In memory of
JAMES A. KING
The Reverend Dr. James A. King passed away on March 3, 2020. A native of Los Angeles, he graduated from L.A. High, University of Redlands, Boston University School of Theology and Claremont School of Theology where he earned a Doctorate. He served Methodist churches in San Diego, Redondo Beach, San Luis Obispo, Orange and San Clemente. He was head of Campus Ministry for the United Methodist Church Southwest for two years. He taught classes at several different community colleges and at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. He published a book of his writings, Wide Horizons. His concern for the less fortunate was developed in Seminary when he did internships in the polio ward and prisons. His driving passion was the words of Christ, "as you have done it unto the least of them you have done it unto me". This took him beyond the walls of the church and into the community where he unexpectedly received the Outstanding Young Man of the Year Award in 1962 from the San Diego Chamber of Commerce, the Outstanding Young Man of the Year Award in 1966 from the Redondo Beach Chamber and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the City of San Clemente in 1999. Residing in San Clemente since 1985, he is remembered for starting the annual Hunger Walk for Family Assistance Ministries. He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Linda; his son, Gregory, and wife, Kim; his son, Jeffrey, and wife, Melanie; his grandchildren, Jeffrey, Elisabeth and Matthew; his sister, Cecelia and her children: Brent, Cathy and Amy. Donations in his honor may be made to: Family Assistance Ministries, 1003 Calle Negocio, San Clemente, CA 92673. www.family-assistance.org .
