Wilfred S. King, age 96 of Round Lake Beach, Illinois, passed away peacefully in his home on December 4, 2021. He was born May 21, 1925, in Chicago, Illinois to Edward King and Annie (Kay) King. He met and married the love of his life Loretta (Sokolowski) King on June 29, 1946, in Chicago, Illinois.
Will’s greatest joy came from being around his loving and extended family. He was a WWII Veteran and a long time Cub’s fan. His hugs were legendary. He had a varied work career including mechanic, postal worker, and head plant operator of a school district in Florida. He enjoyed softball, puzzle making, model planes and cars, bowling, and fishing but most of all enjoyed life.
Will is survived by his daughter, Teri (King) Popp, brother Donald King, grandchildren Tracie (Danny) Weymouth, Deborah (Dan) Woods-Howell, Susie Woods, Tiffanie (Al) Masco, great grandchildren Zachary Masco, Rayna Weymouth, Trinity Howell, Tyler Masco, Sophia Randall, Rylee Weymouth, Kylie Masco, and great great grandchild Daxon Ruschke.
He is preceded in death by his parents, wife Loretta King, sister Eva Andersen and son Phillip King.
