To the family of Johnie King, My name is Deanna King the oldest daughter of Frank. I live in Lancaster, OH. I’m sorry to hear of his passing, I hope someone gets in touch with me either through e-mail or by phone, 740-654-6357. Thank you, I am sorry for your loss.
To the whole family – I was truly sad to hear about Johnie’s passing. I always got a kick out of talking to him at the family gatherings. He was always coming out with something funny to say. He always remembered me when I saw him somewhere and made sure he spoke to me. He lived a good long life and I think he wanted to be where he is now – at peace. I know how hard it is for you even so. I wish I could have come to funeral home, but that is still something too hard for me at this time. I was with you in my thoughts! Love – Jan
So sorry to hear of Johnie’s passing. I enjoyed working with him and getting to know him. He waa a “fun loving” guy – used to sing us a song – don’t know what it was but was about a Rooster. You have my sympathy – I know he will be missed.
To the family of Mr. King
I am so sorry to hear about your dad, grandfather passing. May God Be With You All at this sad time. Your memories will keep him alive in your hearts forever. Please know your friends feel your loss at this time also.
