Obituary for Robert Gene King

Robert Gene “Eastwood” King, passed away suddenly on Thursday, March 16, 2023 in West End.

Robert was born in Fort Sill, OK to Elizabeth and Gene King on December 14, 1960, which was their wedding anniversary.

He is survived by his wife Carla King; daughter Christa King, two step-sons, Billy Hewett and Jamie Hewett; 4 siblings, Carol King, Sandy King, Charlie King and Richard King; 5 nieces and nephews and his aunt Nancy Garflo.

Robert was a family man and true friend.  He lived life to the fullest, loved fishing, music, the beach, bonfires, family gatherings and a little sip or more.  He never met a stranger human or animal and was always willing to help.  He had a heart of gold.

He worked many years as a residential and commercial painter.  He took great pride in his work locally and across the country, especially an Air Force base in California.

Gone but never forgotten!

May your playful soul shine on!
