Andreas (Andy) Savva Obituary, Death – Harry Savva, who was 89 years old at the time of his death on December 1, 2022, passed away calmly surrounded by his family. People will never forget how charitable he was and how deeply he cared for both his family and his friends. Tochni, which is located in Larnaca, Cyprus, is the place where he was born on April 30th, 1933. Unfortunately, both of his parents, Savva Antoniou and Evengina Antoniou, passed away before he was born.
His three siblings were named Antonis, Costas, and Adelphothea respectively. The island of Rhodes in Greece is where Costas continues to make his home. Harry and Angela Loizou have been married for the past 67 years. In Tochni, on October 30, 1955, they exchanged vows, and the union was blessed with three offspring. In search of the “American Dream,” Harry first set foot in these shores in March of 1971. In October of 1971, when they moved in with him here in Ulster County, he was finally in a position to do so. They have remained in the same location ever since then.
The proximity of the Villa Carmella to the central post office made it a popular gathering spot for a large number of residents of the town, even if all they wanted was a cup of coffee and a friendly expression from Harry. His grandchildren will never forget how much love and attention grandpa put into preparing his elaborate breakfasts for them each morning. Because Harry could never forget his roots, he decided to construct a vacation home for his entire family at Tochni, which is located in Cyprus. It offered succeeding generations the ideal connection to times gone by.
He and Angela would spend their summers there, looking forward to visiting with their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, as well as other members of their family, friends, and community. Afternoons were Harry’s favorite time to take a stroll to the local “kafenio,” where he and the other locals would gather to play backgammon and drink coffee. Harry’s life continued to be rich and fulfilling as he traveled frequently between the United States and Cyprus. He always had the same love and affection directed toward him as he directed toward the rest of the world. “Tsiattista,” which can be loosely translated as “poetry dueling,” was a particularly strong suit for Harry.
During the traditional ceremonies that take place in Cyprus before to a wedding, he would write and sing the most exquisite lyrics. He was able to show off his skills at the weddings of all of his children and grandchildren, in addition to other members of his family and close friends. A number of communities in Cyprus were aware of his abilities. He is survived by his wife Angela Savva, his brother Costas Savva, his children Elizabeth “Liz” (Peter) Kyriacou, Louis (Roula) Savva, and Maria (Andreas) Zambas, his grandchildren Christina (Nicholas) Krzywonos, Harry (Stephanie) Savva, Barbara (Demetri) Sassos, Christopher Zambas, and Angela Fiorillo.
