Loren Moses King Jr.
Loren Moses King Jr., of McKinney, passed away Feb. 21, 2003. He was born March 25, 1922 in McKinney as the only child of Loren M. and Grizel Searcy King. He graduated from McKinney High School and attended Texas A&M University until called to serve in the U.S. Army from 1943 until 1946, where he attained the rank of Sergeant. During that period, he served in communications in Eisenhower’s Headquarters in the European Theater of Operations and afterward remained in the reserves from 1949-1951. During this time in the service, he was awarded the following medals: Good Conduct, WWII Victory, American Theater and European Mediterranean Theater with two Bronze Stars.
After discharge, he worked in his father’s wholesale grocery business in Jacksonville, Texas, where he met and married Norma Allen on April 8, 1950. After moving to Marshall in 1955, he worked in the sales department of United Gas until retirement in 1985.
His devotion to his family is reflected by his active involvement with his children from early years in all their activities. His presence was always felt at Trinity Episcopal Church where he served as acolyte father, providing training for the young men. He ushered on a regular basis, also cooked and served the members breakfast between church services.
He worked with the Boy Scouts of America, leading two memorable, safe, successful Wilderness Canadian Canoe trips, paddling right along with the boys over the waterways out of Ely, Minn. His influence on young men is still evident today, remembered as a “gentle giant.”
He and his wife played a significant role in a vanishing “Beaver Cleaver” neighborhood. He was always in a “ready” mode to help and offer assistance for any need arising in the neighborhood. The Lyonak neighbors and other friends made annual Memorial Day camping trips as long as children were around, and he was one of the leaders of the group.
He is survived by his wife, Norma Allen King; children Loren M. III (Buddy) and Anna of Sugarland, Sam Searcy and Susan of Longview, David Frank and Josie of College Station and Sibyl Elizabeth of Marshall; grandchildren Cristina and Loren King of Sugarland, Kathy King Leath and husband Peter of Fort Worth, Jonathan King of Paris, Ashley and Lauren King of College Station, Matt Stanfield of Arlington, Va., Sarah Stanfield and Anna Westmoreland of Marshall and Elissa and Chance Gilbert of Longview and one great-grandchild, Austin Samuel Leath.
