Larry E. Love, 73, of Holly Pond, entered into the presence of our Lord and Savior on Sunday, July 29, 2018. He was born February 2, 1945 to Clarence and Vera Preston Love.

Mr. Love served his country three years in the United States Navy. He was a Vietnam veteran and we are grateful for his sacrifice for our freedom. Larry provided for his family as a construction superintendent.  He was employed with Stewart & Perry.  He was a member of Union Grove Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and a proud member of the Holly Pond Broncos class of 1963. Larry never missed a reunion. Larry was also a loyal Alabama football fan.
