Audy Love III
Audy A. Love III, aged 80 years, of Moody passed away peacefully with his family by his side on the afternoon of June 21, 2018 at the VA hospital in Temple. He was born on the 28th day of January 1938 in Pilot Point, Texas to Audy and Gladys (Weber) Love.
Audy was a veteran of the United States Air Force having served his country proudly from 1957 to 1961. He was a true patriot in every sense of the word. Love was not only his name but it was the best way to describe Audy’s life. He loved unconditionally. Audy was a friend that you could turn to when you needed someone to talk to and he always had a compassionate ear to listen. He loved animals both big and small and was also known to love the sound of a distant passing train. He always took an interest in train locomotives and the workings of the railroad.
Audy married Freda Kirkland in Axtell, Texas and together they would spend 38 years side by side until he was called home. He was a member of The Well in Moody, Texas and had received an Associate’s Degree from McLennan Community College during his earlier years. Audy and Freda have been residents of Moody for the past 23 years.
He is preceded in death by his parents Audy and Gladys.

Audy also leaves to cherish his memory his 36 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren and to many friends to count.
