COLD SPRING, N.Y. -- Finn Lovell wants his late dad to be remembered as a supportive father and family man, and not a victim.

Jim Lovell was an independent contractor who frequently worked as an audio technician for NBC's "Today Show". He was headed to the city to prep for the Christmas tree lighting ceremony when the train he was traveling on derailed Sunday morning, killing him.
Lovell left behind three sons, Finn, Jack and Hudson, his daughter Brooke, and his wife, Nancy Montgomery.
Finn recalled, "She came into my room with my brothers and said, 'he's gone.'
It was tragic news for the entire tight-knit community in Cold Spring. Jim grew up there, raised his family there, and spent the majority of his life giving back.
"Nobody could say a bad word about him and he never said a bad word about anybody. It's a fact, he was a really good guy," remembered John Zuvic.
Lovell will be remembered by many as they prepare to say their final goodbyes to a man known for always wearing a smile
Finn added, "We are all torn apart and broken hearted but we have to be strong for each other. If we're strong we can get through it together."
