LOVRETA Jim

Obituary Guest Book 70 Messages

LOVRETA (JIM ANTHONY)

12 May 1952 - 3 May 2022

Sadly, passed away in Royal Perth Hospital with loved ones by his side. Eldest son of Stipan and Karma Lovreta (dec), loving partner to Snjezana and to her son George. Much loved brother of Mary and Tony.

Jim was a devoted Barba to 3 nieces and 1 nephew and great Barba to 4.

An intelligent and wise man loved by many. Jim's passion and knowledge of the vineyard will forever be remembered. He was a great man who was taken from us too soon. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay, your hard-working hands are now at rest.

LOVRETA (Jim Anthony):

In loving memory of a proud, selfless and caring gentleman, he was a man full of knowledge always willing to help. A man of his word which was always golden if he said he'd do something you knew it was done. He never had a negative thing to say about anyone. For 33 years he was the loving partner of Snjezana and step-father to George who was much loved by the closest ones to him. Respected by the family that was always by your side and close friends. Jimmy 'between me and you' you taught us many life lessons which will be carried on to future generations now 'Mande get a pen and paper'. You will always be dearly loved and forever missed.

Snjezana and George

LOVRETA (Jim Anthony):

My dear brother you are now resting peacefully. Our life without you won't be the same and my tears I can not hide. In life we loved you dearly and death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, for part of us went with you the day God took you to your new home. As we promised to you, we will always look after your Snez (Mande) and George. RIP forever in our hearts Mary and Krsto.

LOVRETA (Jim Anthony):

Our hearts are a little heavier and the world less bright with you leaving us Barba Jim. Our condolences go out to Teta Nena, George, Mum, Tata and the rest of our family and friends who are sharing the pain of losing such a great man from our lives. Between you and me, you truly were one of a kind. May you eternally Rest in Peace and be the Angel looking after us in spirit like you did whilst you were with us on Earth. Our love always Sue, Aree and Kam.

LOVRETA (Jim Anthony):

Barba Jim I can't put into words the pain our hearts feel right now. You always had my back no matter where I turned. You gave so selflessly, you guided me through life's ups and downs. Your little buddy Theo and vrag Ava will always hold you in their hearts. Your golden heart has stopped beating, if love alone could have saved you, you never would have been taken from us. Our family chain is broken and will never be the same, we will never forget you nor what you did for us. We love you Barba Jim forever missed but never forgotten Michelle, Theo and Ava.

     To Tony Julie Shari Kyle

    Deepest sympathy to all the family. Louwrens and Maria know how close you were to Jim.

    Tony and Kyle, you worked together in the vineyard so you have lots of memories to keep.

    Now the family has lost the older brother but left memories of his family that has been past down the generation,  the Lovreta family still goes on down the line working the vineyard. Our thoughts are with you.

    Condolences to you both. Louwrens and Jim had a lot to do with him delivering grapes at Coles canning vale. He was respected friend over many years and always had a love to bring with Shari and Kyle in the truck to Coles as an uncle who loved to be with him. 

    Great friend and business man.

    My dear brother the time has come and you have now passed away. It is hard to believe we will not see you again. Our journey together started as little boys and lasted until the day you died. We were blessed to be left the Lovreta Legacy and together we continued it as one. There are not enough words to explain how much we achieved together, always side by side. I look back on the happier times when we were younger and started the group together.

    I am filled with endless memories of you and I with our parents on the vineyard. I will treasure your memory forever my dear brother.

    Rest In Peace. Love from Tony and Julie

    LOVRETA (Jim):

    Words cannot explain the pain that we are in over the loss of our beloved Barba. No-one can understand what you meant to us. We grew up in a shed with you teaching us to help on the vineyard. You raised us like your own children. Your love and support was endless. It's undeniable that you loved us deeply, as much as we loved you. We spent our school holidays with you on a tractor. We spent our weekends with you at the football or on a boat. You were even there to see Blake crawl for the first time. We are now left with a lifetime of memories that we will treasure forever. RIP Barba Jim. Love from Shari, Cory, Blake, Kyle and Mel.
