I extend my deepest sympathies and prayers to the Lovelace family in this dark hour of the passing of our beloved, Gary Lovelace. He was a noble and kind man whose patronage was appreciated at my family's car wash, Brady's Auto Clean-Up. He really loved the BMW brand, and I fell in love with the brand new black BMW coupe he bought in 1994. For awhile, I was the sole person who picked it up and drove it back to our shop and did it many times. I really cherished every opportunity to drive it since it was so gorgeous! But both he, his wife, Linda, and his son, Carl, came to be frequent customers that we all endeared and appreciated for many years. They were all nice people. Rest in heavenly peace, my dear friend. Say hello to my mom and dad for me when you walk through heaven's gates up there.

Kevin Brady, Statesboro, GA

We are very grateful to God for the blessing of time with Gary in July 2017. Lord, let Your perpetual light shine upon Gary, and may he, through the mercy of God, Rest In Peace. Amen,

We mourn the loss of our beloved brother and brother-in-law, Gary. His talents and professional achievements will always be remembered, but mostly his loving and grateful manner in which he ended his life. He suffered much, but thought only to share his appreciation for our presence in his life. He will always remain in our hearts as a blessing in our lives. May God keep him close.

Gary was a long-standing member of Trinity Presbyterian Church in Statesboro and a member of Forest Heights Country Club, where he enjoyed his retirement playing golf.
