I went to school with Lovene starting in first grade in the Forks Township school.  His family

had a great place to dine in Forks and the whole family worked hard. I always saw Lovene

and he was even a fairly close neighbor of mine in Forks when I lived on Apple Blossom

Road way back. All the girls were crazy about Lovene in school. He was just a great

guy and handsome too..  The last time I saw him was at one of our reunions. We joked about each

of us gaining a few pounds!  RIP dear Lovene. We all love ya.

 My dear "Louie",     May you Rest In Peace now!   You were my other brother at Klock Gardens - picking strawberries, raspberries, beans, etc.  There were hot days driving tractor in the corn fields while you, my brother Tom and my father picked the sweet corn;  discing the fields; moving 30ft. muddy irrigation pipes; laughing (and fighting).  Your mother Lena and your sister Eleanor worked at different times at the roadside stand with me.  When we were little, we played football with the neighborhood kids in the airport fields.  With your siblings, we played cops and robbers across the street from each other with cap guns because my parents wouldn't allow us to play at your house.  So many, many memories.   Therefore, my neighbor and dear friend, may you now RIP and be with God.  You deserve it.

                                                Fondly,  Jane Klock Neumann-Bond

Great picture of Lovene.  We were classmates at Forks Township Elementary School.  In our class of 29 (16 boys) he was by far the best looking as previously mentioned by Betty Saylor.

Lovene and I were part of the school's 1st Midget Football team.  He played running back in our single wing attact and helped put Forks on the LV football map.  As we progressed to and thru junior & senior high school I was fortunate enough to maintain our initial friendsip with him. He was always a pleasure to be with and exchange meaningful conversation.

Fortunately my sister was close to Lovene and his wife as this allowed me to keep a distant but pleasant relationship.

Am sure it has been a good journey.  Fair winds and following seas.....George
