Charles Barry King, 81 of Castle Hayne passed peacefully from this life in the early morning of Tuesday, December 4, 2018 after a period of declining health, while at New Hanover Regional Medical Center. Born in Craven County, Mr. King was the son of the late Martel King and Jane Hunnings King. He is also preceded in death by his brother Jerry King.
Charles grew up in the Tin City area of Wallace, NC and later moved to Castle Hayne. He retired as an electrical maintenance supervisor in the sheetrock manufacturing industry. Earlier in life he spent a great deal of time in net fishing and also enjoyed vegetable gardening. Normally, he grew enough vegetables for his entire neighborhood and very much enjoyed giving away his produce. His best companion friend was his dog "Snuggles" who he dearly loved. During life his philosophy has always been "Never Give Up".
He was a wonderful father and is survived by two sons--Alan King and wife Julie of Porters Neck and Brian King and wife Cheri of Porters Neck; grandchildren--Laura King of Ashville, Sarah King of Wilmington, Lydia King of Porters Neck, Samantha King of Porters Neck, and Liam Huggins of Porters Neck; and brother--Jimmy King of Littleton, NC.
