Melvin Savoy Jr. age 56, of Beaumont, Texas, passed away Thursday October 15, 2020. Melvin was born on August 7, 1964 in Beaumont, Texas to Jessie Mae (Lewis) Savoy and Melvin Savoy Sr. One of eleven children, Melvin grew up and has spent his entire life in the Beaumont area. Deeply family oriented and a confirmed mama’s boy, Melvin took a lot of joy in spending time with his family and particularly his grandbabies. A giving man and truly capable of doing anything he set his mind too, Melvin could be depended on to do anything asked of him. Described by those who knew him best as a true “Angel on Earth” he was a joyful man who loved to laugh and was a devoted and loving partner to his beloved fiancée, Susan. Melvin took particular pride in several things in his life; his meticulous attention to his home and personal appearance, his talent as a mechanic who could fix almost anything, and his passionate love of cooking chef-like masterpieces, such as pigs feet and ox tails, for those he loved will certainly not soon be forgotten. Melvin will be truly missed by his fiancée, family, and friends and will always be remembered.
