Rickie L. King, 65, of Lake Odessa, went to his heavenly home on August 10, 2018 at the Butterworth Campus of Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids, MI. He was born on December 10, 1952 to Irving and Margaret (Apsey) King in Harrison Michigan . Rickie was a Restaurant Proprietor for many years until his health forced him to retire.
Those who knew Rick well, new he had a very positive attitude and was always there to help. No task was ever too large or small. He was truly a servant of God. With his warm smile and listening ear you always felt loved and appreciated. In the last 20+ years of his life he served as a caretaker to many people, his mother, his brother, his neighborhood, and his church.
Rick’s final wishes stated that he had a Great Life and love for each and every one of you. His only wish was that we all search out Jesus as your Lord and Savior, for without his love for him he never would have made it this far. May God’s blessing be with you all.
