LINCOLNTON, NC Edgar Love III died Wednesday, October 14, 2009, as a result of complications from a brain tumor.

He was born in Lincolnton, North Carolina, on June 8, 1931, to Elizabeth Reinhardt Love and Edgar Love Jr.

His grandparents were Katherine McLean Love and Edgar Love, and Lelia Rendelman Reinhardt and James Morrison Reinhardt.

In 1948, he graduated from Lincolnton High School and in 1952 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was co-president of Phi Beta Kappa and a member of the Order of the Golden Fleece. He was also a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Leeds, England.

In 1959, Mr. Love graduated from Harvard Law School after serving as a Lieutenant in the US Navy.

In 1959 he joined Kennedy Covington Lobdell and Hickman (now K & L Gates) where he practiced law for more than 40 years, first in litigation with his mentors, W. T. Covington Jr. and Hugh Lobdell, and later in international practice.

In 1963, he met Penelope Warren Dunn at the Camden Cup, and they were married in Winston-Salem in 1965.

As a member of the Mecklenburg Bar Association, he served as president, and was on the NC Bar Association Board of Governors where his particular interest was continuing legal education.

A lifelong obsession was his participation in the renovation of his parents' house, Magnolia Grove, an 1820s historic property in Iron Station, Lincoln County, which they had restored and lived in for 30 years.

He had a strong affection for the state of North Carolina and especially for Lincoln County, Chapel Hill, and Linville.

He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Penelope Warren Dunn Love; his daughters, Elizabeth Love Maddrey (Winn), Penelope Love Aluise (Edward), and Barbara Love Climer (George); his sister, Elizabeth Love Smith; his brother, Dr. James McLean Love; and his niece, Barbara Love Browne and her family of West Palm Beach, Florida.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his sister, Barbara Love Rapp.

He is also survived by his six grandchildren, Alexander McLean Maddrey, Penelope Steele Climer, Charles Love Aluise, Hughes Burgess Maddrey, John Bowman Aluise, and Evelyn Love Climer. He enjoyed every minute he spent with his grandchildren.

He is also survived by his sister-in-law, Elizabeth Dunn Sprague (John), and his brother-in-law, Frank Hughes Dunn (Margaret).

Private burial was held on Friday at Hollybrook Cemetery, Lincolnton. His memorial service was held at 3 pm on Monday, October 19, at First Presbyterian Church in Charlotte.
