A Tribute to
Dr. William Loveless
It is with deepest sadness we share with you that on the morning of September 15, 2014, Dr. William Loveless passed away, bringing an end to decades of passionate service to God and others. Dr. Loveless served on the leadership team of LLBN as a board member and was also a mentor, confidante, brother and father-figure to many of those involved. His compassion, passion, wisdom and faith had a tremendous impact on all he came into contact with. He always saw people for their potential as long as they were willing to make a difference. LLBN would not be where it is today were it not for this giant of a man who stood behind this ministry and its mission from the very beginning and believed in it when few others did.
In addition to being on the LLBN board and that of various other organizations, Bill served as the Pastor of Sligo Adventist Church (1957-1970), Senior Pastor of Loma Linda University Church (1970-1976 & 1990-2000), President of the Pennsylvania Conference (1976-1978), President of Columbia Union College (1978-1990), Professor at La Sierra University (1990-1994), Professor for the LLU Faculty of Religion (1990-2000), and Professor in the Department of Educational Services and Behavioral Science Section for LLU School of Dentistry (August 13, 2000-September 20, 2013). He also had a marriage and family therapy practice for several years.
To watch "Concept with Dr. Willial Loveless", a series drawn on his rich experience as a marriage and family therapist addressing relationship and family issues ranging from boundaries, communication, divorce and remarriage, see the following options:
LLBN will air an official announcement on September 20 before the Week in Review which airs after the first and second church services. A longer tribute will be aired on September 27 during the actual Week in Review. Also on September 27 at 4:30 pm (PT) LLBN will be airing a 30 minute Special Presentation that will be replayed on Sunday, September 28 at 9:30 am (PT).
A memorial service will be held at the Loma Linda University Church on Sunday, September 28, 2014 at 2:00 pm (Pacific time), and will be broadcasted live on LLBN.
We thank God for the incredible opportunity He gave LLBN to work with Bill and to learn from him. We look forward to the day when we will be reunited with him when Christ returns, but till then, we will miss him dearly.
Please join us in keeping his family in our prayers.
