Lieutenant King, for many years, you dedicated your life to protecting others that they may be safe. It took a small virus to take your life. Our Lord, who sees all and knows all, will reward you abundantly for your courage, dedication and selfless service. May He immerse you and your loved ones in His Divine Mercy. Rest in peace, good and faithful servant.

I have known and worked with Lieutenant King through his years at TCSO, and I will tell anyone that Lt. King is a good man and a good father. His work ethics is entirely based on the policy and procedures. He will always navigate through the challenges and stress of the job, while putting up a great smiles and laughter that will resolve any issues that presents itself. As a Lieutenant, he will be the first to respond and take the appropriate actions necessary towards the resolution of the matter. When I communicated with him weeks prior to his passing, he responded with just one word "Fighting". When he said fighting, I guarantee you, he fought to the last. Lt. King love life, and did not intend to go this soon. Unfortunately, he lost the fight. All I can say is "Abide with him O' Lord, Abide with him."

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper

In my 5 years of working for the county I never met Lt. King in person, we only spoke over the phone. He was always a very kind and funny person. We would laugh and joke about all different kinds of things ALL the time. He always said he needed the laughs after having a hard day. He seemed to be a very good man from what I knew of him. I hope he is remembered that way by others as well.
