    My neighborhood Uncle! So kind and a great mentor to my son. A great friend and guy stuff helper for my husband. A total bag of stupid laughs and wise counsel for us all. We will always remember one of our most favorite neighbors- Mr Jim.

    What to say about Mr. Jim. I just cant imagine our neighborhood without him. He was so much fun to talk with always provided a laugh, if only by his mannerisms. A straight shooter and an amazing friend. He loved his family, westerns, his dogs and we all know his Coke Cola stuff! It breaks my heart thinking he wont be here to chat and complain about just about every topic you could imagine..lol He will be truly missed beyond belief. Such a gentle loving, true neighbor and friend. He will never be forgotten!

    I did not know Mr. King but I know his son through work and can easily say he must have been an amazing man and father. My condolences to the entire family.

    Mr. Jim was my best friends Dad. Mike, Mr. Jim and I went to some Titans games and I was able to spend some quality time with him . He was truly a good man. Mr. Jim was always looking after others rather than himself I enjoyed the time around him. Being around Mike for 20+ years I can see where Mike gets his caring, humble personality. I will, as I know Mike, will miss you. rest and peace
