GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

We at WLOX have lost a member of our founding broadcast family. John Hash, who was President of Love Broadcasting back in the 80s and 90s, has passed away after a lengthy battle with bladder cancer.

John had a passion for education and making sure our children got the best education possible. And he shared that passion with all of us. He spent 13 years on the Gulfport School Board and for many years served as president of that board.

He came to WLOX in 1976, and spent the next 20 years guiding our station with a vision for the future that helped create the WLOX we are today. He was not only our boss, but our mentor and friend. He will be missed.

John was born in 1944 in Camden, South Carolina. He received his undergraduate degree at Davidson College in North Carolina and earned his MBA at University of Virginia. He and his wife, Frances Boyd Hash, moved to Montana following Hurricane Katrina. He was an avid traveler and fisherman.

John Hash is survived by his wife and three daughters, Rebecca Hash, Katherine Thames and Lauren Bell, stepdaughter Elizabeth Boyd, stepson Bill Boyd and 11 grandchildren. He is predeceased in death by his first wife, Mary.
