R. Jay Lovell

Aug 20 1952 - Aug 03 2006

R. Jay Lovell was born in Newton, Kansas on August 20, 1952 to Letha and Cloral Lovell and passed on August 3, 2006. The family moved to Texas in 1954 and lived in Greenville until 1966 when the family temporarily relocated to Taylors, S.C. He attended East Texas State University and went directly into the wholesale drug business, working for more than thirty years with Stanley Drug, Bergen-Brunswig, and McKesson. Jay was a loving and loyal brother and son. He was a dedicated and loving father that always wanted the very best for his children. He made many sacrifices to ensure this was so. His extended family reaches far beyond his familial unit. Co-workers, business associates, and other friends have been a source of much love, support, and prayers as he battled cancer. His mother, Letha Lovell, preceded him in death. His father, Cloral Lovell of Greenville, TX; his daughter and son-in-law, Melanie and Peter Kearney of Staten Island, N.Y.; two sons, David Lovell of Dallas, TX and Taylor Lovell of McKinney, TX; and granddaughter, Olivia Kearney, survive him. Other family members mourning his loss are the following siblings and their families: brother, Mike Lovell of Carrollton, TX; sisters: Diane Simpson of Richardson, TX; Jan Riley of Ennis, TX; Susan Cook of Tomball, TX; Kim Bond of Durant, OK; and Amber Lovell of Nashville, N.C. Numerous nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts, and cousins will miss their wild and crazy Jay. His golfing amigos will miss Jay’s golf swing and humor. Jay’s wonderful friend and love of his life, Jennifer Smith joins his family in mourning not only the passing of a great friend but also the loss of what might have been. A remembrance gathering will be held Saturday, August 5th , from 3 to 5pm, and a memorial service Sunday, August 6th , at 4pm. Both gatherings will be at Turrentine Jackson Morrow Funeral Home in Allen, TX. Memorials can be made to the Special Olympics.
