There is not a Sunday that goes by that I don't think about you. Everytime I see your family I am reminded about our friendship and that we worked together here at FBC. It is almost a year since you left us. For the Christian, to be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord. One day, I and many otherw will see you once again.
May 19, 2014
Its coming close to a year since you have been gone , but in so many ways you are not gone because of what you gave so many they give others. You knew what the big picture was .f ....Forever missed

This is so late in coming but I was thinking of my son and sports and my mind went back to when he played baseball with Orbin's son. Orbin and his wife were always friendly, encouraging and loving toward all of the team members. What a great example he was and my heart aches for the loss that his dear family suffers. May God's grace and mercy sustain you always.

Missing you, Blue!!

I was saddened to hear about the passing of Orbin. I was in High School with him and Orbin, always stuck up for me. He was a good friend, fellow basketball player and even though we lost touch over the years, I was able to talk to him a few years back, and we kind of just talked about the old days. RIP ....
September 13, 2013
To the family of Orbin. Please know we are heart broken. This great man will be missed. He was an inspiratin to many and his memory lives on in our hearts. To his children - your Father was a man of integrity and honor. We love him very much.

Orbin, Kelvin and I were neighbors, classmates, teammates, and most of all, we were friends. Orbin had a calming, cerebral,mature nature even as kids he was beyond his years . Thank you for touching my life, we should all be so lucky to have known someone like Orbin , and fo that matter, his whole family,in our lives.

Dad-
You are the best father any kid could ever ask for! I know a lot of kids say that but I mean it. Well thirteen years to get to know the loving father you were, make memories, share stories, & watch cops every Saturday night, was defiantly not long enough! Even though I know you weren't ready to go I like to look at it like, " god saw this incredible person he had made and couldn't wait to get his hands on you and meet you face to face!" I know you are in a much better place now and having a blast! Well say hi to grandma and grandpa and give them a kiss for me and also Tyler, Bandit, & Precious also! Have fun traveling the heavens in your travel sea trailer! I love and miss you forever and always in our hearts! I love you dad.
August 02, 2013
Orbin and I were in Mrs. Cahill's art class at Desert High School. I was a freshman and he was a senior. I will always remember how kind he was to me. Thanks Orbin. May your soul rest in peace.
July 31, 2013
To our family in California it took me this long and probably the rest of my life to try and understand why my cousin is gone I am here living where our Love family began and although his remains is there I feel his soul will be with all of our ancestors in bluebranch Oklahoma he was a great man and a real cousin my heart is broken but all of our Love faith shall endure
July 29, 2013
As much as I wish I could tell you Happy Birthday and give you a hug and kiss today Dad, I know your in heaven now having a better celebration than I could have ever given you on this earth. I miss you and love you always. <3 Just until we meet again! :) <3
July 29, 2013
My dear brother-in-law, how I wish we were celebrating your 52nd birthday today rather than grieving your death. The past two weeks have been filled with pain and questions that may never be answered. It just doesn't seem real that you are no longer with us here on earth. You are loved by many, and as we all move forward in life, an emptiness will remain in our family and community where you once existed. My heart is shattered and aches for my sister, nieces, and nephew, but I know you are with our heavenly Father, and the pain will lessen over time. May you rest in peace my dear brother!
July 26, 2013
You were one of the nicest, most gentle person I ever had the opportunity to meet.I had not seen Orbin since childhood, but he left an impression on me, that I wish I could have been more like him. R.I.P.
July 24, 2013
It's been some yrs since I last saw or even spoke to you ..You were more of a man than I could ever be .Thank you for helping me to believe in a dream,and your help to accomplish.I'm even more grateful to of known you .
July 24, 2013
My Prayers and heart are with you Anna and kids, you are such a precious family. He was a very special part of Fellowship Baptist. I could see
what a special man he was through Jordan and Alexis whom I had the priviledge to teach in Sunday School.

