Mr. William “Buddy” Barnwell King, age 71, of Blackshear, died Saturday night (12/1/18) at the Hospice Satilla Hospice House following an extended illness.

Born November 19, 1947 in Offerman, Georgia, he was a son of the late William Hampton and Alma Crosby King. He was a veteran, having served in the US Army, being stationed in Thailand during the Vietnam War. He returned to Pierce County where he was employed as a machinist for CSX Transportation, retiring in 1997. 

He will be remembered as a simple man of few words, only speaking what he felt needed to be said. He was also an avid reader and historian and was of the Baptist faith.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his two brothers-in-law, James Raulerson and Tommy Sims.

Survivors include his wife of 47 years, Susan Smith King of Blackshear; three daughters, Tonya Williams (husband David) of Brantley County, Karen King and Paula McCauley (husband Lindsey), all of Blackshear; nine grandchildren, Brittany Williams of Phenix City, AL, Gaven Williams, Levi Williams, and Curtis King, all of Brantley County, Maven Fulton, Sarah Fulton, Hannah McCauley, Kimberlyn McCauley and Shelby Lee, all of Blackshear; 4 great-grandchildren, Conner and Caylee Denton, both of Phenix City, AL, Caydon Fulton and Rayla Crawford, both of Blackshear; 2 sisters, Martha Raulerson and Laverne Sims, both of Blackshear; 2 nephews, Jimmy Raulerson (wife Pretzel) of Newport, VA and Keith Sims of Blackshear; a special sister-in-law, Carolyn Smith of Blackshear; his cat and beloved companion, Sable King; and several other relatives.
