David M. King


David King

David Michael King, 69, of Columbus, Ohio passed away unexpectedly on Monday, June 13, 2016.  On July 7, 1946, he was born in Cleveland, Ohio, to the late Phyllis and Edward King.  He resided in the Columbus/Clintonville area to raise his family and spend his life.  Dave will be intensely missed by his daughters, Stefanie King and Wendi King.

Dave served his country in the United States Coast Guard and was stationed in the Great Lakes area. After his Honorable Discharge, he received his broker’s and realtor’s licenses. He then started his business, Beechwold Realty, where he became well-known and well-loved throughout the Clintonville and Beechwold communities.  After his real estate adventure he worked for Kroger, putting smiles on people’s faces until retirement.

Dave was an avid hunter and loved fishing and camping as well.  When his family joined in the charity organization FHFH (Farmer’s and Hunter’s Feeding the Hungry), Dave couldn’t wait to join in and volunteer his help, which he did for many years, spreading the word for the Faith Missions.

Dave was more than excited to share his passion for the outdoors and even more proud when his daughters followed in his footsteps.  Some of the best memories include a special fishing trip to Alaska with his daughter Stefanie and the Tennessee Boar Hunt with his daughter Wendi. Dave was extremely excited and proud that he was able to make his way to Africa twice for large-game hunts.

The family would like to thank everyone for their thoughtful words and prayers during this difficult time.  The celebration of his life will begin Friday, June 17, 2016 at 3:00 pm at Ohio Cremation and Memorial Society / Rodman-Snyder Memorial Center, 5464 N. High Street, Columbus, Oh, 43214. Memorial contributions can be made to Larry Alley, 23 Brevoort Rd, Columbus, Ohio, 43214.

    I have many fond memories of weekly real estate tours in Clintonville with David. He fed us well at his Super Bowl parties. He shared his hunting experiences as well as the food he harvested. His generosity extended beyond his immediate circle of friends as he helped organize hunters to donate meat to the needy. Love and miss you Dave.

  • Joyce Schatz says:

    My family has known the King family since around 1988 when we lived on the same street. Our daughters attended school together and were always at each others’ houses. Dave was always warm and welcoming – and would do anything for a friend. Most of all, he loved his daughters unconditionally. Dave was loved by many and will be greatly missed.

  • Carol J Ringwald says:

    I met Dave through one of his good friends and I always loved his smile and sense of humor. He loved his motorcycle and even took me for a ride on it one evening and I loved it! I know that he really loved his family and my prayers and thoughts are with you all.

  • Sandy Lou Matthaes Gallagher says:

    I knew Dave during our times at Dominion Junior High and Whetstone High School, and I am sadden to learn of his passing. The Dave I remember was the most polite but a quiet person. I had a lot of talks with him and I like him very much. RIP Dave!

  • Bob Sheehan says:

    I am very sorry to hear that Dave passed away. We went to High School together and I knew him all my life. We hunted, fished and rode motorcycles together. He will be missed by a lot of people.
    Keep the faith Stefanie and Wendi.
    Love you two,
    Bob Sheehan

  • Norma Sisson says:

    Stephanie and Wendi – John and I are so sorry for your loss. I would talk to Dave every time I was in Krogers. I missed him once he retired. Please accept our sincere sympathy in the loss of your father. John was friends of your Dad thru Jim Sheehan. That is how I met your Dad. He also helped us in the selling of my Father in Laws house. He will be missed. Love and Prayers to the both of you. Norma and John Sisson
