Loye London passed away November 28, 2017.  He was born September 1, 1932 in Tulsa, OK.  He was surrounded by his loving wife, Phyllis.  He was a Korean war Veteran.  He went on the Honor Flight in September 2016 and while at the Korean Memorial four young Korean men from Seoul thanked him.  It was a proud moment for Loye.  Loye retired from JC PENNEY. He is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Phyllis; daughters, Nannette and Gayanne and five grandchildren.  He loved golfing and was a member of New Covenant United Methodist Church.  A private military service will be held at Florida National Cemetery at a later date. It was his wish that family, friends, and golfing buddies remember the many fun times.  Donations may be made to the Honor Flight.  Online condolences may be sent to www.baldwincremation.com.

    For some reason I was thinking of you today and decided to google Loye’s name. I was so saddened to see he has passed away. I have nothing but very nice memories of both of you. When Rowland came on at JCP you took me under your wing and made me feel at home when we were together. You and I had such fun together as well. I believe it was Gayanne who was our original babysitter for John. I also remember that on at least one occasion Loye delivered her to our house to do the babysitting. So many memories to reflect on. I’m sure they give you comfort now.
    I have been remarried for the last 12 years, and moved back to Tennessee. If this message reaches you, and you so desire, my email is pfwilson@charter.net.
    Sincerely, Phyllis Funk Wilson

    Shortly after joining JCP in December1967, Loye, based in Atlanta, generously indoctrinated me into the JCP Culture and that of the Auditing Department. Loye was like a brother in many ways. And, Phyllis was always his super supportive helpmate and mother..
    He demonstrated his beliefs that Auditing should be a participative partner with Store Operation and not an adversary. Jack Jackson once told me that it was so nice that Auditing finally joined the Penney Company. Thanks Loye, you were so right!
    Loved you Brother, Chuck Brown.

    Loye was a great friend. I trained with him in St Louis for two weeks when I started my career with JCP. I had the pleasure of giving him his 50 year pin, just a couple of years ago at one of our HCSC chapter meetings in Florida. When John Biglow, his wife and mine were in Atlanta one time he loaned us one of the Company cars for the weekend to tour the city.

    Loye was a great friend and co-worker while at JCPenney. A perfect gentleman in all aspects. Phyllis and Loye made one great team. Will be sorely missed by Lana and myself. Prayers to his family; a true pleasure to know Loye.

    Loye London was a silent giant who revealed his faith by his actions: a smile, a handshake or a hug. All who knew him considered themselves his best friend. Peace to all.

    I’ve known Loye for the past 30 years or so. We met when we were both working for JCPenney in different in different positions. I’ve always known Loyle to be a complete gentleman and he was well respected in the company. In later years after retirement I always enjoyed seeing him at the JCPenney retiree gatherings in Florida. My condolences go out to his entire family, he will be missed!

    My Uncle Loye was always smiling. When I was little, I used to run away on my stick horse because I wanted to live with my Uncle Loye and Aunt Phyllis. As a little girl, they were the people who were never down, never sad, and you could never do anything wrong. Spoke with Uncle Loye just before the hurricane earlier this year and of course, he was confident that all was going to be well. He was so upbeat and sure that all would be well, and it was. Love you Uncle Loye.

    I met Loye about 2 1/2 years ago, when I moved to The Villages, and joined his golf group. A real gentleman, and truly a great person. I am honored to have known Loye, and I am honored to have called him my friend.
    Rest in Peace Loye, and be with your Lord.
