May 13, 2010In Memoriam: Frank King
The way to my heart...is through my heart, and the family of Frank King did just that.
"King, Frank L., 84, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, died peacefully in his sleep at his home in North Tustin, California after a lengthy illness."
Frank enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1943 and flew missions as a tail gunner, navigator, and radioman in World War II and Korea. For his service, he received numerous decorations and medals. He had a "Marine" mindset his whole life, always following his credo: "What did we say we would do? Then do it!"Charice and Ron King, the son and daughter-in-law of Mr. King, contacted us about
Operation Family Fund
because they knew their beloved father "would be pleased" to have donations made in lieu of flowers. Mr. King is survived by a huge number of loving family and friends. And now, because of this request, he is also survived by a huge number of families of fallen military.In just a few days, more than $2000 has been sent to Operation Family Fund (OFF) in Mr. King's respected name and memory.Operation Family Fund and all of us at The Dr. Laura Program are humbly grateful for this gracious thoughtfulness.I would like to offer my personal condolences to the family of friends of Mr. King, who was obviously a remarkable man.
