JAMES RALPH KING (11/23/1918-1/29/2009)
(4/10/1931 - 12/11/2001)

James Ralph King passed into eternity on January 29,2009 at the Scotland County Memorial Hospital, Memphis, MO. He had been a resident at the Scotland County Care Center, Memphis, MO for several years.

Local school children would remember him as Mr. King, the superintendent of the Scotland County Schools. Local athletes might recall him as the man who opened up the gym for pick-up basketball games on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Those who enjoy the game of golf would remember him as an avid enthusiast who played nearly every day. He loved any sport that involved a ball, hunting morel mushrooms in the woods around Memphis, eating strawberries, and working with young people.

He was a graduate of what was then Northeast Missouri State Teachers College (now Truman University), a veteran of World War II serving in the Coast Guard, and a faithful member of Calvary Baptist Church in Columbia, MO, where he lived in retirement until Alzheimers disease incapacitated him.

Ralph was the son of James Austen and Josie Pearl King, born in Mexico, MO on November 23, 1918. He was the third of five brothers, and is survived by the youngest, Kenneth E. King of Lufkin, TX. He also leaves one son, Charles Chuck King, and one daughter, Ellen King Riney and son-in-law, Samuel Riney; five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

In honor of Mr. Kings wishes, his remains have been donated to medical science at the Medical Education and Research Institute in Memphis, TN. In lieu of a memorial service, the family will gather for a private time of remembrance at the home of his daughter and son-in-law, Ellen and Sam Riney in Memphis, TN.
