Jack D. King, 76, passed away surrounded by his loving family August 16, 2012 at his home in Yorktown. Born April 9, 1936, in Long Beach, Calif, he was the son of the late Sturlyn C. King and Freda King. He served in the USAF from 1954-1978 and it was while he was stationed in Germany that he married the love of his life, Renate, in 1960. Together, they raised five children and recently celebrated their 52nd wedding anniversary. After retiring from the Air Force, Jack began a second career with Wyle Laboratories as an electronics technician and retired in 1997. Jack enjoyed camping, woodworking, and in his later years, enjoyed playing darts with Renate at the Moose Lodge and American Legion. He did everything with his wife and best friend, including helping her run her internet-based business. He lived for her and his family all of his life. His family will miss his presence, but will cherish their memories. He is survived by his loving wife, Renate, and their children Billy King and his wife Michelle, Gina King Culp and her husband Mark, Glen King and his wife Cheyenne, Brian King, and Brenda King. Also left to cherish his memory are his 6 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Condolences may be expressed to the family online at altmeyer.com.
