Alfred Savelis, 97, passed away on Monday, October 7, 2019 at the Fort Hudson Nursing Home.

Born on July 16, 1922, in Lithuania, he was the son of the late William and Anna “Ona” (Zvikas) Savelis.

Alfred attended school in Fort Miller for 7 ½ years and then attended Schuylerville High in 1941 and graduated as the class Salutatorian. Following graduation, he proudly served in the United States Marines during WWII. He participated in the task force for the invasion of Guam and held the rank of Sergeant.

Upon his return after World War II, Alfred worked for G.E. Lab and retired after 18 years. After he retired from G.E. he obtained his brokers license for insurance and real estate and joined the firm of Fort Edward Associates. In 1974 he joined the N.Y. State Department of Transportation Waterway Division Canals where he was an electrician and retired as a supervisor in 1987. He was a member of St. Joseph’s Church, National Rifle Association, American Legion, VFW and the Marine Corp League.

Al lived a life with dignity, character and class. He was a devoted husband, a loving, understanding and caring father and grandfather.
