Maurie Lovell


It is with great sadness we advise that Maurie Lovell of Lovell’s Shepparton Newsagency passed away on Sunday 4th February 2007.

We at Pos Solutions, extend our sincere and deepest sympathy to Maurie’s wife Shirley, children Gary, Louise, and Wendy and grandchildren Kane, Jake, Rodney and Samual.

We knew him for many years as one of the most progressive leaders in the newsagency industry in technology. He was keenly interested in how the computers work. What made them tick! How they could help the industry and his newsagency better! He was among the first in computerizing just about everything in newsagencies for example the newspaper distribution, cash registers, introducing point of sale, school book, EFTpos and magazine returns. His newsagency always took the lead in development. Much of the systems, you use now were designed in his newsagency.

I noticed in any industry project, he would be there. He was always admired and respected as it was a pleasure working with such a warm man, with a keen sense of humour. He was always and friendly to people and he related to all in a non-judgmental way.

For more details of the family's wishes please see the funeral notice in today's (Tuesday) Herald Sun.