Matthew 5:9
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Sgt Love was a true peacemaker; professionally, personally and spiritually. His calm and peaceful approach to conflict was inspiring. I had many conversations with him; I always felt that he meant what he said and although I may have disagreed with his opinion, I always trusted he was honest and forthright.
Sgt. Love was genuine, sincere and thoughful; qualities to be admired in his presence and to be missed in his absence.
We have all lost a very good man and should remember to honor his legacy by striving to emulate his humility, kindness, patience, understanding and loyalty.
July 21, 2013

Since our first meeting some 25 years ago, we were always humbled by Orbin's friendship. His formidable character, unwavering integrity and unsurpassable fortitude set him far apart from the rest. His moral compass always pointed true north. He recognized greatness in others and was quick to congratulate their achievements. Yet, he also took notice of the weak, the lost souls, and the walking wounded. He made it his own life's mission to give without reservation or question. He believed such efforts proved their own reward. Through it all he never became jaded or cynical and never lost faith in humanity. He truly believed all people were inherently "good" at heart, with no "bad" guys, only bad decisions and circumstances. When we reach the heart of life, we will find ourselves no higher than the felon and no lower than the prophet. For we are all children of one God and faith, all equal in his eyes. We are all worthy of love, patience and understanding. It is noted that he who can put his finger upon that which divides good from evil is he who can touch the very hem of the garment of God. Orbin held this hem in his hands on a daily basis. He continuously placed himself and his own needs last. This was clearly evident in his personal demeanor and behavior, nothing short of remarkable on any scale. He was a true "King" amongst men, standing "head and shoulders" above the masses. Big "O" always gave generously of himself, and his legacy of love, faith and philanthropy will live on forever more. Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need. I only wish you would have "taken" just a little bit more for yourself Orbin. I wish you never felt any suffering. You deserved only happiness. Sadness is but a frail wall between two magnificent gardens. Perhaps when we are sorrowful we should look again into our heart, and we shall see that in truth we are weeping for that which has actually been our delight. The reality of another person is not in what he reveals to you, but in what he cannot reveal to you. Therefore, if you would understand him, listen not to what he says, but rather to what he does NOT say. Silence always speaks louder than words. You cannot judge any man beyond your knowledge of him, and how small is your knowledge? I will remember you, Orbin, always, as I last saw you. Dressed neatly in your suited attire, sitting across from me, happily connecting and recounting our commonalities while eating a vending snack treat, laughing, dreaming, and living. Please know your friendship and kindness never once went unnoticed. You will be treasured forever and cherished throughout eternity. May your children continue in your admirable footsteps and carry your legacy throughout the remainder of their lives. May your laughter echo across our memories, and your shadow never fade from our sunset. Be well our friend and rest in peace.

For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind
and to melt into the sun?
And what is it to cease breathing,
but to free the breath from its restless tides,
that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?
Only when you drink from the river of silence
shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top,
then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs,
then shall you truly dance.

- Kahlil Gibran, from The Prophet

Orbin understood nirvana existed in leading the young sheep in his flock safely into greener and better pastures, in tucking his children safely into bed each night and finally in writing the last line of his own story. He'll be a story in our head, but that's okay, because we're all stories in the end. Just make It a good one, eh? Because it was, you know. It was the best.
July 21, 2013
So very safe to hear of Orbin's passing. What a great guy. I feel honored to have known and worked with/near him many times when I was with Kern Co. Environmental health-Hazmats. I know he will be missed by many. Thoughts and prayers to all of his family and friends. Mike Driggs

It is a blessing to know Orbin! I had the honor of attending CSUB with Orbin and I can honestly say he exhibited the same spirit back then. He had a way of bringing out the best in others and a smile that would light up any room. Our hearts and prayers go out to the family. He will truly be missed.
July 19, 2013
It was always a pleasure working with Orbin. He truly loved and cared about the children in our school system here in Bakersfield. Just recently Orbin, representing Bakersfield Police Department and I, representing the District Attorneys' Office spoke at a school rally and marched around the campus with the children to kick off their "Just Say No to Drugs" campaign. We will miss you Officer Love. You are NOW ETERNALLY out of the reach of any Demons! Hallelujah and victory for you Orbin. May GOD bless and keep the family. May each of you rest in the comfort of his arms and find peace in GOD's promises.
July 19, 2013
Praying for peace and comfort for your family. I remember him from 20+ years ago when I used to dispatch for BPD. So sorry for your loss.
July 19, 2013

