So sorry to hear about your loss. Heard a lot of old stories from my Grandfather (James Christy) about he and Mr. King hauling cows. You all are in my prayers.

My deepest condolences to the King family. I've known Charles for over 60 years. I'll always remember him as the man who signed my very  first paycheck (.25 per hour), for helping with tobacco ground leaves. My father (Jack Marcum) worked for Charles also, and my brother (Charlie Marcum) worked for him for several years. Through the years, I have often thought of these days gone by. My family holds the King family in highest regards. God bless you all.
