RIP Paul Savage

The Desert Sun
October 2, 2014
Paul Savage passed away Sept. 17, 2014, in La Quinta, California, at the age of 89 surrounded by his family. Born Sept. 2, 1925, in Warren, Ohio, and raised in Amsterdam, New York, Paul was a Marine who earned a Purple Heart at the battle of Iwo Jima. He was an actor turned screenwriter and wrote professionally for 35 years, contributing 100-plus hours of credits, spanning series from "Laramie" to "Murder, She Wrote" and winning a WGA Award for his work on "Gunsmoke," where he spent many years and served as executive story consultant. He was most proud of his family and he deeply loved his wife of 51 years, Laurie. They raised three children together in Santa Monica, California - Tracey, Chad and Clay - before moving to La Quinta in 1991, where they found great joy in their grandchildren Katherine, Carolyn, Harper, Sawyer, Holden and Dylan. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend and is missed immeasurably.
