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.
