On Monday, July 13, 2020, Edwin Eugene “Ed” Lovan, fisherman and father to three, passed away at the age of 61. He was born January 27, 1959 on Thornburg Street in West Plains, Missouri.
Ed was employed as a metal fabricator for American Railcars and was also a welder. He was talented in the art of bladesmithing and was self-taught. Ed was the happiest fishing on the river and camping. He had a quirky personality and a unique perspective of the world. He had a passion for cooking, especially for those he loved.
He is survived by his three children, Phillip “PJ” Lovan, James “Matt” Lovan, and Amanda Murrow; and four grandchildren, Keele Murrow, Brenden Lovan, Alora Lovan, and Dregon Lovan.
Ed was preceded in death by his mother, Rosa Lee (Coble) Lovan, and his father, Johnnie Wilson Lovan.
A memorial will be held at a later date. Arrangements were under the direction of Yarber Mortuary, Willow Springs, Missouri. Condolences may be expressed at www.yarbermortuary.com.
