Paul King

Aug. 2, 1926 — Aug. 20, 2013

Paul King, a Pollock Pines resident, died Aug. 20, 2013. He was 87. He was born in San Francisco, Calif., and raised in San Jose, Calif, moving to Pollock Pines, Calif., in 1997. He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Annabell; their son, Martin; daughter-in-law, Desiree; grandsons, Kyle, Tyler and David; his brother, William W. King; sister-in-law, Ann; and nephew, David.

As a young man, Paul was a World War II veteran, serving in the Air Force as a radio mechanic. He received two medals during his service. He was passionate about bicycling and was even asked to try out for the U.S. Olympic Bike Racing team in his early 20s. He owned a Schwinn bicycle dealership in San Jose, Calif., for 30 years called Paul’s Cycles and earned many awards for his sales. In the early 1960s he started a DJ company called King Music Service, making him the “first mobile DJ in the country,” according to an article done by Billboard Magazine. He loved good dance music and continued being a DJ until 2010, often playing music for the Twilight Dances at the Pollock Pines Community Center. Through 2012, he also had a business called King’s Audio Transfer, where he would take old recordings mailed to him from customers all over the U.S. and transfer them onto CDs to preserve them for continued listening.

Paul battled cancer for three years before he lost the fight. He was truly a fine man, liked by all. He was much loved by his family and now truly missed.

There will be a private funeral. Those who knew Paul and want to give a gift may do so by making a memorial donation to Pollock Pines Community Center, P.O. Box 1195, Pollock Pines, CA 95726. Online condolences may be posted at chapelofthepinesfunerals.com.
