ORVILLE STANLEY LOVELL (published on September 13, 2008)

ORVILLE STANLEY LOVELL On September 8, 2008, at St. Boniface Hospital, Orville passed away peacefully with family at his side. He was 84. The eldest son of Ernest and Annie Lovell, Orville was born in Winnipeg and spent his summers at the family cottage at Ingolf, Ontario where he made lifelong friends. During World War II, he joined the RCAF and served as a Rear Gunner. Once the war was over, Orville worked as an operator with the CNR, using his Morse Code Skills, in various locations in Manitoba before settling permanently in Winnipeg. In 1951, he married Bernice Lauder Anderson (and Heather-Jean) and became the proud father of Bob and Scott. After 19 years with the railway, Orville left to start his own office cleaning service, which he operated until retirement. Orville was a long time resident of Windsor Park and a member of St. Bartholomew's Church. He loved watching sports on television - especially football, meeting for morning coffee at A W, and until recent years, enjoying times at his cottage at Ingolf. Orville's family and friends were dear to him, and he to them. His wry sense of humour will be missed. Predeceased by his wife of 56 years, Bernice, in 2007, brother Gordon, and brothers-in-law Tom Kines and Gordon Harvey. Orville is survived by his daughter Heather-Jean and son-in-law Drewe Littlejohn of Winnipeg, son Bob of Calgary, AB, son Scott (grandchildren Cara and Corley Sweeting) of Falcon Lake, MB, and sisters-in-law Dawn Lovell of N. Vancouver, B.C., Mavis Kines of Ottawa, ON, and Donna Harvey of Regina, SK. Cremation has taken place. Graveside prayers were held September 11, 2008. Chapel Lawn 885-9715
