Charley Truman Love, July 7, 1945 – January 24, 2020
Charley “Shine” Love, devoted husband, dad, papa, brother, uncle, and faithful friend to many, in a most peaceful and loving way, went Home to be with his Lord and Savior on January 24, 2020.
Shine was born to Jethro and Katie Love on July 7, 1945 in Uvalda, Georgia. He and his family relocated to Ocoee, Florida, in 1959, making Central Florida his home until 2018. He and his wife, Mary, relocated to Lyons, Georgia for most of this last year to renovate their home there and spend time with Shine’s siblings and their families.
In 1967 Shine went to work in the HVAC industry where he remained until retiring from Gemaire Distributors in 2018. His most favorite interest was spending time with his family and friends. He also enjoyed fishing, hunting, and being outdoors working and enjoying all of God’s splendor. Shine lived to serve the Lord in a multitude of ways that included being a compassionate caregiver for family members and advocate to everyone that crossed his path. His pride and joy were his three miraculous children and grandchildren. Shine embraced and loved his life in every way. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and dog, Lily.
Shine was preceded in death by his parents, James Jethro and Katie Leona Love. He is survived by his wife, Mary Shoup Love; his children, Norma Love, Denise Love and William Shoup; his grandchildren, Charley Love, Kale Shoup and KinleyRae Shoup; and his siblings, Elaine Wiggins, Douglas Love, Jerry Love, Jimmy Love, Dan Love, Debbie Womack and Pat Beverly.
