Kenneth James Savastano, born March 25, 1942, transitioned into heaven on February 18, 2021. He was preceded by his parents, Anthony and Virginia and his siblings Linda Savastano, Anthony (Potch) Savastano, Marie Munch, Jeanette Matranga, Anna Mae Viator and Ernest Joseph Savastano, grandson Harold Edward (Teddy) Owen III, nephew (loved like a brother) Dion Savastano and many nieces and nephews. Ken was happily married for fifty-eight years to Aloma Fox Savastano and was blessed with two daughters and sons-in-law: Virginia Owen (Harold) and Kerrie deVay (Frank). He was extremely happy to have grandchildren including: Teddy Owen, Benjamin Owen, Jessica deVay (Omar Khalid), Stephanie deVay, and Katherine deVay. Most recently he enjoyed the birth of his first great grandson, Luca Khalid. An avid fisherman and farmer, Ken enjoyed living in Plaquemines Parish, hunting 80-100 alligators a year. He kept the family well stocked from fishing with Mike Viator and Dave Boisdore. He and Aloma operated a citrus farm for many years. Picking and selling oranges was one of his favorite things to do. He started his career as one of the first to use computers to write code and process data for the Apollo Missions. This was back in the days when computers took up whole floors of a building. Later as a physical scientist he worked for General Electric, NOAA and NASA. At NOAA, he enjoyed analyzing and maintaining data on marine life in the Gulf of Mexico. But most importantly, he was all about family and friends. Always helping people when he could, he devoted his time to helping his community survive and thrive the aftermath of hurricanes. He is loved and will be missed by many. We wish him well in his heavenly home. In Lieu of flowers memorials may be made in his honor to Nunez Community College Foundation for the Coastal Studies Scholarship/Savastano. Mail to 3710 Paris Rd., Chalmette, La 70043. Relatives and friends are invited to attend a visitation to be held at ST. BERNARD MEMORIAL FUNERAL HOME, 701 W.

VENDOR OF THE WEEK
A&K Citrus
Aloma and Kenneth, the A and the K behind A&K Citrus, have been providing the community with juicy fruit for 50 impressive years. The pair first ventured into the citrus business in the 1970’s, and have been selling goods at Crescent City Farmers Market since before Katrina. The small mom and pop farm is located in Braithwaite, LA, and yields a bounty of seasonal fruit such as satsumas, navel oranges, grapefruits, kumquats, mandarins, and more.
It is with a heavy heart that we share the news that Mr. Ken Savastano of A&K Citrus passed away late last week. Our hearts go out to Mrs. Aloma and the Savastano family during this difficult time. Mr. Ken was a beacon of knowledge in scientific discovery and environmental stewardship, not to mention a master of comedic performance. Please keep the Savastano family in your thoughts and prayers.
