Dates of existence

b. 1944


Allan Savidant of Summerside, Prince Edward Island, was born in 1944. He worked for a time in Ottawa, Ontario, with the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, and it during this time that he met Diana Lemire (1943-1994). In 1973 the couple moved to Allan's home community of Summerside, Prince Edward Island, where Diana taught art and honed her skills as a painter and Allan worked as business superintendent of the local school district. Diana's works were displayed at various exhibitions and many pieces were sold to individuals across Canada and the United States, with her husband acting as her business manager. A major exhibit of her paintings of local heritage buildings held at the Eptek National Exhibition Centre in 1992 was titled “Of Merchant, Fox, and Sail.” Most of the pieces were later donated to the Prince County Hospital Foundation and were put on displayed at the new Prince County Hospital that opened in 2004. Another major exhibit in which both Savidants were involved was “Spirit of the Light” held in Summerside in 1995. Diana Savidant died suddenly in 1994, but Mr. Savidant and the other artists participating in the project carried it to completion. Allan Savidant obtained the status of Certified General Accountant in 1974 and finished his professional career as manager of the Wyatt Heritage Properties for the City of Summerside from 2001 to 2004.
