Steven (Steve) King, 62

Steven (Steve) King, 62, Wabash fell asleep in death at home on Wednesday Feb. 24, 2021 at 8:30 a.m., after several months of a strong fight with liver failure, with his family by his side.

He was born Oct. 28, 1958 to Edmon J and Janice (Cramer) King.

Steve was a 1977 graduate of Wabash Hgh School. His work over the years included Brown From Wabash, CMI Caastings, and his favorite job was painting water towers. He loved NASCAR, the Chicago Bears, and the Chicago Cubs. All who knew him, knew him to be a mild and gentle soul.

Steve is survived by his children, Steven J. King, Samantha L. King and Jenn Weaver; sister Debbi Hipskind; and four brothers, David A. King of Fort Wayne, Greg L. King, Mark W. (Lisa) King, and Tom King, all of Wabash; 12 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. His parents preceded him in death along with a brother, Michael King.

There will be no visitation or services at this time. A family memorial will be scheduled later in the Spring. A special thanks to Heartland Health Care and Hospice, Fort Wayne, for their amazing and compassionate staff who helped Steve and his family through his journey.
