Randy ‘Savage’ Tillim was a jack of all trades but was famous for hosting videos on his Savage Garage YouTube channel. In the channel’s introductory video, Savage promised to feature all manner of exotic cars on the channel, and boy did he deliver. If it’s a car and it’s bonkers and exotic, you’ll find it on Savage Garage.
Tillim built his fortune via CLARUS Merchant Services, a payment solutions company he founded and served as CEO. He created the company after ‘experiencing difficulties with payment processing as a restaurant owner. Savage also invested in a car rental service dubbed Go Exotics.
Randy Tillim’s cause of death has yet to be made public
In mid-April 2022, Savage Garage announced via Instagram that Randy passed away on 15th April 2022. The post described Randy’s passing as ‘a tragedy beyond measure.’ It continued:
“Randy was the most kind, generous, and genuine person we ever knew. He had a positive impact on everyone he met, and his legacy will live on forever. Randy will always be remembered as a true friend, and an icon. He will be greatly missed. Rest in Peace and ‘Stay Savage.'”
Fans, friends, and associates paid tribute to the departed car enthusiast, universally praising him as an all-around great man and a master of his craft. Alex Choi, Tillim’s close friend, wrote:
“Rest in peace to my dearest friend and mentor. I will hold the memories we’ve made till the end of my life. I will forever remember the lessons you have taught me, and the opportunities you’ve brought me. I’m truly sorry for your loss, Ana and family. I am at a loss of words.”
The Savage Garage team hasn’t yet publicized the cause of Randy Tillim’s death. Some rumors claim that Tillim passed away in a car crash, but those reports are unsubstantiated.
Tillim left behind his wife, son, dogs, and many friends
Randy Tillim’s wife, Ana Maria Terrasa-Tillim, goes by Mrs. Savage or Lady Savage. She draws her heritage from Spain and Uruguay. Mrs. Savage previously worked as a chef for her cakes and pantry business known as Ana’s Cakes before becoming an instructional assistant at a public school.
She learned her craft at the Culinary Institute of America. Ana shared Randy’s love for cars, with Porsche being her preferred manufacturer.
Randy and Ana spent two decades bonding over their love for the Beatles. They’d started collaborating on baking series dubbed Savage Sweets on Randy’s YouTube channel.
The pair raised a son and two Labradors – Tucker and Oscar – who Ann affectionately calls her ‘distinguished gentlemen.’ Ana has set her Instagram page to private, but her bio reveals everything you need to know about her.
“Puppies, Pastries, & Porsche,” Ana’s Instagram bio reads. She’s yet to comment publicly on Randy Tillim’s death.
Randy’s friends, however, have posted thousands of comments expressing their condolences and urging his family to stay strong in these trying times. Content creator Tim of Shmee150 wrote on social media:
“Randy has been inspirational to millions and always made sure that everyone around him would have a smile on their face. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife, children, family, friends and the Savage Garage team at this time. Rest in peace Randy, I’ll never forget you.”
