It is with great sadness that we wish to announce the sudden passing of Henry David King while camping at his favorite place in Whycocomagh Bay on June 6th. He was born on March 12th, 1940 to John Henry and Elsie (Swan) King . He was a lifelong resident of Little Bras d'Or and owner of Bras d'Or Auto Body and Marine for over 50 years. Dave loved spending time camping and playing cards especially 45s. He had an obsession with automobiles - was a Ford man through and through.
Left to mourn are his wife of almost 61 years Joyce (MacDougall) King and children David (Nancy), Gail (Wayne Hall) and Chris (Allana), and his much-loved grandchildren Michael, Matthew, Cody, Marissa and Jennifer and great grandchildren Cheyenne, David and Maci.
Dave is also survived by his sisters Verna (William King - deceased), Wanda (Roddie Yorke) and brother Eldridge (Ethel) and their children.
Besides his parents, Dave was predeceased by his beloved grandson Brent Hall, his stepmother Catherine, his brother John James and sister Debra (in infancy).
We want to give thanks for the great care provided to Dave over the years by the wonderful nurses at the VON.
As per Dave's wishes, cremation has taken place, there will be no service. Online expressions of sympathy can be sent to the family at www.foresthaven.ca
