In memory of charlie lovick

1948 - 2012

Charles Lovick was the first secretary of Stanstead Abbotts Local History Society.

    Charles was a founder member of the History Society and responsible for much of the original constitution. Charles was also a well known figure in the village and was loved by everyone. He was equally at home having tea with the Trower family at Stanstead Bury or having a cuppa with the members of the  Evergreen Club.

    Charles was a skilled and knowledgeable  man who worked for most of his life as a chemist for Merck Sharp & Dohme Ltd, both in England and abroad.

     He was also a good friend. Charles and I spent many a happy day fishing and many an evening playing cards and enjoying a pint in the Queens Head.

Goodbye old friend, may you rest in peace.
