Talkative, outspoken and someone who loved to joke around, are just a few of the many qualities that describe Jeff. He loved getting to spend time with his family, and especially enjoyed going on beach trips with them. He also enjoyed fishing and getting to take his daughter Lyndee. Most importantly though, Jeff loved the Lord and was a member of the New Beginnings Baptist Church where he enjoyed attending. In every laugh, every joke, and at every family gathering, Jeff’s memory will continue to live on in those who loved him most.

In addition to his father, Rev. Donald King, he was preceded in death by his grandparents Henry and Nadine King, and Andrew and Virgie Norton, father and mother-in-law Danny and Carolyn Collins, aunts Betty Jill Blackmon, Pat Burns, and Naomi Lawson, and uncle Andy Norton.
