Paul Gene King, 83, of League City, Texas, passed away February 7, 2020. He was born in Drumright, Oklahoma on March 26,1936 to Ellis Young King and Maudie May King. He was married to the love of his life, Wanda King for 59 years.

Paul's hobbies included Genealogy, Writing, Reading, Woodworking, Photography, Sports and History. His joy in life was spending time with his family and enjoying any activities that his children and and grandchildren participated in.
IN 2015, a lifelong dream was realized as he became a published author. “Decision Made” was a faith based book written about his ancestors immigrating to America in the 1800’s. He had spent many years researching his family’s ancestry and the book was a culmination of that effort.
Paul believed his family was his greatest blessing of his life.

My brother-in-law EY King first introduced Paul, his little brother, to our family when he married my sister, Joyce King! I was the little sister! Paul was such a wonderful addition to our family! Then he met and married Wanda! ❤️ It was love at first sight! As the “little sister” they always made me feel loved because that is just who they both are! I have been so blessed to know Paul! He was always a kind considerate Christian man ! He was creative and talented ! Then I discovered he could write! His sense of humor was always delightful! I am so grateful to have known Paul! He will be missed by many that he touched during his life! I send my condolences and prayers of comfort to his family. May your wonderful memories help you through this difficult time!
