My deepest sympathies to the entire Love family. l got to know Jim the past several years as he was the person I called for any plumbing issues with various client's homes that I was selling. He was always so helpful and responded no matter what time of day it was. Jim was truly a good person. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word to say. He will be missed.

Sending my thoughts and prayers to the Love Family. So many school memories involve Jim-such a big flirt! He was even my Sometimes Boyfriend! He had a larger than life personality, always a good "spearin" story and very funny. Kept many of us laughing. Always remember his smile. Heaven certainly gained an Angel-the edges of his wings may have been a bit worn from his orneriness but truly a "big man with an even Bigger Heart".

Love to You All,

I was very saddened to hear of Jim’s passing. I remember him helping Valerie and I when her car wouldn’t start. He knew just what the problem was. We were so grateful.

I also remember how kind you were to me when we worked together. Thank you for that.

I’m a fellow classmate of Jim’s from FHS 1982. He was a funny guy!! He was a big teddy bear with a big heart. Always enjoyed watching him play football 🏈 and listen to his fishing stories. May you RIP James A Love ❤️

I used to work at The Waterfront Bistro, Jim and a lady and gentleman came in for lunch quite often.
One day as they were leaving, I noticed he had plumbing on the side of his truck and I just happened to need someone to work on my sink and the bathtub was leaking. I had several people come and try to help. All for free and all unsuccessful at their attempts. I explained to Jim my financial situation and told him I wouldn’t be able to pay him right then but I needed help. He told me to call and he would be happy to help. I was so shocked that he was so quick to be willing to give me his expert opinion and actually take time from his day to help me knowing I had no idea how to pay him at the time! What a kind gesture from someone I didn’t even really know! I’m sure owning a plumbing business, someone always needs something fixed, my dad was a contractor so I know the drill. At that point, I liked the guy so much that I couldn’t bring myself to ask him to work for me, a stranger, but I know if I had called his number he gave me that day, he would’ve been there. A rarity! I am so sad to hear of his passing. The world would be a better place with more people like him in it!
My deepest sympathy to all of his friends and family. I’m truly blessed to have just crossed his path. I’ll remember him always. I still don’t have the leak in the tub fixed or the sink but it was just the way he reacted that made it such a great experience. RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS CAN CHANGE A PERSONS LIFE!

My memory of Jim is many what a kind hearted person ever. He would come into the The Uncorn Shop to get his hair cut. I would counter spiders or just plain hot and him taken his shirt off before I washed his hair and layed back in the bowl before I got cape on just shirt less 😮 and for some reason Carla snuck her head around and told Karen, Deana,Angie, I had a half naked man in shampoo bowl lol But that was Jim God bless him 😇
