Tim Love Obituary, Death – Timothy Dean Love lost his battle with multiple myeloma on March 25, 2023. He had been ill with the disease for 14 years. On February 22, 1951, Carl Edwin and Gene Elizabeth Brown Love welcomed their first child, Carl Edwin Brown Love, into the world in Richmond, Indiana. After beginning his career as a music educator in 1973 at the Centerville-Abington Community Schools, he went on to work at the Richmond Community Schools and the Northeastern Wayne Schools before coming out of early retirement to start the band program at the Seton Catholic Schools.
In total, he spent 43 years in the field of education, teaching music in various capacities. After suffering the loss of both of his parents before he was 18, Tim honed in on a work ethic of “never say die.” He spent every summer of his education working at the Wayne Works school bus manufacturing so that he could graduate from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music without any student loan debt. On July 14, 1973, Tim married Holly Anne Holmes, and shortly after their wedding, he launched his career as a musician. Tim was an accomplished trumpeter who played in a variety of ensembles, including church services, dancing bands, brass choruses, and quintets.
Teaching, on the other hand, was where he found his genuine vocation. Tim became well known as a renowned music instructor who had a significant impact on the musical development of a great number of pupils outside of the classroom. Nobody could take his exemplary acts of compassion and love for granted since they shone so brightly.Tim and Holly visited Ireland and Hawaii before they retired, and they had several holidays with their children on Siesta Key, which is located in Florida. Tim enjoyed playing golf, instructing beginning band students in the neighborhood, and most importantly, spending time with his children, grandchildren, and extended family after he retired.
His wife of 49 years, Holly Holmes Love, his son Terry Carl Love and daughter Sarah Elizabeth Scholl, his daughter’s husband Adam Scholl, his grandchildren Nolan Timothy Scholl, Natalie Grace Scholl, and Nicholas James Scholl, as well as his mother-in-law and father-in-law, will all be saddened by his passing.
