Anyone wishing to pay respect or support the King family is welcome and will be appreciated. This is a casual event, the way my dad would have wanted it.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in memory of Jeff may be directed to the Liberty Aviation Museum, 3515 E. State Rd., Port Clinton, OH. 43452 It is much more than an airplane museum. They do a great service honoring our nation; it’s military, and serving the community.
