Fox, 16, of Byron, passed away at his home on Thursday, February 8, 2018.
Fox was born on Sunday, November 25, 2001, at 9:07AM to Travis and Corey Lovelace. He loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, skateboarding, basketball, video games, “trick” biking with his Haro, dirt-biking, snowmobiling, four-wheeling and hiking. He enjoyed being on the water and had a strong connection with nature. He was very intuitive, clever and had an attention for any detail. He had a soul far beyond his years. He was a friend to many. He will never be forgotten. We are grateful for every moment we were able to share with Fox and blessed to be his family.
He is survived by his father, Travis Lovelace; mother, Corey (Walker) Blumentritt; step-father, Ryan Blumentritt; brother, Connor Hagler and sister, Alyssa Lovelace; paternal grandparents, Bruce and Kathy Lovelace and maternal grandparents, Tim and Chris Edwards; uncles, Shawn (Melissa Lopez) Lovelace, Shannon (Stacy) Lovelace, Tim (Laurel) Edwards and aunt, April (Chad) Cowden; cousins, Abigail and Brayden Lovelace and Tianna and Cody Cowden. Fox was preceded in death by his maternal great-grandparents, Bob and Joyce Walker.

The family of Fox D. Lovelace has received the following condolences.
I want to offer my condolences to the Lovelace family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death__ even more so when they are so young. Death is so painful that even Jesus gave way to tears when his friend Lazarus died (John 11:35). It pains our Creator, too. He calls death an enemy that he will remove forever__ 1 Corinthians 15:26 "The last enemy, death, will be brought to nothing." He never purposed his human family to die but to live and enjoy life. It is still his purpose (Psalms 37:11,29). He has promised to awaken our love ones in the memorial tombs from asleep in death__ Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will rise ...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." Exquisite joy it will be to see our love ones again! I hope these words give all of you comfort.
Deeply sorry to hear of Fox's passing. We pray that with family, friends, faith & time your sadness will turn to all the wonderful memories of him. His kindness was felt by all who knew him! Praying for the family during this difficult time!

I never got to know Fox well but I knew that he was a wonder to behold for the family. Everyone at Byron Middle School is sending you all condolences. From what I could see and tell, I bet he was a(n) awesome brother/son to have. Everyone is greatly sorry for your loss.
Special note to Alyssa Lovelace,
If you ever need me call/text/email me at any time. I will always be here to support you and your family. If you need to just step out of the service you come straight to me and Z and we will step out with you if you need it. We will always be here for you. And don't you ever forget it.
Special note to Fox Lovelace,
I never got to know you good but I had a good feeling that you wanted to know me better as well. I wanted to get to know you better but I was shy and afraid that you wouldn't like my personality or something. So I'm taking this opportunity to say that you were a great person and brother to Alyssa. I know you tried your best. We were all there for you every single step of the way. Even now.
With Loving Thoughts,
My son Matt had many classes with Fox over the years. We moved away a few years ago but we all remember Fox very well. He was such a friendly personality. We are all heartbroken for your family and your loss. I’m so incredibly sorry.

To Fox's family ~ I wanted to let you all know that I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I had Fox in preschool and I can still picture his bright face, smile and the twinkle in his eyes. He was a kind and caring boy, so sweet to everyone. I am so very sorry for your loss. With Love, Stacie Stellner
Corey, Ryan, Connor and Allyssa,
I am thinking of you all and holding you tight in my prayers. I am having a difficult time finding the words to comfort your sorrow right now. Instead I wish we were all gathered at my pool like old times. I see him coming up my driveway in the go-cart , or stopping in to help me rake some leaves. He was such a peaceful soul around me. So thoughtful and kind. We had a connection, at times without even talking, it was acceptance. I will miss him greatly, and I am sure that my angel Gary was there to greet him and take him under his wing as Fox learn to fly with his. Fly high my angle Fox, fly high.
We are sorry for your loss. Fox was a remarkable and smart young man. He will be miss deeply. May God be with you and family at this time. Prayers and hugs to all.
i am so sorry to hear of Fox's passing. I have been thinking about the kind and sweet little boy he was in my kindergarten class many years ago. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers, and Fox will be in my heart as we move through the days ahead.
Travis and family, I am so very sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
