Remembering Arthur Lovisi

I didn't know Arthur was sick. A few hours ago I found out he was being moved off life support and yes, he has passed.

Arthur Lovisi, devoted Lady Monarch fan.

Arthur and I rarely agreed about anything politically, and often we didn't see eye-to-eye basketball wise. But it's hard to find a more devout fan of ODU. He was always at the Constant Center in his familiar perch. He bled blue whether the coach was Wendy Larry or Karen Barefoot.

Arthur lost his daughter, Christina, in 2006 when a deer struck her car. He loved that girl and kept her memory alive through the years. I can only hope they have been reunited.

Rest in peace, Arthur Lovisi. You will be missed by many and forgotten by none.
