"May the life I've lived speak for me. May your peace come from the joy we've shared.”
Arnold Joseph Savoy, beloved husband, son, nephew, cousin, and friend, left this world at the age of 56 on December 24th, 2020. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, on October 22, 1964, to John and Barbara Savoy, Arnold grew up in Avondale, where he graduated from John Ehret High School. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Accounting from Holy Cross College. Arnold retired from the Bank of Louisiana as a Credit Collection Manager. On June 25, 1994, he married Terese Simmons.
In his past time, he enjoyed watching television and listening to music. He also loved spending time with his service dogs and best friends, Happy and Tigger. If Happy and Tigger were not welcomed somewhere, Arnold felt he was not welcomed there either. Arnold’s greatest love was giving and helping others. He lived his life following the Beatitudes of the Bible and the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy. Arnold was loved by many and will be deeply missed.
Arnold was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Whitney and Mary Elder Washington and Rene Cormier, his paternal grandparents, Clement and Stella Savoy, aunts, Irene Washington Mouton, Anna Mae Jones, and Olena Broussard, uncle, John St. Julien, and godparents, Clifford and Melvina Savoy.
