He received numerous awards in track & field, swimming, kickball, softball, and basketball.

Erroll married Gwen Washington on November 10, 2011, in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. Erroll was an active participant in Men’s Season at Ebenezer’s AME, in particular the annual cook-off. He also worked in the production area of the church. Erroll was an avid New Orleans Saints fan and cherished the fleur-de-lis.
After a hard-fought battle with gastric cancer, Erroll passed away peacefully on October 17, 2019 at his home in Bowie, MD. Erroll’s compassion, helpfulness and friendliness will never be forgotten.
Erroll is survived by his loving wife, Gwen; parents, Earl and Arlene King; sister, Rolena King; daughter, Sydney King; stepchildren Sheria, Maurice and Arianna Washington; and step granddaughter, Ilana Washington, the apple of his eye.
