John Michael King, 67, a resident of  Sandy Springs, GA, peacefully passed away on Wednesday, February 21, 2024. Born on December 13, 1956, in Waco, TX, to the late Joseph Henry King and Mary Sutliff King.

John was a graduate of Valdosta State University and a successful CPA. His interests included stock market predictions, nurturing his garden, and cherishing moments with his beloved family.

Additionally, his sisters Carole King Huston of Medford, NY, Mary Alice King Johnson (Wade) of Union City, NJ, Dr. Peggy King-Sears (Michael) of Daytona Beach, FL, Janie King Atkinson (Mike) of Jacksonville, FL, and Karen King Scanlan (John) of Greensburg, PA, mourn his loss. John will be dearly missed by multiple nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, and godchildren.
