Mark Adrian Lovely, 87, passed away early the morning of October 3, 2021.

He was born on Salyers Branch near Hueysville on September 12, 1934, a son of Alto and Ethel Lovely.

In 2011, after nearly 54 years of marriage, Rose passed away suddenly. It was a difficult adjustment for Mark, but many friends and family helped him cope with the loss, especially his niece Earlena Bayes and husband Jim.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by wife, Rose Lovely; his brothers, Ivan Lovely and Hamlet Lovely and his sister Nova Lee Hicks.

He is survived by his brother Jack (Carol) Lovely of Knoxville, Tenn.; sister Loveda Coburn of Garrett; brother-in-law, Paul (Lynn) Dove of Stephens Branch near Martin; sons, Mark (Teresa) Steven Lovely of Cadiz and Sean (Cindy) Lovely of Smyrna Tenn.; a step-grandson and three grandchildren.

Due to recent COVID-19 health concerns, the family has chosen to have a private funeral service that will be held at Hindman Funeral Home, 619 Hindman Bypass, Hindman, Ky., 41822, with Rev. Richard Sexton officiating. Burial with military honors will follow the Private Service at Davidson Memorial Gardens in Ivel. Local Arrangements are being handled by Goodwin Funeral Home, Inc., 138 Main Street in Cadiz.
