February 6, 1946 ~ September 20, 2022 (age 76)


George Elton King, 76, of Collegedale, Tennessee, passed away at his home on Tuesday, September 20, 2022. 

George was born on February 6, 1946 in Chattanooga, Tennessee to the late Elton B. King and Corinne Kittle King and was a lifelong resident of Collegedale, Tennessee.

George worked for McKee Bakery and retired after 45 years of service. He was a loving and devoted father to his two children and favorite uncle and father-figure to his nieces and nephews.  He enjoyed tinkering with small engine repair and lived for his next camping adventure, leaving many precious memories of good times spent with his family and beloved pugs.  His fun-loving spirit will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Frankie Klinner King, son, Christopher (Jamie) King, daughter, Kimberly (Ben) Dotson; sisters, Eleanor Phillips, Sterling Bush, Patricia Womack; 12 nieces and nephews, 10 great-nieces and  great-nephews.
