Quentin Charles Lovejoy, (Red Shield) “Wahacaŋka Duta” 31, of the Spirit Lake Nation began his journey to his Heavenly home on Saturday, August 24, 2019 amongst his loving family.
Quentin Charles Lovejoy was born on February 17, 1988 at Med Center One (now Sanford Hospital) in Bismarck, ND the son of Lynette (Larrabee) and Ivan Lovejoy Sr. Quentin attended Four Winds and graduated from Four Winds High School with the class of 2006. He then attended United Tribes Technical College in Bismarck and then worked various jobs in the area including the Spirit Lake Casino and Resort. He was also working with the Spirit Lake Fire Department on the Spirit Lake Nation; he was with a training unit that would go to fight fires. Before he began his courageous battle against colon cancer in June of 2017, he worked for All State Fire Protection in Denver, CO.
Quentin was an avid basketball, softball and volleyball player when he wanted to be. He always had a smile on his face, no matter what kind of day he had, he always had jokes, liked to tease. He also loved spending time with his son, Jayden and also spending time with his nieces and nephews.
Que was always wanting to help with whatever and whenever he could. Quentin would never say no when asked to play on a team, never said no to anyone, unless he was already on a team, then he would say “Next time I will play with you”.
Quentin was just the most all-around awesome man you could ever meet. He loved to travel and didn’t care where he was going, he just wanted to travel; cruz around with friends or with his family.
Que is survived by his one and only son Jayden Charles Lovejoy; his mother Lynette and father Ivan; 3 brothers Ivan Jr., Joseph and Charles; one nephew and two nieces; grandmother Catherine Howard; grandpa Thomas RedBird; special friend Marissa GoodVoice; aunt Katherine Larrabee Silk and many other special family and relatives.
He was preceded in death by his Grandma Juanita RedBird, Grandma Mary RedBird, Grandpa Lala Joe Bluecoat, Grandpa Jim Young, Nephew Keelye and Auntie Delberta.
When Michael Jordan was born so was another great basketball player, Quentin “Que” Lovejoy. They didn’t wear the same number but Que made #44 Jersey very awesome. From the time Que could dribble a basketball, you could already tell there was something special about him. They both had great coaches; Michael Jordan was coached by the greatest Coach Phil Jackson; Que Lovejoy was coached by a legendary coach also, Rick Smith. But the Creator called one of the legends home, Quentin “Que” Lovejoy. We as a family know Que is playing with the rest of the legends in that big beautiful basketball court in the sky. As we watched our Que play so gracefully on the court, including in the State Class “B” Basketball tournament. He was spectacular in every move he made on the basketball court, earning him “Player of the Game” two times against Richland and Shiloh Christian. Que was honored to be selected on the all-tournament team for spectacular play during the tournament, first Indian in Four Winds history to do this. Now Que is at rest, but his basketball memories and all his other accomplishments in his life will be forever in our memories and hearts.
Hit the winning shot in Heaven for us.
RIP our awesome and “Bestest Baller Ever”…Quentin “Que” Lovejoy.
