Charles Daniel Savell

Charles “Dan” Savell, 71, of Simpsonville, SC, went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on September 1, 2022. He was born June 3, 1951, in Alamogordo, NM, to James L. and Ina Mae Hardin Savell, and was the oldest of four children. Dan grew up in Wilson, TX, where after graduating from Wilson High School he served our country in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Vietnam conflict. 

After being a long-time resident of West Texas, Dan moved with his wife of 47 years, Marsha T. Savell, to Greenville, SC and Spruce Pine, NC in 2013 to be near their daughter and grandsons.

Dan was preceded in death by his parents James L. and Ina Mae Hardin Savell, son Eric Savell, and brother Richard Savell. Dan is survived by his wife Marsha T. Savell; daughter Angela (Brian) Jones of Simpsonville; brothers David (Beci) Savell and Doug (Renee) Savell of West Texas; and three grandchildren, Caden Jones, Paxton Jones and Kendall Savell. 

The family would like to thank the team at Interim Hospice of the Upstate, especially Nan and Dee, who provided the best of comfort care to our loved one.

A family and friends visitation will be held Tuesday, Sept. 6, 4-7 pm at the home of Angela Jones.

A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, Oct. 22, at Lake Ridge Chapel, 6025 82nd Lubbock, TX. Visitation will be from 9:30 to 11:00 am. The Memorial Service will begin at 11:00 am.

In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial gifts be made to one of the following organizations:

The Gary Sinise Foundation, which helps active-duty military, military veterans, first responders, and their loved ones.

The Lubbock, TX, SPCA,  where Dan adopted his beloved  dog “Rusty” in December, 2018.

    Love this picture! Will miss some of his sarcastic remarks that we weren’t sure if were real or not. He ran the race longer than 3 Pulmonary specialists said he would. I’m not sure if that is stubborness or that he just wanted to be with you all in South Carolina. Probably a little of both. I am truly sorry for your loss. He will be missed!

    We had so many memorable great times , both while in the Corps and after . I will always remember his sense of humor , that infectious laugh that always meant that he was up to something crazy or silly or wildly creative . He could always be counted on to stand with you in the worst of times, and to celebrate the good times at full speed. I will miss his company , his advice and his friendship and I can truthfully say I am proud to have known such a wonderful friend .
    May his family and friends find comfort in the memories of his life and the knowledge that he loved them with all his heart .

    Was realizing tonight he was able to turn a 6 month sentence for death into almost a 10 life in South and North Carolinas with family and doing lots of exploring and traveling as well. God knew what He was doing sending him to visit soon after his diagnosis! I thank God he had the extra time with each of you. My prayers for healing and comfort for each of you now as you go forward without Dan.

    Marsha, Angela, and family, our deepest sympathies to you all. We are so glad you had the extra time to spend and share the love of family with Dan. Though we know a loved one is better now than suffering, the loss is difficult to bear and the memories both comfort and sadden us as we miss their physical presence. God bless you and comfort you as you go forward.

    Jack and I are so very sorry.
    With Dan’s now being not only in the presence of Our Lord, but also with his very beloved son Eric, as well, we’re compassionately grateful that he (Dan) is no longer fighting so hard for each breath but that he can, instead, comfortably “breathe in” ………… ALL of the LoveūüíĖ; ALL of the Joy; and ALL of the Spiritual Peace that simply comes from ………… being in God’s Heavenly Presence, you know.
    ‘Crying with y’all during this hard time of loss.
