Kenneth E. King, 97, Morgantown

Kenneth E. King, 97, passed away Sunday evening, Oct. 21, 2012, at Indiana University Health Morgan Hospital in Martinsville. He was a resident of Morgantown.
Kenny was born Aug. 12, 1915, in Clinton County to M. Virgil and Jessie A. (Walker) King. He was a 1933 graduate of Sugar Creek Township High School in Pickard and attended Purdue University. He married Vera M. Ploughe Dec. 26, 1935, in Scircleville. She preceded him in death May 15, 2002, after 66 loving years.
Kenny served his country as a corporal with Company D 11th Infantry unit of the United States Army from 1934 to 1937, then served as an aviation ordnanceman 3rd Class with the United States Navy from 1944 to 1945. He retired in 1978 as a tool engineer for Ford Motor Company in Indianapolis after 14 years of service.
Kenny was a 50-year member of Morgantown United Methodist Church and a member of Morgantown Masonic Lodge and Order of the Eastern Star where he served as a past patron. He also was a member of Indianapolis Valley Scottish Rite, Morgan County Shrine Club and Kirklin American Legion Post. Kenny enjoyed fishing and wintering in Fort Pierce, Fla., with his wife. He was known as the “Fix-It Man.” Kenny could fix anything, from refrigeration to carpentry.
He leaves behind two daughters, Donna King and Rosella (husband, Robert) Seay, both of Morgantown; and a grandson, Kenneth C. Seay of Indianapolis. He will be remembered by his siblings, Phyllis Powell of Arizona, E. Joan Brown of Frankfort, Jewel Haskett of Zionsville and R.E. “Zeke” King of Frankfort.
Kenny was preceded in death by a son, Larry Joe King; grandson, Keith Alan Seay; three sisters and three brothers.
The Rev. Jill Howard will conduct a graveside service at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 27 at Greenlawn Cemetery, 496 W. County Road 200 South in Frankfort with military graveside rites.
Memorial contributions can be sent in honor of Kenny to Morgantown United Methodist Church “Memorial Fund,” P.O. Box 226, Morgantown, IN 46160.
