king_steven_gregorySteven Gregory King, 48, of Dublin, Va., born January 3, 1962, died suddenly September 12, 2010. Steve was a loving father, husband, son, brother, and friend. He was known for his robust nature and found enjoyment in outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, camping, and boating. Steve was family focused and loved family activities, especially large extended family gatherings. He often had a prank to play or an endless reminder of a blunder someone had made. Steve’s smile and expressive eyes let people know he cared for them, and he was often the first to offer help. He was a Radford Bobcat, but his son’s and daughter’s activities had him watching many Pulaski Cougar games and matches. Steve worked at Yokohama Tire in Salem for 25 years as a supervisor and plant planner. He is sadly missed, until he is met again, by his large and loving family. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Frances and Truman McCraw and Etha Janey; his father-in-law, John East Jr.; and his cousin, Lisa Gravely Brown. Survivors include his loving wife of 24 years, Regina East King; his son, Tyler King and daughter, Lauren Brooke King; his parents, Bill and Pat King, of Claytor Lake; brother, Mike King and his wife, Leslie and their children, Lydia and James Michael, of Pulaski; loving sister, Beth King, of Roanoke; mother-in-law, Joyce East, of Christiansburg; sister-in-law, Chelista Linkous and husband, Todd and their daughter, Ashley, of Christiansburg; brother-inlaw, Karry East and wife, Stephanie and their children, Brittany East, Kymber Mitchell, Ryan East, Alexya East and Karah East, of Dublin; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. A celebration of life service will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, September 15, 2010, at the Pulaski Church of God on Bob White Blvd. with Bishop Jerry Collins officiating.
