October 14, 1974 – April 6, 2019
Brad Lovell, 44, of Charlotte, North Carolina, passed away Saturday, the 6th of April.
He was born on the 14th of October 1974 in Kettering, Ohio, one of two children to Pamela Froehle Lovell and the late Dennis George Lovell.
Brad “ THE MAYOR” Lovell, knew everything about everyone as his apartment unit perfectly sat where a lot of us had to bypass his place to get to the secret entrance to the elevator, the laundry room, the trash cans, or to the car parking lot. Depending on when he heard your car being towed, he would stall the towing company while texting you to get your ass down to the parking lot QUICKLY!!
He left his Windows & Blinds WIDE OPEN so we could catch a glimpse of him doing the THREE THINGS HE LOVED, playing video games, watching movies on his huge tv or blasting music from his DJ turntable set, giving us a free concert and inviting folks over for “a beer” to hear him DJ.
Walking down the hallways, to the laundry room or to THE STOOP will never be the same, as we all looked forward to BRAD being the 1st one to greet us with a “GOOD MORNING have a great day” or the last one out on THE STOOP to let us in to say “GOODNIGHT” and somewhere in between filling us in with THE LATEST SHIT!! Plainly put B.R.A.D. to us meant BE READY ALL DAY!!
Brad & I have had so many conversations about how color affects behavior, that we both went down to the local home depot store purchasing gallons of paint to paint our units. He painted his BUBBLE GUM RED and I painted mine GREEN ENERGY, which promoted others to paint their units as well.
In his honor, he would want us to do our best in coming together AS ONE in seeing that the main floor and his hallway (the gateways to our building) get painted “one day at a time” to a brighter happier place, to make us FEEL GOOD VIBES just like our friend and Brother BRAD “THE MAYOR” was able to do so well.
“Brad may be gone in body but his spirit will always be in my heart. You are “my sunshine”.” – Love, Mom.
“You are my little brother and I am your big sis. You are my DJ buddy and I am your DJ buddy. Always and forever. May your light always shine brightly upon us.” – Love, Lara
The family will greet friends from 1:00 PM until 3:00 PM, Saturday, the 13th of April 2019 at Ellington Funeral Services.
A service to celebrate his life will be held at 3:00 PM in The Historic Morehead Street Chapel a the funeral home. Burial will be private.
Locally, Brad is survived by his mother, Pamela Lovell and a sister, Lara Lovell.
