John Wesley "Johnny" King, Jr., age 58, of Henderson, KY, passed away at 11:06 p.m., Friday, January 11, 2013, at Methodist Hospital, Henderson, KY.

In the late 1980s, Johnny met, fell in love with, and married the love of his life Shirley. He worked as a Mechanic, and general "Jack of all Trades", with Farm Bureau Service Center for over 20 years. He then moved on to S&W Rack where he worked in production and fabrication. His family will remember him as being the man who can do anything and have the answer to everything. A well-liked and respected man in the community, Johnny was the man you would seek out if you needed help with anything. He was a hard-working man, but he liked to have fun, too! Those who knew Johnny knew about his treasured 1948 Chevy. He restored it from the ground up; like he did a lot of things. He enjoyed taking Shirley out cruising and going to car shows. More recently, he discovered he enjoyed remote control helicopters (and laughing as his son crashed them into things). Above all, Johnny was a man who knew the importance of taking care of and loving his wife and sons.

Johnny King was preceded in death by his father, John Wesley King, Sr.
