Charles Clifton King, born Aug. 9, 1941, in Atlanta, departed this earth to be with his Lord on Wednesday, May 2, 2012. He will be greeted there by his granddad, dad, mother and brother.

He graduated from Stone Mountain High School in Georgia in 1959, then immediately served our country in the Marine Corps, going through boot camp at Parris Island, S.C.

Charles and his wife, Janie, dated for six weeks before getting married for 47 years. Being blessed with four daughters, their journey through life took them from Georgia to Los Angeles to his home of 26 years in Arizona. Charles started serving the Lord in 1973 to preach and pastor at many locations across this country.

Charles is survived by his wife, Janie King; daughters, Diana, Denise, Cindy and Christy; grandkids, Stephen, Amber, Jason, Daniel, Ashley, Charlie, Jessica, Miranda, Christopher and Mason; eight great-grandkids; and numerous friends who knew him as "Charmin Charlie."

Services will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 12, at Praise Chapel, 419 Harrison St., Kingman. All who knew and loved Charles are welcome to come.