I was privileged enough to meet Orbin Love and be welcomed into his home several times. I will forever be thankful that I had the opportunity to witness the love and devotion he had for his entire family; and the genuine kindness and compassion he showed myself and the rest of the world that were fortunate enough to find ourselves in his company.
July 18, 2013
What a sad time to see a great man leave us. He made a great 1st impression and I will not forget it.
July 18, 2013
My condolences to the entire family. You are one of the best reasons growing up at Edwards so great. The entire family always had that beautiful Love smile on their faces that brought joy to the lives and days of everyone they touched. Thank you. Thank you Orbin Sr. for everything you did for all of us. You have no idea what it meant to us all.
July 18, 2013
Orbin was the sweetest person I have ever know. He was humble, selfless and full of love. Being around Orbin made me want to be a better person. He had a peacefulness about him that could touch anyone. I have been completely blessed to have known him and to have learned from him. You will be deeply missed Orbin but I know you are looking down on us and have found peace.
July 18, 2013
Orbin you were such a kind and caring soul. I will miss you and your smile. It was truly a privilege to know you and work with you. My deepest condolences to the Love family.
July 18, 2013
I consider myself blessed to have a friend and coworker like Orbin and I could always count on his big smile and kind words to brighten my day. I have known Orbin for two decades and I have always admired Orbin as the epitome of a family and Christian man. While I was happy to see him promote out of our office, I knew I was going to miss those frequent conversations about our children as well as his always encouraging words and demeanor. He literally shined from within when he talked about his wife, Anna, and their children, Kami, Emily, Jordan, and Alexis, and he was so proud of each of them. He was always caring and considerate, such a gentleman, and someone I could confide in and trust. Orbin touched many lives and he certainly touched my life. May God comfort the family with memories of good times and the knowledge he loved them so.
July 18, 2013
Bakersfield has lost a great law enforcement officer. Dedicated, honest, fair, and possessing a true moral compass.
July 18, 2013
I feel privileged and honored to have met and crossed paths with Orbin. A truly inspirational individual. The world has lost a true Saint.
July 18, 2013
I'm here, Orbin. It was this time last year that I came home to look after you ... And God saw YOU through that. Now a year later, I have come back home to look after you again ... And this time ... God will see ME through it! I love you and I will cherish you for ever. Give mom and Monica a hug from me.
July 18, 2013
Our prayers go out to CHP Anna Love and children Jordan & Alexis.....Our daughters played NJB together and Anna was their fearless coach. We will miss Sgt Love beautiful smile and joking spirit. What a wonderful Father and community leader! Much Love from The Spears Family.

July 17, 2013
Though rivals on the football fields of the DIL, we became friends in the weight rooms of Bakersfield in much younger days. Orbin's smile and graciousness were always the perfect reflection of who he was as a man. Regardless of how long we had gone without seeing each other, every happenstance meeting in the community was as if we had never missed a day. Humble, kind, friendly, and caring are all characteristics that I will forever remember when I think of Orbin.
July 17, 2013

July 17, 2013
Sgt. Love exemplified the meaning of his name - LOVE. He was unselfish, loyal, and displayed genuine concern for the good of another. It was an honor working for such a remarkable man. His memory will forever be in my heart. Love Family, you are in our thoughts and prayers.
July 17, 2013
You prayed, advised, led and encouraged us, your adult students at Stine Road Baptist, and then went on to become the Youth Pastor when it became Fellowship...and made such an impact on so many! You prayed for "my boys," and encouraged me when I would question, and lift me up with your kind words. Now I pray for your family, Anna and your beautiful children, Orbin. My heart goes out to Anna and the kids, to all your family. Rest in the Father's arms, until we meet again, beloved friend.
July 17, 2013
Sending our condolences to family and friends........his quiet and strong nature and his devotion to God and duty will be sorely missed, but always remembered.......RIP

July 17, 2013
Sgt Love was a great person, leader, father, husband and friend. I worked with you for eighteen years and learned so much. You are now walking the beat in heaven and looking over your family friends and coworkers keeping us safe. You will be missed. My heart and prayers go out to his wonderful family
July 17, 2013
I worked with Orbin for many years and never saw the man get angry or grin. I will only remember him with his smile. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 "For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words." Because of this I know I will see you again someday faithful Brother in Christ Jesus.
July 17, 2013

July 17, 2013
I had the privilege of taking care of Sgt. Love at Bakersfield Family Med Center for several years before I moved on to a new job. He was the sweetest man, had a quiet grace that made me feel better, when it was my job to make him feel better. My thoughts go to his family at this sad time.
July 17, 2013
It is with deep regret that we have just heard of the passing away of Orbin. He was always a very kind man, well loved and respected. Our heart felt prayers are expressed toward the family. May the peace of God through our Lord Jesus Christ be in your presence during this very difficult time.

