KingDonald E. (Don) King, 62, went to join his Heavenly Father on Monday, August 18, 2014, with his loving family by his side.
He is preceded in death by his parents Leonard and Lorraine King of Mercedes, TX, and stepmother Francis King.

We will all miss his sense of humor, his sagacious advice and his generous goodwill. He was a giving man who willingly shared his life with everyone. He never knew a stranger. We love and miss you but know you are at peace.
