Obituary for Benjamin King,Sr.

The King Family is sad to announce the passing of a loved one.

On April 18, 2019, Mr. Benjamin King, Sr. Departed this life at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital in Albany, Ga.

Benjamin King, Sr, affectionately known as Ben, was born on September 2, 1938, to the late John Thomas, Sr and Myrtice Toles King.
He received his formal education in the Worth County school system and graduated from J.W. Holley High in 1957.
With an upbringing in a God fearing home, at an early age Ben confessed his faith in Christ and joined Pleasant Grove Baptist Church of Shingler, GA.
On June 26, 1960, he was united in holy matrimony to Sarah Arlaine Best. The union was blessed with six children.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his loving wife, Sarah King; son, Cal David King; a brother, Earnest King; and a grandchild, Cass Johnson, Jr. From working on the farm to mechanic with Ford-Mercury to a supervisor with Worth Textile and K&E Industries, he is known for his qualities of being a hard worker, straightforwardness, perseverance, and a leader that many of his peers looked up to. It has often been said by several that worked under him that his leadership skills helped mold them into the leaders they are today. He was a loving father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend; all of whom he cherished dearly. His favorite pastime was fishing and in his opinion he was the G.O.A.T. when it came to fishing.

The legacy of his season will forever be cherished in the hearts of his daughters Glenice King Stephens (Saville), Patricia Brown Ogden (Alfred); sons Benjamin King Jr. (Makiba), Jeffery Wayne King (Casonia), James Linwood King, Ronnie Keith King (Veronica), and Cass Johnson; brothers, John Thomas King, Jr. (Joyce), Milton King, and Jimmy King; and a sister-in-law, Annie Dean King; his nineteen grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild; A host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
