Sept. 29, 1953 – Oct. 8, 2022
October 19, 2022
David Edward King, 69, of Sweet Home, died Oct. 8, 2022, after a fall.
He was born Sept. 29, 1953 in Oakland, Calif., to John and Sue Ann (Rohrman) King.
Following school, he served in the United States Army. While serving, he met a Jehovah's Witness, who helped him to answer many questions he had from the Bible.
Mr. King's love for what he was learning, led to him dedicating his life to Jehovah and being baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses shortly after obtaining his discharge.
Mr. King met the love of his life when he was introduced to Connie and the two married on Feb. 9, 2002. His love for exploring and travel led to many adventures, and their mutual love of animals led to a houseful of rambunctious and well-loved Labrador retrievers, Newfoundlands, and one patient kitty.
He was loved by many - a loving husband, a faithful friend and confidant, and a dedicated worshipper of his God. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Mr. King is survived by his beloved wife, Connie King of Sweet Home; sisters Linda McCord and Cheryl King; and stepdaughters Kristen Sanders and son-in-law Mike of Portland, and Clarissa Schaper of Moscow, Idaho.
A memorial service will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, at The Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Sweet Home.
Sweet Home Funeral Chapel is handling the arrangements.
