Obituary for Ronald G. King

Ronald Grey King, 79, of La Grange, passed away Wednesday, July 18, 2018. Ron was born December 3, 1938 in Warren County to the late Walter Foster King and Henrietta Hamlet King.

Ron’s life centered around hard work, family and serving others. Ron was the backbone of the La Grange Rotary Club and served as its treasurer for many years. As a Rotarian, he held many positions and devoted tremendous amounts of time to the Lenoir County Junior Miss Program. Ron was awarded Rotary’s most prestigious award, The Paul Harris Fellow.

Ron was a member of White Oak Grove Original Free Will Baptist Church. He loved riding around town and through the countryside in his pickup truck to check everything out.

In earlier years, Ron loved attending NASCAR races and camping. Most people weren’t aware of Ron’s adventurous side, he truly enjoyed attending the State Fair or any theme park. Ron could always be found riding roller coasters or any other ride that would bring a thrill.

After many years of hard work and dedication, Ron fulfilled his life-long dream of owning his own auto repair shop, King’s Auto Repair, where he was always willing to go the extra mile to help people with their automotive needs.

Ron truly loved his family and friends. Their care and well-being were at the forefront of his life and he always looked forward to the family being together.

Tuesday evenings and fellowship with his fellow Rotarians were a weekly highlight for Ron. Ron’s life will be celebrated on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 at 7 p.m. at Rouse Funeral Home with Pastor Bob Smith officiating. A time of visitation and fellowship will follow the memorial service.

Ron is survived by his wife of 57 years, Frances Carolyn King; two daughters, Kim King Smith and her husband, Steve of Albertson, and Lorree King Lee and her husband, Danny of La Grange; sisters, Nancy K. Pittman and husband, Bobby of Lakeland, Florida, and Connie K. Agans and husband, Billy of Swansboro; along with three precious grandchildren, Daniel Lee and wife, April, Jeb Smith and Anna Lee. A brother, Samuel T. King, preceded Ron in death.
