Mr. Christopher Andre King

June 20, 1967 — April 11, 2024

Albany, Georgia

Christopher King was born on June 20 th , 1967 to the late Hebert Augustus & Brunette Moss King (of Fitzgerald) in Ocilla, Ga.

He was the center of the Nicholls King Boys, older brother Byron King and younger brother Billy King. His sisters Martisa and Tammy broke up the boy party but later they gained their youngest brother Zavian to keep the boys in the majority. He spent his childhood split between winters in New York and summers in Georgia.

He graduated from DeWitt Clinton High School in the Bronx, NY in 1987 where he was most known for his basketball skills. Shortly after high school he joined the Army National Guard, for small amount of time. He held many roles and positions over the years and his skills were vast and varied. Chris could troubleshoot equipment issues, repair/build almost anything, analyze data but yet connect with people in a real way. It was amazing at how he was literally good at everything! His natural curiosity of life led him down many paths; From DJing, to truck driving, to manufacturing. 18 of his years were spent working for Proctor & Gamble. His most recent position was the EH&S Manager at SASCO chemical company. He was also the Owner and creator of Kingscorn Gourmet Popcorn & Sweets. While he himself didn’t even eat popcorn, he loved formulating thenew flavors and coming up with new products and ideas. He was a self- proclaimed serial entrepreneur as he over years did video production and editing (Preach That and Beyond the Walls Media), owned EzeeCopy in Tifton Georgia, and a mobile photo booth (Tap and Smile).

He was a lover of music, a lifetime learner, had endless curiosity and energy and was a stubborn force to be reckoned with. He was a
facilitator, voice of reason, loyal comrade, giver, and all-around good guy. An unrelenting advocate for being who you are and doing what
you want. He was loud, funny, intelligent, however also quiet, deep and sincere. There is so much more that should be said, but in the end, what he did was make our world brighter. He was one of a kind. Chris will never be forgotten but forever remembered and missed by all who were fortunate enough to know him. Chris was from a large family and that was key to who he was as a person. He had dozens of aunts/uncles and hundreds of cousins. And yet somehow he was able to connect in a special way to each one of them.

The center of his world however was his children and grandchildren. His son Camario Maurice King (Fitzgerald,Ga) and his daughter Candera King-Wakefield (Albany,Ga). He loved his children and always wanted to give them tools and keys to making their lives better than his had been. He also had an infant son Montouris King who preceded him in death. His grandchildren who he adored, Corbin King, Samara Wakefield, and Cadell Wakefield. Whatever they were doing he was going to be right there in the middle of it. Their Papa was just a big kid when they were around, and they rarely were told no by him for anything.

His beloved wife, Kamara were happily married for 15 years and loved spending time together. You rarely saw one without the other. They traveled, sang, danced, and ate whenever possible. Although he was previously allergic to cats he became the best cat daddy ever to Shadow, Saki, Oliver and Lynlee.

A funeral service will be held on Saturday, April 20th, at 1:00 PM at Poteat Wakefield Chapel. There will be a Celebration of Life gathering immediately following the memorial service at his home.
