My dearest and only Brother, Richard King, who passed on the 17th Sept. Dick even though I didn't visit as often as I should have, you remained in my heart and will always be remembered . When Helen and I did visit, you made us welcome, you went out of your way to drove us around to show us available real estate, and the best place to buy our crabs. I remember our visit last month, you were so disappointed that we were later than you had expected and said, "where were you, I got up early to go to the store." That''s your way, always being prepared. Every time the football Redskins would win, I waited for your call, that always came. I miss that call. I love you and will miss you. Donald King brother (and wife, Helen)

For many decades, I played tennis with Dick. It was always fun and I always learned from him not just about tennis but also about life. May he RIP. Gloria, I know he will be missed by you and your wonderful family. Bill Kopcsak

Dad always provided for his family & taking us shopping for our little clothes was all part of his makeup -- I think he loved doing it!!
In the end Frank Sinatra couldn't have sung Dad's life better than when he sang "My Way" -- He did it his way in every aspect of his life.
Touché to a wonderful father & husband
