Marcus "Eddie" Truelove, 60, passed away unexpectedly at his home on November 26, 2017. Eddie was born in Wake County, NC on January 15, 1957 to the late Marcus William Truelove and Hilda Smith Truelove.

Eddie was the owner and operator of Truelove Auto Repair for over 21 years. He will always be remembered for being a true neighbor, dear friend, his kindness, and would "give you the shirt off his back kinda guy". Always willing to lend a hand no matter what time of day or night it was and kept a funny sense of humor and smile whenever he was around. He will greatly be missed by all.
