I am sorry to read the passing of “Tommy” King as I remember him from Midway School. I attended Midway until the consolidation in 1965. Tommy’s mother, Mrs. Annette King, was my first grade teacher in 1954. Life is short, but our good memories stay with us. Tommy, Mrs. King and Midway School are good memories of mine I shall keep always.
God bless your family during this time of sorrow.

I’m sorry to hear about The death of Dr. King. I’ll always remember the good times we had at the house in Deltaville. He always kept the house and yard there in great shape. The New Year’s Eve parties and watching football at the house in Richmond are also great memories. He was a very nice person and he will be missed.
I grew up with Tommy at White Oak Methodist Church in Wilsons , Va. He was a successful dentist, known for his gentle manner and understanding.

Nancy and I are saddened to learn about Tommy’s passing. I have fond memories of target practicing with Tommy at his home in Wilsons. I remember many conversations we had about motorcycles during our visits. Judy – you, Jarrett, and Christopher will remain in our thoughts and prayers as you learn to live life without someone as special as Tommy.
