Troy Glynn King left his world peacefully and joined family members waiting for him in heaven on July 30, 2020. He was the last survivor of 11 children. He served in the Navy, graduated from Texas Tech, was a supervisor at Western Electric and became a real estate broker. He had numerous hobbies, including golf and fishing. He was an avid Dallas Cowboy and Texas Longhorn fan. He loved westerns, especially John Wayne! He became a Christian in his 20s and went on to serve as a deacon and elder at Village and Quail Springs Church of Christ. One of his greatest accomplishments was starting a bus ministry that helped numerous children hear about God’s love and the story of Jesus. He absolutely loved his family unconditionally. We will remember him as supportive and proud of anything and everything his kids, grandkids and great grandkids participated in. He was generous, funny and one of the most positive and encouraging dads you could hope for. He will be missed by so many, but we have the assurance that he is waiting for us and will meet us at the pearly gates saying, “Hot Dog – I’ve been waiting for you!” He is survived by his wife of 70 years, Hazle, son, TG King, Jr., daughter Georgia Wallace and husband Chris, daughter Nycke White and husband Steve, six grandsons – Cory White, Nathan Wallace, Clent White and wife Courtney, Bryan Troy Wallace and wife Erica, Casey White and Alex Wallace and wife Liz.
