Victor B. King, age 62, of Philadelphia, rode into his final sunset on Sunday February 2, 2020.
Known to all his clients as a meticulous residential painter, Vic took great pride in â€œmaking his clients happyâ€ with his detailed wood and drywall work, and his talent for mixing custom colors that transformed the look and feel of their homes. To his friends, Vic was a fishing partner, train enthusiast, competitive cowboy action shooter, motorcyclist, hunter, boater and so much more. To his neighbors, Vic was a man who took great pride in his home and his family. To his family, Vic was adventurous, spontaneous, and committed. He was a man who lived life to the fullest and encouraged others to do the same. Victorâ€™s mental fortitude and sense of humor was an inspiration to all who knew and cared for him.
Victor was the devoted husband of Lori King (nee Ott); proud father of Christina Marie, Kimberly Anne and Brian Christopher; loving son of Theresa King and nephew of Charlotte (Kyran) Connelly; younger brother of Jeanette (Ed) Pentecost and caring uncle of Taryn (Kenneth) McLaughlin and Tierney Pentecost.
After a private service at 1 oâ€™clock, the King family would be honored to have you join them in the State Room of the Delaware Valley Cremation Center from 1:45 - 5 pm on Sunday, February 16th for a gathering to honor and celebrate Victorâ€™s life. Light food and refreshments will be available. A memorial tribute will start at 3 pm. Victorâ€™s family will be accessible before and after the tribute to receive the loving comfort of your condolences, remembrances and support. Additionally, there will be a private booth to make a video recorded message to the family as well as a chalkboard to draw or script your favorite memories, so please bring your favorite Victor B. King story.
In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that any donations in Victorâ€™s name be sent to either The ALS Association Greater Philadelphia Chapter or to Bridging Voice , a nonprofit with the mission to â€œallow no diagnosis to rob an individual of their ability to connect and communicateâ€. Both organizations have lifted them up, guided them, and held their hands literally and figuratively throughout their journey with ALS.
