Arthur Wilson King

July 22, 1943 to May 7, 2020

Obituary

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother, Arthur Wilson King on May 7, 2020 at the age of 76 while surrounded by his loving family. Predeceased by parents William and Mary King (nee Squires), Infant brother William James King Jr and parents-in-law Jacob and Elizabeth Smith.

Forever remembered and loved by his wife of 54 years Bernice (nee Smith); Children Douglas (Valerie) King, Larry (Kim) King and Angela(Stephen)Chatman; Grandchildren Brady King, Alyxandra King, Adrianna King, Zackery King and Sophia Chatman; Sister Winnifred (Tom) Martin; Sister-in-laws Florance Verlinde (Lawrence-deceased), Helen Smith (Wince-deceased), Debbie Scurry (Wayne-deceased); Brother-in-law David Smith (Aggie-deceased) along with a large circle of family and friends.

To all the staff on VP2 South at the Caribou Memorial Veterans Pavilion, who not only provided wonderful care to Art but who also became a part of our family and we are forever grateful.  We love you and we can’t thank you enough for the kindness you have shown to Art over time. A special thank you to Reverend David Pilling and Reverend Denine Morgan for all the prayers and support that you have shown to Art and his family during this difficult time.

Art was a hardworking, devoted man who loved his family dearly, especially his grandchildren who were the love of his life. It’s very comforting to know that he will go hand in hand with his mother who passed the day prior on May 6th and they will walk this journey together.

Funeral arrangements entrusted to Carnell’s Funeral Home. A private family service and inurnment will take place at a later date. Donations can be made to St. Philip’s Anglican Church.

Doug, Larry and entire King Family,

Very sorry to learn of your loss. To me, your Dad was a giant of a man – literally and figuratively. He often shared valuable wisdom when I was struggling to “find my way” as a young man.

Also, I spoke with my Dad today. He asked me to pass along his condolences, noting he would otherwise be planning a visit. He too held your Dad in very high regard.

My sincere sympathy to Art’s wife and family. I am sorry I haven’t been in the Veteran’s Building in recent weeks. I often sat with Art at the Pavilion, but I’m happy Rev. Denine was present there the past couple of weeks. My prayers are with you during his difficult time for all of you. May Art and his mother rest in peace.
