  • Our condolences to the family on the passing of Billy. I have many memories of working with him and also spending time with the family over the years.

    Our thoughts & prayers.

  • Bill will be dearly missed. He spent time as a young guy at my family home in Pilgrum Gardens. I did not know him then. My sisters had a lot of friends and I spent most of my teenage years hanging out at the Brookside bowling alley and the Brookside shopping center and McDonalds in Newark. It was a time when you never knew what was going to happen next. I served in the US Army as a helicopter in Vietnam 1969-1970. After retiring I started working at the VA helping Vets get the benefits they deserve. I few years ago a guy came into my office needing help with his benefits. He sat down with my office partner he got his case started. In a few minutes this guy turned around to be and asked “are you Rick Lovekin”. I said yes. He said the he didn’t think I knew him but he dated my sister Donna. He proceeded to tell me a story of when he was at my families house seeing Donna and needed a ride home. I told him to hope into my ’65 mustang and I would take him home. This was before seatbelts. He told me that I gave him the thrill of his life and was glad he got home alive and that next time he will walk. I was glad to meet Bill again and my partner and me worked hard to get him his benefits and at least make his life a little better.
    We Lovekins will all miss you very much Bill
