In support of the health of his family, face coverings are mandatory while attending his service.

Daron Shane Savage was born on February 4, 1972, to Lanny and Carleen Savage in Hale Center, Texas. Throughout his life, family and friends alike knew him as “Shane.”

Shane married Tonya Spradling on April 15, 2000, in Denton, Texas. Shane and Tonya began their life in Lubbock, Texas, where they have remained throughout their marriage.  Shane received his degree in graphic arts from Dallas Art Institute and started his career in the Graphics and printing business working for Copy Craft for 13 years. He then took on a new challenge and began working in the oilfield for AST based out of Midland, Texas.  As many can attest, Shane had an infectious personality and charisma, which captivated the people he met in work and life.  As the years grew, so did the number of people he touched along the way.  Shane had a special way of making a stranger into a friend within minutes of interacting with them.  His smile was genuine, and his kind-natured heart made an impact on the people he met. Shane’s personality shined most during his moonlighting karaoke DJ gigs with his friend David and ALWAYS at the golf course.  Those two places let people see the fun-loving, competitive, driven person that he was.  Shane was a hard worker who would always lend a hand to help anyone who asked.  He loved going hunting with his friends and brother Shawn.   As much as Shane loved to golf with his friends at golf tournaments and being the center of attention at any Karaoke session, his greatest love and passion was for his wife and children.  Shane and Tonya were blessed with raising four beautiful children and his beloved niece.  Shane was a great father, husband, brother, uncle, and son who sacrificed his time and energy for the happiness of others.  His love for life and an amazing attitude throughout his battle is what made him special and easy to root for.  All one has to do, is look at all the people left in his wake and see the love he shared with everyone.  The people left here will be the ones to carry on his love for life, and that is exactly what he would want people to do.  There is still a lot of Shane left in this world within the people he touched and loved. Carry that forward.  And as Shane would say, “Peace in the Middle East!”

Survivors include his wife, Tonya Savage; their children, Brennan, Prestan, Zadan, and Azlan Savage; his niece that he raised as a daughter, A’lexon Spradling; mother, Carleen Hayes; siblings, Michelle Savage, Shawn Savage, and wife, April; Beau Savage and wife, Shea; numerous nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, and cousins.  Shane’s stepbrother Casey Savage, wife, Janette; and stepsister, Becca Ford.

He was preceded in death by his father, Lanny Earl Savage.

Tonya would like to thank Kindred Hospice and all the friends and family for their help during his battle with cancer, especially her mom, Liz Taylor-Lane.


The family of Shane Savage has designated the Make-A-Wish Lubbock for memorial contributions donated in his memory.

    Many prayers of comfort to all of his beautiful family. While I only knew Shane in our Junior High and High School years in Hereford, I have this very vivid memory of him singing his heart out in my gray Subaru to Michael Jackson’s Man in the Mirror and Richard Marx’s Endless Summer Nights…. we laughed and laughed at how he could take any song and sing it with such passion! How fitting that he became a Karaoke aficionado in his later years! Sing On my sweet childhood friend! The next time I go to Karaoke I’ll sing one of my favorites for you…..Forever Young! ????????????????

  7. I met Shane through golf, I came to love Shane through a brain tumor. My daughter n law was diagnosed with a similar tumor I called Shane to ask for his advice and he said where are you I said I’m at the golf store he said I’ll be there in 5 minutes. Shane came answered all my questions even told us where to stay at MD Anderson and stuck with me through the entire process. Shane will forever have a place in my heart.

  8. Tonya and Family:

    You all are in my heart and in my prayers.

    I love you, my long time dear friend Tonya.

    Tonya, Shawn, and Savage Family,
    What a lovely service for a wonderful “force of nature!” Shane’s hugs and smile will truly be missed. As a mother who has loved following the golf “kids” from their young beginning thru their adulthood, I can attest that Shane was always respectful and gracious. I will miss seeing him at tournaments and witnessing his infectious positive attitude. I pray your family finds peace in knowing Shane is no longer in pain and he will always be watching over you from the most beautiful heaven.

  21. THIS guy! Shane, who I met through Donald when we were dating. Such energy, such happiness and smiles and laughter. He was in our wedding and we adored his family and the treasured moments we spent with them. They grew fewer with more kids and more activities, but when we got together, it was like no time had passed. I am heartbroken for you, Tonya and your sweet, beautiful babies. Nothing feels right about this. I have so many hilarious memories of Shane – some I can tell and some I can’t lol! He was a super special one and he adored you, Tonya, like I’ve never seen a man adore a woman. He was absolutely crazy about you. ❤️ I am grateful for our friendship, our time with him, our laughs, his hugs, his beautiful smile. We love you, Savages.
