Loveless was born in Lafayette and was a resident of Abbeville. He loved working on any type of appliance. He loved to tell corny jokes and spending time with his family. He loved to play the lottery and scratch offs. He was an avid fan of the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team. He enjoyed watching Me TV and old westerns. He never met a stranger and was selfless and humble in lending a hand to anyone in need. Last, but not least, he was affectionately known as “Poppee” by his three children who absolutely adored and loved him. Surrounded by his family, Loveless John Green, Sr. humbly answered the call of the Lord in the comforts of his home. Loveless was a hard-working, family man who was very dedicated to his craft of being a Service Technician—servicing and repairing appliances. “If it was broken, he could definitely fix it.” He was not only a family man, but a son, husband, father, uncle, nephew and cousin who always took care of his family no matter what.
