Mississippi mayor dies in office after only 3 months

Posted: Updated:

HOLLANDALE, Miss. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Hollandale Mayor Freddie Love died Friday at a Jackson hospital from complications of a respiratory condition. He was 67.

Love had been in office less than three months. Love was elected in a special election in January to replace late Mayor Melvin Willis Sr., who died in office in November.

Family members say Love was treated at Delta Regional Medical Center in March for pneumonia. He was transferred two weeks ago to Baptist Hospital in Jackson, where his condition worsened.

Love was the pastor of True Life Outreach Ministry in Hollandale and a former alderman.

Love is survived by his wife, Doris; six sons and four daughters.

Funeral services are pending.
