July 10, 1936 - May 1, 2020
George Weldon King, 83, of Guntersville, Alabama, passed away Friday, May 1, 2020 at his residence in Guntersville. Weldon was born in Guntersville on July 10, 1936, the only son of the late Waldo and Maurine Cornelius King. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Gail Delores King. Weldon proudly served his country in the United States Air Force for 24 years, including two tours in Vietnam. He was a faithful member of Creek Path Baptist Church, where he served as a deacon and was an enthusiastic member of the choir. After retiring from the Air Force, Weldon worked for Morrison Management Services in Nashville TN, Chattanooga TN, Albertville, Huntsville, and Cullman, Alabama where his duties required him to oversee the dining services of locations such as the Huntsville Space and Rocket Center, Mrs. Tupper’s Buffet and Cullman Regional Medical Center. Weldon was a man of great love, love for his Lord and Savior, love for his family and love for his church family. He was happiest when he was with family and friends, and he especially lit up when he was able to spend time with his great-grandson Thomas Weldon Bodie. Weldon is survived by his daughter Beverly A. King of Guntersville, his son Jerry G. King and his wife Kay A. King of Kingsport, TN; his granddaughter Meghan A. Bodie of Knoxville, TN, and his great-grandson Thomas W. Bodie of Knoxville, TN. Graveside services will be held on May 4, 2020 at 2:00 PM in Marshall Memorial Gardens with Brother Rick Douglas officiating. Extended family and friends who wish to support the family at the service may park in the cemetery but must remain at their vehicle. The family will have a memorial service at a later date. The family would especially like to thank the caregivers from Encompass Home Health and Hospice. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests that donations be made to Creek Path Baptist Church Building Fund, PO Box 667, Guntersville, Alabama 35976. Carr Funeral Home will be handling the arrangements.
