Obituary for Cornelius "Neil" Lovelady

Cornelius “Neil” F. Lovelady, 72 of Fairfield, CT, the beloved partner for over 22 years of Marilyn Eggers, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, April 8, 2018. He was born in Halifax, England to the late Cornelius C. and Elizabeth Lovelady and grew up in Oxford, MS.

He followed his passion for golf winning Pro-Am tournaments and serving as Assistant Golf Pro at the Country Club of Darien for over 30 years.
