Obituary of Paul E. King, Jr.

Paul E. King, Jr. 1963-2020 Paul E. King, Jr., 57, St. Joseph, Missouri, passed away Sunday, November 22, 2020. He was born to Paul E. King, Sr. and Bobbie L. King on July 25, 1963, and even though born three months premature it did not keep him from growing to stand over six feet tall as an adult, nor did it keep him from serving in the United States Navy. Paul loved his family, especially his nieces, Jennifer C. Nester, Amy M. Juhl, and Laura A. Evens, and his nephew Tim E. King. Paul was always great fun to be around always laughing and cracking jokes. He enjoyed playing hacky sack with the kids and was exceptionally good at it. Paul was never married and had no children but loved and treated his nieces and nephew as if they were his own. Paul would often take in stray cats to love and care for. He was a “Trekkie” and loved to watch his original Star Trek episodes as well as a Seattle Seahawks fan who never missed a game. Paul will be dearly missed by all. Preceding him in death were parents. Paul E. King and Bobbie L. King; his stepfather, William (Bill) E. Peek; brothers, Rick D. Larkam and Ron E. King; nephew, Kyle A. Juhl; and best friend Chris S. Lawhon. Survivors include brothers, Mike, Steve and Doug as well as his sisters, Kathy, Trudy, Brenda, Sherry, and Karla; and many other family and friends. It was Paul’s wish for cremation as well as no service, but a celebration of his life will be held at a later date. Arrangements under the direction of Simplify Cremations & Funerals.
