Obituary for Louis Sakovits

Louis  Sakovits
Louis Sakovits of Fishkill, New York, 90, passed away on August 2, 2018. Louis is survived by his loving wife of almost 67 years Rose, his son Louis, daughters-in-law Shari and Lynne, grandchildren Jillian, Brian, and Alanna, brother Steven, and other loving family members. Louis was predeceased by his son Richard, sister Rose, and brother John.

Louis was born on August 19, 1927 to a farming family in Szentpéterfa, Hungary. As a young man, Louis rebelled against the Communist government in his native Hungary, in service of the Roman Catholic Church. Louis assisted his uncle—a prominent priest and Hungarian national hero—in helping individuals escape religious and political persecution under the Communist regime. Louis escaped Communist capture, and was granted political asylum in Austria in 1948.

Louis emigrated to Ontario, Canada in 1949 as a refugee farm worker where he resided with Florence and Jack Chanter. Louis was forever grateful to the Chanters and Canada. On a trip to New York City to thank the Timar family for support they had provided his family in Hungary after a fire in their village, Louis met his future wife, Rose Timar. They married in 1951, and ultimately settled in the United States.

Louis lived the American dream. He and Rose raised a happy family in the Bronx, where they were surrounded by extended family and friends. In later years, they relocated to Yonkers and later to Fishkill. Louis was devoted to his family, and was most proud of his grandchildren.

Louis was a proud steel worker whose projects included Three River Stadium (Pittsburgh), the World Trade Center, and the restoration of the Statue of Liberty. Beside his family, Louis remained in touch with his roots as a farmer, enjoying gardening, working inside and outside the house, cooking, and maintaining his car. Louis was a sports enthusiast and a Yankees, New York Rangers, and Minnesota Vikings fan.

A wake will be held on Sunday, August 5, 2018, from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at McHoul Funeral Home located at 895 NY-82, Hopewell Junction, New York 12533. A funeral service will be held on Monday, August 6, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at Saint Denis Roman Catholic Church located at 602 Beekman Road, Hopewell Junction, New York 12533. A cemetery service at Saint Denis will immediately follow.