With Love and Respect,

I Thessalonians Chapter 4:13-18

Orbin Love has been a friend of mine for many years. He has been an active leader at our church, teaching Sunday School, serving on committees, and recently being our youth pastor. Orbin was well respected by all who knew him. Many of us who had teenagers or young adults with problems went to Orbin for advice. He was always willing to offer his help and solid counsel. Our people will miss him and what he has done for our church and our youth. Some of the work that he has done will be seen in changed lives for years to come. He always had a smile and kind word for everyone he met. Orbin Love was truly a man of God.
July 17, 2013
I will always remember Orbin as my Advisor from when I was a BPD Explorer, he was the niceset sweetest man I had ever met. I will pray for your family that God brings you confort in such a hard time.
July 17, 2013
My very first contact with Orbin was about twenty years ago when I went on my first ride a long at BPD. He was very kind and showed me many things out in our community. He inspired me to become an officer. Having been an officer at BPD for eighteen years, I had the privledge to work for him on many shifts. He was a kind gentle soul. Many were touched by him including myself. He will be missed dearly. My prayers are with the Love family. God bless.
July 17, 2013
Orbin was an amazing Man and Father.He was so so devoted to his children. I know that he will be missed by so many. My heart is breaking for Anna and the kids. Our prayers will forever be with you guys. Orbin's legacy will live on in so many of the young people that he influenced with his love and humongous heart.
July 17, 2013
Our hearts and prayers go out to Orbin's family. He was an amazing man of God and friend to our family. Our memories of his spirit and words of wisdom are endless. We will continue to pray for his family and for God's comfort. Mark, Loretta, Mark Jr. and Aaron.
July 17, 2013
Rest in peace Sgt. Love. I've never worked for a boss like you, always with a smile on your face and always reminded people, "today is a good day because you woke up". I never saw you upset, you always listened and did whatever you could to help others. I learned a lot from you, and am greatful to have work for you. May The Lord ease this painful time for your family and be with them.
July 17, 2013
I remember the first time I saw "O" come through the back door of "BPD". He had the biggest smile on his face. God gave him his good nature and loving soul. I'm sure he's looking down upon us with that smile, another star lights the heavens...RIP/Brother.
July 17, 2013
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Anna and the Love family. Orbin was a good man who will be greatly missed. I'll never forget being knocked off my feet by him setting a pick in basketball, then having him extend a hand to help me up. That was him, both strong and gentle. I'll miss him.
July 17, 2013
When we first met.....27 years ago
I did not know the impact 
you would have on my life...even today. 
You taught me perseverance, strength and Loyalty ....when others just wanted me to break. 
Yes, you were my "rock" when we were in the academy together...
As I'm certain you were the "rock" for many more Over your many years of service. 
You left this world to travel to a place of calm ..Where the burden of your pain has diminished. Now Your soul floats freely among us and above us.
My heart is deeply saddened with your passing....and I will forever speak your name with loud praises. Orbin Love, I hold your memory with love and deep respect.
July 17, 2013
Orbin was always smiling and always in a great mood all the times me and him talked. He was truly a genuine man inside and out and always represented the police dept with great pride and dignity.I have known Orbin for many of years and this is a big loss because it is not everyday you meet an outstanding man such as Orbin. R.I.P brother you will not be forgotten.
July 17, 2013
I love you big brother. Because we are 11 months apart, when I celebrate a birthday, we are the same age for a month ... well Blue, this year we'll get to be the same age for 11 months. I love and miss you, your little brother, Flash.
July 17, 2013
A True Gentle Man !
July 17, 2013

July 17, 2013
To The Family of Orbin Love....
My heart is broken with grief as I pray each day for you, his family, for God to give you strength/comfort as you grow through this most difficult time. I praise God each day for placing Orbin in my life-path and for God allowing him to teach me the art of walking through a day with a peaceful "aura."
And to you God..... I thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing this most awesome man with us at church and in life.

Blessings all around you/yours.....

