Well, Orbin... If you were here, I'd have sought you out by now to tell you that I am not a football fan. For me, football was always a social event... show up, look cute, wear a rooter ribbon and cheer for my team (EB, Class of '64 and/or BC, Class of '66). Now, all these years later, I'm being "forced" to watch the game. Why? Because, I WANT to support our local guys in the NFL. The one I'm most excited about this year is Jordan. It's pre-season, he's hurt his shoulder, but I'm praying for healing and a chance for him to show up! Of course, I KNOW you can't read this, but oddly.... I feel better for having written it. Sure miss you, Orbin. That certain look, that twinkle in your eye when you'd crack a smile. You should still be here, of course, but since you aren't I'll just say that you are missed.

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.

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.

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 ....

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.

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!

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.

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.
Greg, Lisa & Hanna Jehle.

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.

You will be deeply missed Orbin but I know you are looking down on us and have found peace.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
