A native of Oak Hill, Love represented Fayette County in the West Virginia Legislature as a Senator from 1994-2008 and later as a member of the House of Delegates from 2016-2018.

Love was also well-known as a television and radio broadcaster in West Virginia for more than 40 years.

“I grew up watching him on TV and listening to his voice,” Gov. Justice said. “I knew him very well, and I know his family.

“Cathy and I just want to pass on our thoughts and prayers to a great family and a great West Virginian that we’ve lost.”