Orbin truly was a gentleman, respectful and God honoring. Our loss is heaven's gain.
July 17, 2013
We first met Orbin while our boys played sports together. Orbin's smile was contagious and his kind heart was seen by many. This world was a better place because of Orbin and the heart that he shared with everyone he came in contact with. He will truly be missed. Sending our deepest sympathy to the Love family.

I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written:

“Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?”

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. (1 Corinthians 15:50-58, ESV)

Orbin was one of the nicest and truly genuine person that I have ever met. He always had a kind word and a smile. It is a joy to know that he was so involved with his church, community and family. It's also a comfort to know that he is now at home with his Lord and Savior in the kingdom of heaven. Orbin, you will be truly missed.

I met Mr. and Mrs. Love at Liberty High School at the track meets of their children and my nephews. Mr. Love undoubtedly loved his family. He was so proud of his children and their accomplishments. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. The Love Family have my deepest sympathy.
July 17, 2013
Orbin was such a joy at Fellowship, now he is a greater joy in Heaven. I feel God needed him more than we needed him and called him home. Prayers go to his family. We will so miss the bear hugs he was capable of. Rest in peace our friend Orbin. You will be truly missed.

I will always remember Orbin with a smile. His love of God and his precious family were evident to all. Although his time with us was all too brief, his positive influence will live on. I am so glad I had the privilege of knowing him.
July 17, 2013
What a blessing to have you as a friend to our family and a mentor to our boys. While heaven is a touch sweeter for your arrival, on earth, your presence will be forever missed.
July 17, 2013
I only met Mr. Love through my work at his youngest daughter's school. I watched him devote 5 days to camping with a huge group of 6th graders. He did so with a quiet passion that exemplified to Alexis and all those around his love and devotion to her. I am sorry for the loss of Orbin here, but look forward with great joy to us all reuniting in Heaven one day. I look forward to watching Alexis continue to grow into a beautiful woman of God and am grateful to have been able to have met the gentle giant, Orbin.

Prayers continue for the hearts in need of healing in this time of great loss. Orbin was one of the kindest men I ever worked with at the BPD. He was a rarity among men in general. My heart still hurts for all of us who had the opportunity to know him, work with him, & love him.

July 16, 2013
Words can't describe how much i'll miss you. You were a beautiful person inside and out and there was never a moment that i felt unloved by you. I admired you for the person you were to your family. You were a great uncle to me and a great brother to my mother. Although unexpected, I know my grandmother is happy to greet her baby boy in heaven and kiss and soothe away any pain you felt here on earth. I love you and i'll miss you forever.

We remember when we first merged with Stine Road Baptist and met Orbin. He was so friendly and had a big smile on his face. Our son went to his youth group and Sunday School class until he graduated High School. He really like him and his class. Our hearts are broken for you all and we pray for peace at this time.
Blessings to you,

I was deeply saddened when I received the news that the Love and Hudson families are once again suffering a great loss. I am sorry about the reason that I I was able to visit with "Junior" for the last time, however, I am thankful that I did get to visit with him once again. I had not seen my cousin since we were children. I know that our families will get through this because the power of our Lord and Savior will give us strength and courage. My thoughts and prayers are with Anna, Orbin, and the whole family. Kelvin, I am continuing to pray for God to give you strength, because I know that you will be speaking over your brother at his homegoing celebration. I am so sorry that I cannot be with you all during this monumental moment in your lives, but always know that I am praying for each of you, and you each are holding a special place in my heart that only family could hold.

Your cousin,

Anita Gresham

To The Family of Orbin Love, Jr.;
I first met Orbin when I came on staff at Fellowship Baptist Church, Bakersfield. We began to dream of the future for our youth. His heart was as big as he was. He breathed nothing but the best for each of our young people. His influence on their lives was in many of them a Dad, Uncle, big brother and friend. His kids adored their Dad. May God be a Husband to Anna and a Father to Camey, Emily, Jordon and Alexis. May God's richest blessings exhaust themselves on all of them so there is none left for anyone else. That's just how much He loves them. Meet you at the Throne of God, brother!
July 16, 2013
To the family of Orbin Love. Our hearts our broken along with you. It has been a privilege to serve alongside our dear friend and brother in Christ, Orbin Love.

We deeply miss him. We are here for his family. We pray constantly for you. If there is anything we can do. Please let us know. Pastor Rick Prevost (Fellowship Baptist Church Family).
