Jef M. Luvison

Jef M. Luvison, 70, of Sugar Grove, passed away June 28, 2022, at UPMC Hamot in Erie after an extended illness.

Jef was born Aug. 9, 1951, in Warren to Claude “Dink” and Nan (Warner) Luvison, who survive him of Youngsville. Jef was a member of the Youngsville American Legion Post #658 and the Sugar Grove AmVets Club No. 50 and was a lifetime member of the NRA. He was drafted into the U.S. Army and served in Germany until becoming a partner with his father and brother in the Roger Luvison and Son Construction Company.

Jef loved rabbit and deer hunting, gardening and watching Fox News as he was a staunch conservative Republican. He enjoyed Sunday cookouts and shooting on his rifle range. But the most important thing was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. He loved taking his kids and nephews to watch his favorite teams the Buffalo Bills and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Jef is survived by his wife Marlene “Skunk” Luvison , whom he married Sept. 8, 1973, his children Mellisa Luvison and her companion Larry Havers of Youngsville, Rory Luvison and his companion Charity Nuse and Tracey Luvison, both of Sugar Grove; his siblings, Matt (Penny) Luvison of Youngsville, Claudia Thelin of Lander, Kelly (Karen) Luvison of Sayre, PA, Natalie (Craig) Ostergaard of Pioneer, CA; his grandchildren Jasmine and Brady Etter , Collins Havers, Phoenix Luvison and Jerecho Johnson, and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Jef was preceded in death by his brother Kim Luvison; a nephew, Josh Luvison; a brother-in-law, Robert Thelin; his paternal grandparents Amalia and Roger Luvison and his maternal grandparents Ivan and Lovinia Warner.

Friends and family may call on Thursday June 30, 2022 from 4-7 p.m. at the Nelson Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 314 North Main St. in Youngsville. A private graveside service will be held at the convenience of the family.
