John A. King, age 90, of Middletown, DE, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family on Tuesday, June 21, 2022.

Born in Evergreen, AL, on November 2, 1931, he was a son of the late John and Roena (Maldon) King. John retired from Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital where he worked for many dedicated years in the environmental services department.
