My Sincerest sympathy's to John's family at this sad time. I was honored to study music/ukulele taught by Mr. King for the last 3 years in Porland, Oregon. He was such a Master as his skills; and whether teaching or playing, he unknowingly had a demand over his audience, and WE are all better people to have experienced John King. Lest I not forget what seemed like a serious teacher and player - was also a comedian and he made this student want to learn everything I could from him. The world is a better place because of John King, and now Heaven is a better place too.
