Alan Christopher Lovell

May 7, 1974 — December 10, 2023

Alan Christopher Lovell, 49, of Louisville, Kentucky, passed away peacefully on Sunday, December 10, 2023 at his treasured lake house on Nolin Lake surrounded by his adoring dogs Layla and Leonard.

He was born on May 7, 1974 in Saint Louis, Missouri to Neil and Shirley (Schumann) Lovell. He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Paul and Lydia Schumann and John and Jessie Lovell and granddaughter, Mickie Esposito-Grenier.

Alan was diagnosed at four years old with Leber Congenital Amaurosis, an eyesight condition that would gradually steal his perfect vision. What would seem to be a disability to most would launch Alan's 27-year career with the American Printing House for the Blind in Louisville, KY. It was here that Alan would impact hundreds, if not thousands of employees and individuals with low vision and blindness. Alan's career growth at APH included numerous promotions as he mastered and shaped some of the various services provided by APH. Bringing light to so many in a dark world, Alan utilized his life skills to provide support, guidance, encouragement, and direction with just the right amount humor to those who needed to see the light in a blind world.

Alan loved his family and friends fiercely. He had an infectious smile and laugh that is evident in every photo and memory. He loved listening to, singing and playing music. He was a major fan of Widespread Panic, Tedeschi Trucks Band and Pearl Jam. He loved breaking out in an Eddie Vedder song. Alan was an explorer who saw the world with his hands and other senses. He never let his blindness be a barrier. He had an innate sense of his surroundings and directed people driving his boat turn by turn.

Alan is survived by his loving husband of 20 years; William "Bill" Grenier, parents, Neil & Shirley Lovell; brother, David Lovell (Tammy); children, Tony Esposito (Molly), Mel Esposito-Grenier (Candace), Justin Grenier; four grandchildren, Darrien Esposito, Aiden Esposito, Mauricio and Emiliano Esposito-Grenier. He is also survived by nieces, Amber Mays (Tim), Alexis Henschen (Manny); great-niece, Daisy Mae Henschen, and a host of loving uncles, aunts, cousins and beloved friends.
