RALEIGH – William David Love, age 79, passed peacefully on November 17, 2018 surrounded by his family. He is survived by his wife and sweetheart of 51 years, Linda Johnson Love.

He is survived by four brothers, Elvin (Jackie), Melvin (Gwyn), Tommie (Marilyn) and Gene (Elizabeth) Love and many nieces, nephews and family. He was preceded in death by his parents, John Cader and Rosie Blackmon Love.

He enjoyed spending time with his family and many friends and was inspired and uplifted by them. He was gifted with all things mechanical, loved motorcycles and nature. He loved everyone and was loved by all.

William graduated from Cleveland High School in 1958 and honorably served his country in the US Army from 1958 – 1964. He retired from the NC State Government as Director of Motor Fleet Management with over 30 years of service.
