Sadly, we share the passing of Dr. Fred William Love. A friend of the DBHS, Dr. Love was born in Delray in 1922. His Great Uncle, Reverend John Cason Sr. was a community leader and Methodist minister. He and his wife built and lived in "Cason Cottage" in 1924. Cason Cottage Historic House Museum, on our campus, is devoted to the preservation of Delray Beach History. For more info:
