A brief visitation will precede the service, beginning at 10:30 a.m., and afterwards at the cemetery.

Flowers are welcome, or memorial gifts may be made to Garner’s Chapel Baptist Church, c/o Julie Beck, 534 Bell Ave.., Mount Olive NC 28365.
