Kevin Dale Lovestrom
May 22, 1963 ~ September 17, 2010
With sad hearts we announce the sudden passing of our son, brother and uncle, Kevin Dale Lovestrom.
Kevin passed away quietly at home on September 17, 2010. Kevin loved life and his family dearly and will be sadly missed by his mother and father, Jean and Bob, his sister Laurie Dawn, brother (in-law)Pat Trippell, his three nieces Leah, Holly and Alexandra and his Granny Laurine Lindsay of Creston, BC. Kevin will also be missed by Renee, uncles and aunts, Dave and Robbie Lindsay of Creston, BC and their family, Fred and May Masuch and family, Alice and Bill MacDonald and family, Lorraine Lovestrom and family, Albert and Margaret Lovestrom and family, the Everitt family and many cousins and close friends.
Kevin followed in his father’s footsteps working in construction in BC and Alberta, initially as a construction surveyor and later as a senior construction manager with a firm in Calgary, AB. Kevin loved to snow ski, kayak, para-glide and spend time with his friends and family. Kevin also enjoyed cooking and whenever there was a family get-together we looked forward to his gourmet dishes. Kevin was a kind and gentle soul with attitude. He had a special love for his grandma and grandfather Lovestrom, Gran and Granddad Lindsay and the old Lindsay farm on Hurry Road in Creston, where as a small child, he learned to ride a horse and love animals.
Kevin lived the past year in Vancouver with his cat, Orange Kitty, who were companions for 17 years prior to Kitty’s passing on August 19. Kevin always had more questions than answers about life but we know he now has an answer to all he was seeking. Kevin, we know you are watching over us, we love and miss you very much…your family and friends.
A Celebration of Kevin’s life and time for sharing will be held on Saturday October 9, 2010 at 1:00 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall in Creston, BC.
We kindly request that in lieu of flowers a memorial contribution may be made in Kevin’s name to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada, 4 – 1551 Sutherland Ave, Kelowna BC, V1Y 9M9 or to Canadian Cancer Society, c/o Kathi Nelson # 10 – 915 Vancouver St. Creston, BC, V0B 1G0
