Robert “Bob” King
March 2, 1935-August 8, 2021
Bob was a devoted husband to his wife Sue of 46 years, and his children Kevin King and Lisa Boudreau, and his grandsons, Nathan and Alexander King.
Bob was born in Carlisle, Illinois, where he lived until graduating from high school. The recruitment posters saying Join the Air Force and see the world caught his eye, and he enlisted. He was in the Military Police and served in Korea during his tenure from 1952-1956.
He was a professional boxer after the military and won 29 out of 36 fights until he retired after a severe concussion.
That led him to the radio business, becoming a DJ and later went into sales, and with his deep voice, did many radio commercials.
However, his true love was security, and he went back to college to take courses to become certified, including his weapons handling and permit. He went into hotel security, and enjoyed working graveyard shift, which is when all the action happened he would say. He worked at the El Cortez, Handlery, and lastly the Town & Country when he retired at age 68.
Bob’s greatest pleasures in life were the simple things – sitting on the porch with coffee, his cigarette, family and their dogs.
His passing has left a huge hole in our hearts. Our sweet memories will help bring us comfort until we meet again.
