Mr. King was my Superintendent and Coach at Luxora,Ar. One year we didn’t win any regular season games but won 3rd place in the tournament!! Talk about memories!!Mrs. Pat I did some Saturday babysitting for the boys when they were small. I was able to contact Mr. King years ago and thank him for all he did for us at Luxora. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Deepest condolences and prayers for the King family during this time of grief. Mr. King was a good man who loved his family and made it his life mission to make sure that they were well taken care of. For that I say job well done Mr. King…RIP
Mr. King always took the time to welcome me and visit anytime I came to England to play golf. A true gentleman. My condolences to the family and many friends…
I am so very sorry for your family’s loss. Mr. King made such an impact in England and I will always remember him for the support and kindness he exhibited.
Mr. KING, YOU CHANGED MY LIFE BY NOT LETTING ME BACK IN SCHOOL. YOUR ACTION MADE ME GROW UP AND BECOME THE MAN I AM. I WILL FOREVER BE GRATEFUL.
Lot of good times with this man. He meant a lot to Susan and me. Condolences to Mrs. Pat and Billy.
Pat and Billy, I am so sorry for your loss he was always my friend, and he will be missed by all that knew him. I had a piece of coconut cake in his honor on the night of the 18th knowing he had a big smile on his face. Prayers to all
Sincere condolences Pat and other family members.
Mr. King was a good man. A very smart man. If you knew him you couldn’t help but like him. We had some really good times playing golf with him and the crew at England CC for many years. Sending my condolences to the family.
I Enjoyed And Appreciated The (Retired) Mr. King more so than the Disciplinarian Mr. King. We had the best conversations at The Revenue Office, I didn't realize he had such a sense of humor. Prayers for Mrs. Pat & his Family.
