Ed King

Wichita, Kansas


When 55-year-old Ed King was killed Wednesday on his way to fight a Reno County fire, he was doing what he loved, a close friend said. It wasn’t that he was necessarily preparing to fight a fire. It was that he was doing something to help, the friend said.

Not sure what to say?

Ed was a really nice guy. He was a customer of ours for many years and it was always a pleasure doing work for him. Me and my dad were in Turon the day of the accident and I was so shocked to hear about his passing that night on the news. Ed will always be missed!

p.s. My prayers go out to Ed's family and friends..as Im sure they are still having a hard time dealing with their loss. I would have signed this page alot sooner I'f I would have known there was such a page.

Ed was my uncle by marriage, but I thought of him as a blood uncle. We will miss all the times at Marion Lake with him and also all the family get togethers. We love you Ed and will never forget you.

It has been a long time since I saw Ed but he was a good friend and so kind and helpfull to my parents Homer and Eileen - my thoughts go out to all of his family espically my classmate his sister Colleen

Ed was a good bus driver - he let us do what we wanted. He never nagged. He was cool and had a good sense of humor. Kids will miss him.

Dear family,
I grew up knowing Ed and the family very well. It was really a shock when I heard the news of his passing. I have very fond memories of the Body Shop, going to Oklahoma (Kaw Lake) on a couple of vacations, and simple everyday interactions with Ed and his family. Our family really enjoyed Ed, and the help that he provided us over the years. I have been away from Turon for quite awhile, but will still miss him greatly. Our sympathies are with you,
Rob, Jen,...

Our sympathy and prayers are with you.

Ed King was my cousin. His mom and my dad were brother and sister. I haven't seen Ed in years but my prayers are with the family of Ed.

King Family,
I am so glad I had the chance to know Ed. For the three years as the area technician for South Central Telephone I had alot of fun visiting with Ed. Usually he was trying to sell me one of his bird dog pups he thought so much of. Ed was always friendly, and helpfull.
He will for sure be missed by all.
My deepest sympathies,
Randie Landwehr
