Paul M. Savchick of Eaton, N.H., died suddenly of heart failure on Sunday, Nov. 24, 2019, at the age of 74.

Paul M. Savchick

He was born Feb. 26, 1945, and spent his childhood in Milan and Berlin, N.H. Paul went to school in Oregon, and earned his degree in forestry.

After that, he returned to New Hampshire and worked for the U.S. Forest Service and the Kennett Corporation before opening his own consulting firm, Natural Resource Consultants, 26 years ago.

He loved the outdoors, particularly canoeing, fishing and hunting. Paul was very community-minded, serving as a selectman in Albany, and on the Conservation Committee and the planning board in Eaton.

Paul was often mistaken for Santa Claus due to his burly physique and white beard. This was appropriate since he had a very kind-hearted nature and enjoyed helping others.

Paul was predeceased by his brother Michael Savchick and survived by his brother Dimitri Savchick; his partner and best friend of 30 years, Barbara Boxer; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
