He was born October 25, 1975 in Columbus, Ohio the son of Perry R. & Reecea M. (Warrix) King.

William graduated with an Associate’s Degree from Bradford University, and later enlisted to serve with the United States Army. William worked for Eco Plumbing as a excavator, before that he worked for Julie’s Movers in Delaware.

He was preceded in death by an infant son Ethan King, his paternal and maternal grandparents, and Crystal Triplett the mother of Justice and Juliette.

William was a handyman, always willing to help with anything needed. He enjoyed fishing, especially at Lake Pleasant Indiana, even though he wasn’t the most graceful fisherman, often spending more time untangling the line then actually fishing. William also enjoyed having bonfires in the backyard and spending time with his family. Those close to William will remember him as the giving and selfless man that he was, he would go above and beyond to repay the gift that someone gave to him.

  • In memory of a true friend, a guy who would do anything for someone in need, someone you could depend on through good times and bad. Just a kind and generous soul. You will be truly missed R. I. H William King may your soul rest in peace.

  • To the family of Billy, I am so sorry for your loss. My deepest thoughts and prayers are with you during this painful time. I pray that Billy finally found the sense of peace he had been searching for.

  • My sincere condolences to the family and friends. Although words may not be enough, may this hope from Revelation 21:4, 5 be a source of comfort during this difficult time.
    And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.
    And the One seated on the throne said: Look! I am making all things new. Also he says: Write, for these words are faithful and true.

  • My heart goes out to the family. Billy and I went to high school together. He was always so sweet to me. I will always cherish the memories. Rip old friend. You will be missed.

  • My deepest condolences, to all of you. Billy was such a good person, would do anything for anyone, if he thought it would help. We’ve been friends since high school, we never really lost touch. I’m still in shock, I just always expected him to be around. We’d joked about tormenting nursing home staff together…. Fly high, my dear friend.. You’ll ALWAYS be in my heart.

  • This guy right here… He got me out of trouble and kept me safe many many times. Often times driving a very long way just to pick me up from work or to drop me off. He accepted me for who I was and never placed any kind of judgement on me. He made sure one year that (I was going through some difficult times) I didnt spend christmas or new years alone. He would do anything for anyone that needed it. He was always there when I needed him and he always spoke with such wisdom and experience it was hard not to listen and take his advice.. He was a sweet man who will be deeply missed by so many. We love you Billy. I hope your at peace now, fly high and watch over us all. My condolences to the family.

  • I knew Billy for over 20 years, I met him and Crystal at Club Dance, we used to have so much fun together. I even worked for him when he managed a Subway in Columbus, was always so helpful to anyone who needed it, gonna miss my friend, RIP

  • Justice and Family-

    I received your message from Mrs. Nicely at Dempsey. I am so sorry. You are in my thoughts. Please know I am thinking of you at this time and will do all I can to support you. I wrote you an email, Justice (DCS account). Please reach out to me at anytime.

    With love and support,

    Mr. Freado

  • Billy and I were childhood friends; we lived three doors down from one another. Some of my best childhood memories were with Billy and his brother Perry. We attended countless church youth group events together and always came back with funny stories.

    I lost touch with Billy after my family and I moved from the neighborhood; however, I will never forget the great childhood I had with Billy as one of my closest friends. God bless you my friend.

  • I am so very sad to hear of Billy’s passing. I met Billy and the crew as a teenager, at the Nazarene campgrounds in Columbus where so many amazing memories were made! He was such an amazing person. My heart truly hurt when I heard. I’m keeping you all lifted in prayer! Gone way to soon! I truly wish I could come for the service!

  • I’m so sorry about Billy he was very sweet he was just like his uncle Roger they like bonfire and drinking together the look alike

  • Friends and Family,

    I served with Mr. King while he served in the Ohio National Guard. He was a good mechanic and hard worker. It was a pleasure to have served with him. I wish you peace and understanding during this troubled time.
