Obituary for Rick King

Rick King, age 55, of Dalton, passed away on Sunday, July 2, 2017.
Rick was an incredible father, brother, and friend, full of advice, compassion, and love for his three sons, and anyone who knew him. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, and musician. He loved the outdoors and was a firm believer that Bigfoot was out there. He soaked up every minute of life with his contagious personality that held you captive anytime you were around him. He was an amazing story-teller and had the most talented hands that could fix anything from a '73 Ford to a washing machine to a Les Paul. He was a dedicated, hard-working employee at Shaw Industries, the type who would only miss a day of work to witness the birth of a grandchild. The world lost a best friend to so many, and his love is carried on through all that he knew and loved. He believed in Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, and we can all rest assured that today he is enjoying the presence of our God in a way we can only imagine, and one day, along side the Creator, we will see him welcoming us home. Until that day, may we all strive to live and love as big as him. The legacy of the 4 King Boys rides on...
He was preceded in death by his parents, Gerald and Faye King.
He is survived by three sons and daughters-in-law, Jason King of Dalton, Dustin and Mary King of Rocky Face, Travis and Skyler King of Dalton; sister and brother-in-law, Pam and Rick Pendley of Dalton; grandchildren, Cooper, Campbell, Bennett, Kaisley, Waylon and Credence King; several nieces and nephews also survive.
