Grandpa King, I never had the opportunity to meet as you passed before I was born however everyday I strive to make you proud. I followed in your footsteps and became a law enforcement officer. You and my father were a huge motivating factor in my choice of career path. I will continue to carry on the King name in law enforcement and be the best Deputy sheriff I can.

Rest in peace and we will take it from here
