Charley Truman Love

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, Ga. He and his family relocated to Ocoee, Fl. in 1959; making Central Florida his home until 2018. He and his wife, Mary, relocated to Lyons, Ga 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 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 of Lyons, Ga; his children, Norma Love of Apopka, Denise Love of Apopka, and William Shoup of Orange City; his grandchildren, Charley Love of Apopka, Kale Shoup of Orange City, and KinleyRae Shoup of Orange City; and his siblings, Elaine Wiggins of Lyons, Ga, Douglas Love of Ocala, Jerry Love of Vidalia, Ga, Jimmy Love of Vidalia, Ga, Dan Love of Punta Gorda, Debbie Womack of Vidalia, Ga, and Pat Beverly of Lyons, Ga.

Gathering of family and friends will be Friday, January 31, 2020 from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm at River City Church DeBary. Celebration of Shine’s life will begin at 4:00pm.
