Guy Savelli, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, teacher, friend, and healer passed away December 1, 2020. We are heartbroken and grief stricken, but the prayers, well wishes, kindness, and support from friends and family near and far has been a source of great comfort. Love and blessings to everyone. Due to Covid-19, the family plans to have a private service. In honor of Guy’s lifelong desire to feed the needy, please give a donation to your local food bank in lieu of flowers.

    I want to send my deepest condolences to the Savelli Family. He was a beautiful soul whom I did not get the chance to meet in person, yet altered so much of my life over past 2 decades. Not long ago I emailed him and he responded by wanting to meet in NJ. I will honor request for donation to food bank. May God wrap his soul in eternal peace.

    Please except Pattie and my sincere condolences and prayers during your time of loss. I trained with Mr. Savilli in the seventies in both Cleveland and Painesville. I was a hard luck kid from the east side of Cleveland and I am and will forever be grateful for Mr. Savillies guidance and support during a difficult time in my life. I will never forget him telling me that he teaches students how to fight but that it was far more important to him that he taught us how to live. I will always hold your family and Mr. Savilli in my heart. RIP Mr. Savilli.

    Eternal rest master. You changed my life for the best. I still do my daily meditations as you taught me some 30 plus years ago. My condolences to Diane and the entire Savelli family. His spirit lives on in everyone that came in contact with him.

    I want to send my sincerest condolences. I was a student of Grand Master Savelli at the Cleveland, Ohio dojo from 1973 to 1975 until I enlisted in the US Coast Guard. (I taught the first five free lessons for him. Guy showed me that we are far, far more than what religion, science and government tell us we are. I saw him levitate 360 degrees around a student while demonstrating a move. His feet never once touched the floor until the move was complete – and that only begins all the remarkable things I witnessed. I can never forget him.
