Born September 19, 1940 in Grant, Michigan to Forrest and Helen King, he was a 'Jack of all Trades'. An avid hunter, fisherman, gold miner and artist, he built his own mining equipment, fixed things that were broken, and found whatever it was you needed. He was always trying to help those around him. He loved to be around his family, especially his kids and grandchildren. Holiday and special occasion dinners were hosted by him, he was an awesome cook and his food remembered my many. Everyone was welcome, friends were family too. There were many stories and adventures he liked to share, which never got old or boring, no matter how many times you heard them. If you needed someone to talk to, he was waiting with a pot of coffee and a smile.
