Thomas Eugene ‘Gene’ King, 86, of Anderson, SC, passed peacefully on Sunday, January 29, 2023, at West Village Post-Acute.
Born in Oconee, SC on February 7, 1936, he was the son of the late Wylie and Ruby Mize King. Gene was loving and faithful to his friends and family always being there for support. His pride and joy were his grand, great grand, and great-great grandchildren. You could say he was the life of the party and you would never fail to laugh at his witty service of humor.
He is survived by his daughter, Deborah Page; 6 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; and 3 great-great grandchildren.
In addition to his parents, he is also predeceased by a son, Randall Eugene King. Gene was the last son of 8 brothers and 3 sisters.
Services will be held on Friday, February 3, 2023, at 2pm at Sosebee Mortuary, South Chapel officiated by Pastor Mark Daniel. Burial will follow at Forest Lawn Memorial Park.
The family will be at the home of his daughter, Deborah Page, and will receive friends prior to the service on Friday at the Mortuary from 1pm-2pm.
A heartfelt thanks to his caregiver, Kristy Bobo, who gave Gene such wonderful and personal care.
Sosebee Mortuary and Crematory, South Chapel, is assisting the family with the arrangements.
