On Thursday, June 20, 2019, God in His infinite wisdom called to eternal rest our beloved Laverne “Lee” Love. He was born on February 18, 1963 in Lumberton, NC to the late Martha Ray Love.
Lee attained his education and graduated from Lumberton Senior High School. He furthered his education at Job Corp for four years. He was employed by Jensen Manufacturing in Lumberton, NC.
