OBITUARY

William King Park

May 7, 1959July 25, 2020

William King Park, lovingly known as King, passed away peacefully on July 25th, 2020 in Spring, Texas at the age of 61, due to longstanding health complications.

King Park is survived by his father and stepmother, Don and Joyce Park of Galveston, Texas; his adopted daughter, Aubrie Park; his siblings, Amanda “Mandy” Seiler and husband Tom of Houston, Texas and Melinda “Cissy” McGregor and husband Russell of Pasadena, California; his nieces and nephews, Lauren Rodriguez and husband Aaron; Madolyn, Ellery and Rob McGregor; great nephews, Bennett and Holden Rodriguez; and numerous loving aunts and cousins.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Donna Lael Park and brother, Donald Eugene “Gene” Park Jr. of Houston, Texas.

King Park was born on May 7th, 1959 in Houston, Texas to Donald Eugene Park and Donna Lael Park. He graduated from Northbrook High School, class of 1977. He went on to attend Stephen F. Austin State University, where he pledged Theta Chi and graduated in 1981 with a degree in General Business. After moving back to Houston after graduation, King joined his father’s business, Big Mac Trucking Company, where he spent the reminder of his career.

King had a passion for golf and he took to it quite naturally, taking after his father. He and Gene could often be found on the course all through their youth. King went on to play many courses throughout the US and also loved playing in charity tournaments. He was a witty and generous individual who was often the life of the party. King was a super fan of Houston Sports, including the Astros, Rockets and Texans; though it was his love for baseball that he shared with his Mom and they could often be found cheering on the Astros together.

He often showed how much he loved his daughter, niece/nephews and great-nephews through actions such as allowing them to drive his car at the age of 13 or younger, introducing them to live music, spoiling them rotten and chasing the youngest ones around, producing giggles that could be heard for miles. He loved music, much like his mother and sisters. He played the guitar, sang in a high school garage band, and had a love for collecting guitars.

King maintained close and loyal friendships with many of his high school and college friends, along with business relationships that became special bonds throughout his life. King's family is extremely thankful for these long-lasting friendships.

“When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.” (Psalms 34 17-19)

A private family service is being held at Memorial Oaks Cemetery on August 21st. The family is planning a celebration of King’s life for all of his family and friends and will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the National Alliance on Mental Illness at NAMI Donations.

Cuzin,
There will always be a place in my heart for you.
In all the years together. No matter what. You were never at a loss for caring words and support.
You had the magical ability to make everyone you meet laugh. It's no wonder to me that you actually knew everyone in Houston.
I have always looked forward to making that drive to spend time with you and the family. Never a dull moment!
I can also remember like yesterday in our preteens. The four cousins would sit focused in front of the "color" tv and watch wrestling. Methodically practicing those moves on each other in the living room didn't last long. Donna and Joan kicked us outside fast.

King, our memories together will be forever.

You are at peace now King and more importantly relieved of all your pain. I'm sure your mother and brother were at the front gate welcoming you into open arms. Now you can begin another journey as we await our turn. See you on the other side and rest in peace. With all my love King !
