William Joseph “Bill” Lovell, age 64, passed away on Jan. 14, 2010 at Carolinas Medical Center Main after a brief illness. Bill was the son of the late Lonnie Lewis and Crystal Harrison Lovell of Pulaski. He was educated in the Pulaski County School System and attended the University of Virginia. Bill was a sales representative for Jefferson Sales in Pulaski for over 30 years. He loved the challenge of meeting and becoming friends with his many customers. He was a “true salesman” in every sense of the word.
He is survived by his loving wife of over 40 years Kathryn Gibson Lovell; his son John Gibson Lovell and daughter-in-law Anne; another son, Jason Patrick Lovell; and one long-awaited and much-loved granddaughter, Grace Scott Lovell.
