Mike you were a true professional, a man who talked the talk and walked the walk. I couldn’t imagine a better mentor and friend. My time with you was a blessing brother.
Mike. Absolutely one one the best friends and co hearts I have ever had the privilege to be around. He taught me how to perceive people in a different light. He was my friend and I loved him. Best instructor I ever seen. God’s speed King. I’ll see you soon.
We are comforted by the words of Our Lord in
Revelations 21:4 “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
I met Mike in 1997, He was my fire arms instructor. He was the most understanding person. My condolences to the Mike King family. I leave you with these word of comfort: John 14:1-3 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. “In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
I enjoyed the years knowing and working with Mike. He will truely be missed. May God give his family comfort.
Prayers and condolences to the entire family.
Until we meet again. RIP my friend!!
Mike will be missed by Len and I. We loved playing golf with him when we could. He and Kay were always willing to visit our mother, whom he loved very much. He was so fun to be around, he always had a smile. He will be missed. Our hearts go out to Kay,and his children.
My deepest condolences to you Kay and the entire family. May the Father comfort each of you and give you strength as you mourn the loss of a great man.
I have the fondest memories of working with Mikey. I think our whole training crew looks back to those years of working together and all we can do is smile. We shared and laughed many days while enjoying breakfast cake and coffee, playing cards, plotting the next prank, and the occasional nerf gun war. He was a great instructor, mentor, and friend and will be missed.
God bless you and give you peace,
Mike was my cousin and my best friend! I loved him like a brother. I am so glad that he is not suffering anymore. He gave a lot of himself over the years and I am blessed to have him and the whole family in my life. Thank you Mike and Kay for allowing me to be part of it.
Mike made this world a better place. We are all fortunate to have known such a good and Godly man. Mission accomplished. Thank you, Mike.
The world has lost a great man. Working with Mike was a wonderful experience with his positivity and fun can-do outlook. We called it cold, he called it football weather. He stayed in great physical shape but would bring out Kay’s delicious cakes for us and not eat any except to “even that up a little” after we had carved it up. Our days were always better with Mike.
God’s blessings on Kay and the family.
Love and prayers
To Kay and his family,
Blessed be the GOD and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the GOD of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, that we may be able to comfort them that are in any affliction, through the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of GOD. For as the sufferings of Christ abound to us, even so our comfort also abounds to us through Christ.
(2 Corinthians 1:3-5)
God speed Mike. I’ll see you again brother!!
Our thoughts and prayers are with the King family. Was a friend of Mikes at Pantex. God Bless Doug Kalka
So sorry to hear this news, and my prayers go out to his beautiful family. He loved his family and enjoyed playing golf as often as possible. I know the last few months have been difficult, but I’m so glad to know he loved Jesus and he has been made new!
We are so sorry for your loss.
I remember when we played ball Mike was a good outstanding player
