Earl "Sonny" Lovell Obituary

Earl ‘Sonny” Lovell, 84 of Danville, left us suddenly on Friday, October 28, 2022 at OSF Sacred Heart Hospital in Danville. Per his wishes, he will be cremated and a graveside service at Danville National is being planned for the near future. Full military rites will be accorded.

   Sonny was born on April 28, 1938 in Grand Rapids, Michigan to George Henry and Mary Elizabeth (Hart) Lovell. He attended school through the eighth grade and enlisted in the US Military. Sonny worked as a machine operator for Danville Metal Stamping for several years. When he was able, he enjoyed fishing, working in his yard, and being outdoors.  

   Sonny married Cheryl French on August 3, 1973 and the two have shared forty-nine years together; she survives. He also leaves behind two daughters- Tina and Gina; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren; his half-brothers: Kenneth and Albert Mitchell; and a handful of half-sisters with whom he has lost touch. He was preceded in death by his parents, a brother, and several sisters.
