Lodi News-Sentinel - - LOCAL / STATE -

With great sad­ness we have to an­nounce the pass­ing of Neil King Sr., our hus­band, fa­ther, un­cle, gramp­ies, bops, and friend. On Fri­day, Nov 30, 2018, he was the vic­tim of a tragic auto ac­ci­dent and was sense­lessly taken from us too soon, as well as his two fur bud­dies Birdie and Ce­cil.

Born in French Camp, CA, on Au­gust 25, 1945, and grew up in Mo­rada on Ash­ley Ln, grad­u­at­ing from Lodi High’s class of ‘64. That’s where he met Dolores Fer­reira. He mar­ried the love of his life, his high school sweet­heart on Oc­to­ber 23, 1964. They had two chil­dren. He mas­tered in con­struc­tion and be­came a build­ing con­trac­tor, build­ing many cus­tom homes in the county, and dur­ing re­tire­ment en­joyed be­ing ev­ery­ones handy­man. He also en­joyed the out­doors like gar­den­ing, kayak­ing and para-sail­ing in Hawaii. He was a kin­dred spirit with an­i­mals- his friends called him “Noah Neil”. He was a fine Chris­tian man who en­joyed read­ing his bi­ble ev­ery­day and ab­so­lutely loved play­ing with his great grand­kids. He was an all around good man with a lov­ing na­ture, al­ways treat­ing peo­ple with the ut­most kind­ness. He is deeply loved and will be sadly missed. He is with his Lord and now to­gether with his son.

Neil is pre­ceded by his par­ents Wes and Ellen King, son Neil King Jr. “Neily”, great grand­son Thomas Joseph Cataldo, his brother Bill King, neph­ews Shane King, Verdell King, Steve King, and Danny Hen­drix, in-laws Yvonne King and Glen Hen­drix.

He is sur­vived by his wife of 54 years Dolores, daugh­ter Au­drey (Michael) Sch­mierer, grand­daugh­ter Au­drey (Joe) Cataldo, grand­son Robin “Scooter” Regla, great-grand­chil­dren Ava, Sofia, and Leo Cataldo. Brothers Doyle, Leon, and Ray (Fran­nie) King, sis­ters Bea “Sis” (Dave) Owens and Cora (Ken) Bou­choukian, sis­terin-law Jackie King, broth­erin-laws Manuel Fer­reira and David (Pat) Fer­reira and many nieces, neph­ews, and cousins.

The me­mo­rial ser­vice will be held on Mon­day, De­cem­ber 10, at 10a.m., at Lodi Fu­neral Home. In­ter­ment will fol­low at Chero­kee Me­mo­rial Park, re­cep­tion to fol­low.
