Alvie is survived by his sisters Mary and Anne and sister-in-law’s Irma (Coyle) Coulthard, Sylvia Shultz and brother-in-law Dennis Welch. He was beloved by many nieces and nephews. Dad was above all, a good man. He taught us that honesty, integrity, hard work, respect, humour and kindness should guide our daily lives. He was an athlete whose love of playing the games of baseball and hockey was infinite. He ran like the wind, hit the ball like “the Babe” and without exception, whether on the rink , the diamond, or in life, he reached for his best. He mentored so many youth on the ball field; many people still refer to him affectionately as “coach”. Dad was inducted into the Sports Hall of Fame in Dresden, Ontario. We all have such wonderful memories of him on the farm and at the cottage. He loved his family and friends with a passion, only surpassed by the love he held for his wife Yvonne. “Such a bonnie lad” will not be forgotten in this life or the next. A memorial celebration of Alvie’s life will be hosted by the Lovell family at a date and place to be later announced. A private service will be held for immediate family members.
