Michael's Story

HOWLAND - Michael Loring King, 64, became a memory January 30, 2016. Michael was born March 29, 1951, in Lincoln, the second son of Leeman and Ruby (Ireland) King.

Mike graduated from PVHS in 1969, served 6 years in the Air National Guard and worked for more than 45 years at Lincoln Tissue and Paper. He enjoyed riding his motorcycle and taking road trips on the weekends, just to see where he would end up. He was looking forward to traveling in his retirement years.

Mike is survived by his wife, Esther Jipson, of Howland; his father, Leeman King, of Howland; two sons, Nathan and Helen King, of Milo and Chris King, of Bangor; daughter, Felicia and Trevor Rodman, of CT; step-daughter, April Hanson, of Lincoln; brothers, Gary, of Howland, Timothy and Andrea, of Florida and Dale and fiancée, Pam, of Enfield; sisters, Jill and fiancé, Tom, of Howland and Diane Gasch, of Edinburg; six grandchildren, MacKenzie King, Savanah and Ian McArthur, Fiona Rodman, Christina Cote and Jimmy Roby, Jr.; several nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his mother, Ruby; sister, Wendy; and brother, Stuart.

The family would like to thank the staff at Beacon Hospice for the wonderful care they provided to Mike and would request that donations in his memory be made to Cancer Care of Maine, Brewer. At Mike's request, there will be no funeral service and burial will be in the spring. Condolences may be expressed at clayfuneralhome.com.
