Obituary for Mr. Arnold Lee King Sr.

Mr. Arnold Lee  King Sr.
The sun rose on the life of Mr. Arnold Lee King, Sr. on July
17, 1947 in Marion, Arkansas when he was born to Alan and
Almeta King. The fourth of nineteen children, Arnold had
eight brothers, and ten sisters. A happy, child he always
kept everyone laughing with jokes, slick word play (“I’m
the Booga with the Suga”) and his dancing skills. He
loved doing for his family at whatever cost, letting others
know he was their brother. Educated in the public school
system, Arnold graduated from Riley High School in
South Bend, Indiana. He continued his education,
attending CDL School and Carpentry College.
On May 19, 1983, Arnold was united in marriage with
Alice Johnson. He was later united in marriage with his second
wife, Donna Daniels. Arnold was the loving father of six biological children
and devoted stepfather of four stepchildren, Stacey, T’Chaka, Tamboura,
Temmel, Arnold, Jr., Jasmine, Teresa, Alexis and Joy. The children remember
him as loving camping, and fishing (anything to do with the outdoors). He
loved his family and entertaining people, thrived being around friends and
good people, always wanted to be in the mix. He definitely had a strong
personality, was honest, stern, stubborn and could talk. “He could make a long
story longer (OMG). He would do anything for everyone and loved animals
except house cats and didn’t mind letting you know it. He was known to put
objects or other people’s kids between him and the cats. He was a very dapper
individual fashionista. From socks, shoes, drawers,
t’s, when it came to dressing, you couldn’t tell him he
wasn’t clean, he always stayed well groomed, smelling
good and neat. Dad was the kind of person who was
particular on how his clothes were folded, and from
how toothpaste was squeezed to how the toilet paper
was put on the roll. A man of many talents, he could
build anything. Many people called him “Himdo”
which means he could do it all.”

His sixteen grandchildren loved their “Papa”
and remember him sharing life lessons, goals,
pictures of the past and their parents’ stories,
fishing and camping. Londyn wanted everyone
to know that “her Poppa is the brightest star in
the sky and he and Grandma are looking down
on us all.”
By profession a carpenter, Arnold was also a
business owner. He owned a trucking company.
He was known for hard work, excellence in his
work, honesty and a joy to do business with. In his free time, Arnold
enjoyed family, friends, watching movies and sports (especially the
Broncos). His best friend, Phillip and Patty Lawton (his fishing com-
panion) and friends, Aldrick “Duck”, Sandra Smith, Big Al, Craig Mont,
Rolland (cousin) and Rodney (cousin) will best remember Arnold for his
smile, honesty, strong personality and stubbornness. His favorite color was
blue and he preferred jazz, blues, R&B and folk music. His love, caring,
sense of humor, sharp wit and strong personality will be deeply missed by
all who shared this wonderful man’s life. To know Arnold was to love him.
The sun set on the life of Mr. Arnold Lee King, Sr. on January 22, 2018
when he passed into eternal rest. He is preceded in death by his wife,
parents, brothers, Calvin, Jerome and Allen and sister, Emma. Those left
to cherish his memory include his children, Stacey King of MI, T’Chaka of
Denver, CO, Tamboura King of South Bend, IN, Temmel (Sara) King of
Denver, CO, Arnold “Little Shoie” (Shayla) King, Jr., Jasmine Sanders,
