Ellenton, Fla. — Ancel Nathan King lived a full and interesting life that came to an end Feb. 28, 2018. Life for Nate began 75 years earlier, Feb. 27, 1943, in Pensacola, Fla. He was raised by his dedicated and loving parents, Ancel and Avis. His immediate family would later grow to include brother Robert and sisters Susan, Cindy, Eileen and Karen.

Nate spent his years living on the East Coast; throughout New England, New York and the Southeast. He lived a life full of friends and unique experiences as he spent time traveling with his wife and children as a minister of Jehovah's Witnesses. Together they lived in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Kentucky, South Carolina and most recently, Florida.

He was a devoted husband and father. His focus was helping people spiritually. You could always find him with his family studying what the Bible teaches, having a family meal and saying evening prayers.

He was a new age copyist -- he recorded incidents and dates like a historian, for which he was sometimes known as "the Count." To his wife he was simply the love of her life. Not once was he unkind to his supportive soulmate. As he fell asleep, Nate's singular hope was to wake up to his family again in a kinder and gentler world.

Nate is survived by his darling wife of 56 years, Beth (Mildred E King); their five children, Brian King, Jeff King, Carleen King, Amy Aleo and Andrew King, along with their spouses; and 11 grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He is also survived by all of his sisters and his wonderful mother, Avis. He was predeceased by his brother Robert and father Ancel.

Everyone who had a part in his life misses him dearly. As the French say, "Au revoir, et a bientot!."
