brian sauvageau
Brian Daniel Sauvageau, 60, passed away December 13, 2019. He died peacefully at his home while under Hospice care. Brian was born March 31, 1959, in Fargo ND to Patrick and Germaine Sauvageau, the youngest of six children. Brian lived in Fargo his entire life, as a child he attended “Harbor” school in Moorhead MN. And “Woodrow Wilson” school in Fargo ND. Since May of 1985 Brian lived and worked in the “CHI Friendship” organization, most recently at Windwood and Voc Hab. Throughout his time with “CHI Friendship” Brain was loved and wonderfully cared for by the staff, they (the staff and residents) were his real family. About 15 years ago Brian was diagnosed with Lymphoma and finally succumbed to the disease December 13. Brian was a quiet, gentle, and childlike little guy who loved going to McDonalds (cheeseburgers), Halloween, super heroes, Tae Kwon Do, and spending time with his little dog “Missy”. Brian could often be found sharing hugs with a smile on his face and a “yeah, sure” for everyone he came in contact with. Brian will be greatly missed by all who knew him and there is little doubt that Brian has been welcomed home by his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ just in time for Christmas. Brian is survived by his brothers; William (Sharon) Sauvageau, Fargo ND; Michael (Antje) Sauvageau, Germany; Donald (Sandie) Sauvageau, Fargo ND; Gregory (Rachelle) Sauvageau, Fargo ND; and twelve Nieces and Nephews. Brian was preceded in death by his mother, father, and Brother Richard Sauvageau.
