Raymond W. (Buddy) King Obituary
NEWTON -- Raymond (Buddy) W. King, of Newton, age 69, died unexpectedly of natural causes Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2018, at his brother Ronald's home in Houston, Texas, while on vacation.

Ray was born on Oct. 29, 1948, in Newton. He graduated from Newton High School. After his tour in the Army he accepted a position as a member of Sussex County Sheriff's Department, where he served until retirement. Except for his time in the Army, he had remained a lifelong resident of Sussex County.

Ray was a very socially active man who was deeply involved in many organizations, including the Blue Knights NJ IX, Rolling Thunder and the Newton Moose Lodge #432 for the majority of his life. He also had a disc jockey business, which brought him many years of enjoyment. His family and friends will always remember him as a very kind person that would do anything for anyone at any time.

Ray is survived by his two sisters, Marie Morris, of St. Peters, Mo., and Judith King Marlowe, of North Fort Myers, Fla.; and two brothers, Ronald Premock, of Houston, Texas, and Douglas King, of Milford, Pa. Ray also had two sisters-in-law and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father, Harle King, and mother, Norma King, of West Palm Beach, Fla.; his brother, Dennis F. Premock (KIA), of Franklin; and his brother, Michael King, of Newton.

A service to celebrate Ray's life will be held at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, at the Harmony Lodge #8, 519 US-206, Newton. In lieu of flowers, the family would like to suggest making donations to the Blue Knights NJ IX, P.O. Box 251, Lake Hopatcong, NJ 07849 or Newton Moose Lodge, 214 Swartswood Road, Newton, NJ 07860, in honor of Ray's memory.
