May 21, 1950 ˜ January 20, 2019

Terry Wayne King, 68 years old, passed away unexpectedly from cancer on January 20, 2019 at his home in Evans, WA, with his loving family by his side. He was born on May 21, 1950 in Morton, WA to Billy and Alverna King.
At a young age, Terry’s family moved to Vancouver, WA. He attended Hudson Bay High School graduating in the class of 1968.
On December 23, 1986, Terry met Sheila Noe, the love of his life. On June 26, 1993, they were wed and honeymooned in Lake Tahoe.
In the early years of his career, Terry worked with his Dad in the family business, “Billy King Insurance Agency”. Later, Terry left the insurance business, and joined Sheila in her thriving business, the “Coffee Connection”.
When the two of them both finally retired, they were able to travel more. Terry loved to fish when he got the chance and also enjoyed golfing.
Terry had a larger than life air to him, and when his 6’7” frame entered a room, you knew it. He loved people and making new friends, he certainly had the gift of gab.
Terry is survived by his loving wife, Sheila; sons, Brandon and Eric King; step-daughter, Shaelyn Luketich (Andy); grandchildren, Hailey, Taylin, Nathan, Courtney, Anthony and Megan; his mother, Alverna King; sisters, Marsha Rasmussen (Jerry), Nancy Schreiber (Brazel) and Lori Krier; as well as many nieces, nephews, great-nieces/nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his father, Billy King.
A memorial service is being planned for March 2nd, 2019, 11 o’clock, at Vancouver Church, 3300 NE 78th St., Vancouver, WA.
Danekas Funeral Chapel & Crematory were entrusted with the arrangements.
