Dear Florence & Family; our heartfelt sympathies to you all on the passing of Altie! His loss will leave a deep hole in your hearts, but the wonderful memories of his life will sustain you, we are sure. Daphne & Ray

Florence & Family, so sorry to hear about Altie, thoughts & prayers to you all

To Florence, John and the King family. Only found out this evening that Jack had passed away or I would have been at the funeral home to speak to you personally. I was an RCMP officer at the Airport from 1973-1990 and knew Jack very well from our many chats. Jack was a true gentleman and I as other officers enjoyed his company. Jack and I along with two other RCMP spent a weekend fishing up the Southern Shore and we had a great time. I also attended Jack’s 75 or 80th birthday and gave him and RCMP belt as a present. I also remember meeting Florence and Jack many times at Sobeys. I am so sorry for your loss.

To Grandma, Aunt Carol, Uncle John, Roger, Joanne, and Marlaine, our thoughts and prayers are with you all today and in the days ahead. Take comfort in the memories you have of Pop King xoxo
