David Leonard Lovik
David Leonard Lovik set upon this world July 13, 1948, in Lebanon, Oregon, and moved away from us April 8, 2021. His parents were Gladys and Lloyd Lovik, and he grew up and graduated from high school in Sweet Home, Oregon.
After high school, David served in the Army, and then attended Oregon College of Education. One of David's proudest times was serving in the Army Honor Guard at Fort Meyer in Washington D.C.
It was while attending college that he met Phyllis Elaine Rains. They were married in June of 1971, and would have celebrated their 50th anniversary this coming June. David worked for the U.S. Post Office for 30 years.
David was a very active member of the Elks Lodge #1371 where he served as a board member, ran the school supply program and was in charge of the gathering and distribution of toys at Christmas as part of the Lodge's food basket program. He was a huge fan of all things Oregon State Beavers, especially football, baseball, and girl's gymnastics. David loved to travel and was an avid reader, with a book always within easy reach.
David will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Phyllis; nephews, John and Bill Lovik and Michael Evans; nieces, Teela Evans and Lisa Parr; and of course his many friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents; older brother, Lloyd Martin Lovik II; older sister, Rena Evans; nephew, Lloyd Martin Lovik III; and Baron - the best dog ever.
A celebration of life is yet to be scheduled. Donations in David's name may be made to the Christmas Toy Fund at the Bend Elks Lodge #1371, 63120 Boyd Acres Rd., Bend, OR 97701. Arrangements handled by Baird Funeral Home. Please visit www.bairdfh.com to sign the online guestbook.
