Dear Family of Jack Lovell,
I didn't know a lot about Jack, but we served together in VP-22 at Barber's Point, Hawaii from 1965 to 1968 when I departed for Italy. We became friends after learning we both grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan and graduated the same year in 1964. Whenever we talked about Grand Rapids it was usually about our days competing in sports. He had fond memories of playing against my high school, South High School and the spirited games played between Creston and South. Jack was a really great guy and I'm sorry he's gone too early. I found his obituary after searching for him in the class yearbook of 1964. I always wondered what happened to him and where life had taken him. We often meet great people in the military and I'm glad our paths crossed and that we were able, as guys from Grand Rapids, to serve together, albeit too short. May God grant you peace and rest, my friend and squadron mate. Just sorry we can't share more stories about the lives we lived between '65 and '18. I had family in Olympia and visited there many times but I just didn't know Jack was in Washington State. We'll catch up, Jack, on the other side.
