Michael Elwood King, age 58, longtime Oak Harbor resident and electrical contractor, passed away suddenly Monday, Jan. 19, 2015, at Skagit Valley Hospital.

Mike was born in Warren, Ohio, March 24, 1956, to Leon W. King and Ellen M. Schultz. At the age of 11, Mike moved with his family to San Gabriel, Calif. He attended schools there, graduating from Rosemead High School in 1974. Mike served in the U.S. Air Force for two years. He later married Karen Delainey April 8, 1996, in Santa Barbara, Calif. The couple resided in LaVerne, Calif. They moved to Oak Harbor in 1995-96. Mike was an electrician and became owner of AC/DC Electric.

Mike was an active outdoorsman and enjoyed life to the fullest extent. He had his pilot’s license, was a gun enthusiast, and enjoyed hunting and fishing. His other pursuits included opera, scuba diving, skiing, motorcycling, golf, bowling, Renaissance fairs, fencing, banjo playing, ballroom and line dancing, to name just a few. Mike was gregarious and likable and known as somewhat of a “flirt,” as well. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge.

Mike is survived by his mother, Marjorie Whitehead, of Las Vegas, who was sister to his adoptive mother, Ellen Floen, who passed away in 2010; two sisters, Sharon King, of Las Vegas, and Jennifer Newsom and husband Tom, of Bakersfield, Calif.; also, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and many friends. He was preceded in death by his wife Karen in 2003, as well as by his adoptive mother Ellen.

Visitation will be 5-8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 30, 2015, at Whidbey Memorial Chapel. A private family graveside service will be held at Sunnyside Cemetery, followed by a memorial service at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 31, at Oak Harbor Church of the Nazarene, 1100 W. Whidbey Ave. Memorials are suggested to the National Rifle Association. Family and friends are encouraged to share memories and condolences at www.whidbeymemorial.com
