Billy Dean King, 76, of North Little Rock, Arkansas passed away peacefully on Monday, August 26, 2019. On November 29, 1942, he was born and raised by Clarence Edward and Iley Idell Taylor King in Romance, Arkansas. He graduated from Rose Bud High School.
He was charming, loving, and willing to help anyone. He had the biggest heart and was a free spirit. Billy enjoyed delivery jobs because he loved to travel and had many adventures on the road. He loved spending time with his family, horse racing, casinos and watching romantic comedies.
Billy is survived by his wife and best friend, Becky Waller King; three daughters, Cindy Wingard (Deral), Brittany Deanne King (Chance Owen); and Amber King; five grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren; sister-in-law, Sandy Wilder; niece, Stacie Phillips and other extended family and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; stepson, Matthew Davis; parents-in-law, Bill and Jackie Waller; his favorite aunt, Inis Fason; and cousin, Peggy King Taylor.
Billy's family would like to thank the staff at Lakewood Nursing and Rehab for taking such good care of him the last few months. Billy made many friends in his short stay there and he shared those friendships with his family.
We would also like to thank the doctors and staff at Baptist Springhill hospital for the excellent care he received. The nurses and techs there all became our friends. We also appreciate the special attention and concern from the Baptist Hospice team.
Memorials may be made to Pulaski County Humane Society, 14600 Colonel Glenn Road, Little Rock, Arkansas 72210.
