OLYMPIA — Wilbur D. King, formerly of Nahcotta, passed away Sept. 30, 2013, at St. Peter’s Hospital in Olympia.

Willie so enjoyed working in his shop and yard. He was a cabinetmaker by trade and retired from McNeil Island Penitentiary. Willie belonged to the Peninsula Senior Activity Center, the Eagles and the Moose lodges. He loved his trips with Milo and friends on Milo’s bus. He was a kind and gentle man who will be missed by his family and many friends.

His daughter, Janet, formerly of Auburn preceded him in death.
