AUBURN — Jim King, 56, of Lewiston, quietly passed away in the early morning hours of Jan. 15, with Lindy by his side. Jim had lived with and survived terminal cancer for four years with grace and dignity.

He was born on July 10, 1954, the son of Ernest and Lillian King. He was educated in Lewiston schools and Leavitt Area High School.

As a young boy, his father often took him hiking in the white mountains and Mt. Katahdin, where he developed his love and respect of nature. He was at home in the solitude of the woods, mountains, lakes and ocean. He had a special bond with all of God’s creatures.

He was self-employed as a stone mason most of his life. He created many beautiful and awe-inspiring works of art throughout Maine and New England. He truly was an artist.

Other than Lindy, he is survived by his mother, Lillian of Auburn; brother, Allan of Michigan; sister, Maryjane King and husband, David Collins, of Auburn; nephews, Michael and Brian Rouleau and their families; special uncle, Roland Soucy and his wife, Pat; other aunts and uncles and cousins; and close friends, Bob Blancatto, Sunny Bellefleur, Steve Marston, Gary Moody, and many, many more.

Special thanks to Dr. Pandey and the staff at St. Mary’s Infusion Center for affording him a good quality of life in his journey. Also, many thanks to the staff at the Hospice House for keeping him comfortable in his final day. All of these people truly are angels.

He was predeceased by his father, Ernest; his beloved dog, Luke; and many good friends, who are surely smiling today-so-let the party in Heaven begin!

Love you Jimbo.
