Funeral Homes   Submit Obituary



LOVEGROVE, Daniel - On Saturday, August 13th, 2011 our wonderful son Daniel was taken from us in a tragic accident. Always looking out for others, he died a hero. When his friend fell, Daniel grabbed him to try to save him. Sadly he was unable to hold on.

Daniel grew up in Edmonton, and moved to Peachland in 2007. He was entering his fourth year of Psychology at UBCO, and had made the Dean’s list the last two years. He also worked at the drive thru Starbucks in Westbank. He was kind, giving and caring. He marched by his own drummer and was remembered by everyone who ever met him.

He was an incredible person and was taken from us far too soon. He knew how proud we were of who he was and all that he stood for. There is a hole in our hearts that will never heal.

He will always be remembered by us, his parents, Kerry and Thomas Lovegrove, the one and only love of his life Jennifer Sheets, (Darryl and Patty) and his maternal Grandma Carol Ewasiuk. He was pre-deceased by his maternal Grandpa Lawrence Ewasiuk.

He also leaves many Aunts, Uncles, cousins and friends who deeply mourn his loss.

An open Visitation for those who wish to see him will be held on Thursday August 18, 2011 from 7-9 at the Hansons’Arbor Westwood Funeral Chapel, 2541 Churchill Road, West Kelowna.

Please come join us in a celebration of his life on Saturday August 20, 2011 at 1 pm at the Central Common of the Edgewater Mobile Park (his home) 6663 Highway 97 South, Peachland, 4 kms south of the lights at Princeton and highway 97 in Peachland. Parking is available at Hardy Falls, the entrance is just past the park entrance. Signs will be posted.
Please bring lawn chairs or blankets – dress casual and comfortable.
Anyone who can assist with car pooling or needs a ride to Peachland, please meet at the drive thru Starbucks on Brown Road at 12:30 on Saturday.

We are hoping that all who wish to be here with us will be able to do so.

The Daniel Lovegrove Memorial Education Fund providing bursaries for post secondary education will be his legacy.
