Noah Savant

Obituary of Noah Valcour Savant

Noah V. Savant ended his earthly journey surrounded by those who loved him on Saturday June 4th, 2022. Noah was born on October 1st, 1944 to Noah and Elsie Savant in Lake Charles, LA. He graduated from Iowa High School where he lettered in basketball. He began attending McNeese State University but left his junior year to go to work for South Central Bell. Noah worked for South Central Bell for 30 years. In 1965 he joined Communication Workers of America (CWA) Local 3407. He quickly became an effective organizer and was eventually elected president of Local 3407. In 1987 he was appointed to the CWA staff. In 1996 he was named assistant to the president. In 2005, Noah was elected District 3 vice president. He served as vice president until his retirement in 2009. During his career Noah served on many committees and boards. Noah was a fierce negotiator. But away from the bargaining table, many of those on both sides of the tableconsidered Noah a great friend. His ability to bring both sides together was one of his greatest attributes. Workers from many industries benefitted from the skills that Noah exhibited during negotiations. Helping others was always a part of who Noah was. Noah was proud of his Louisiana roots. If you were lucky, you were treated to his red beans and rice. As he liked to say, “I’m a Tiger on Saturday and a Saint on Sunday”. He was a natural storyteller and was known for his quick wit. Although he had not lived in Louisiana for many years, he always had a special gleam in his eyes when he spoke about his beloved state. Noah was preceded in death by his parents, Noah and Elsie Savant. He was also preceded by his brother, Tommy Savant. He is survived by his loving wife of 14 years, Dorthy Savant. His sister, Nona Savant of Lake Charles, LA. His son Greg Savant of Pearland, TX and daughter Angela Davis and husband Sean of Katy, TX. Step-children Hayley Duncan and husband Shaun of Chattanooga, TN and Gabriel Graham and wife Taylor of Nashville, TN. Noah loved his grandchildren. Those left to cherish his memory are Zachary and Garrett Savant of Pearland, TX. Sean and Alexandra Davis of Katy, TX. Piper and Rio Duncan of Chattanooga, TN. If a man is measured by the number of people he loved and helped during his life, then we lost a giant of a man with Noah’s passing. Many people knew his nickname “Big Scary”, but those who loved him most called him husband, brother, dad and Paw Paw. At Noah’s request, no services are planned, but a remembrance gathering of family and friends is being considered for a later date TBA.
