Orbin Clarence Love, Jr. 7/29/1961-7/13/2013 Beloved husband, father, brother, and devoted man of God. Preceded by mother, Betty Love and sister, Monica Love. Survived by wife, Anna; four children: Kami (25), Emily (21), Jordan (14), and Alexis (13); father, Orbin C. Love, Sr.; siblings: Berrenda Love-Lewis (Mark), Rev. Kelvin Love, Sr. (Trudy), Michele Trapani, and Christina Foster (Marco); as well as many nieces, nephews, and other family. Taken suddenly by a medical demon, his love and humility has touched so many, but Orbin truly had so much more to give. He will forever be missed by family, friends, neighbors, fellow-church members, and co-workers. He will be remembered for: his endless devotion to God (member, Sunday school teacher, and Youth Pastor for Fellowship Baptist Church); and 27 years of service to the community as officer, detective, and sergeant for the Bakersfield Police Department. Funeral service held Friday, July 19th at Valley Baptist Church at 10AM followed by graveside service at Hillcrest Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Bakersfield P.A.L. Center in Orbin's memory; contact Police Activities League Senior Officer, Kyle Ursery 661-283-8880. "Then I saw all that God has done. No one can comprehend what goes on under the sun. Despite all his efforts to search it out, man cannot discover its meaning. Even if a wise man claims he knows, he cannot really comprehend it." Ecclesiastes 8:17 www.bakersfield.com/obits
