To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted; a time to kill and a time to heal; a time to break down and a time to build up; a time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to get and a time to lose; a time to keep and a time to cast away; a time to rend and a time to sew; a time to keep silence and a time to speak; a time to love and a time to hate; a time of war and a time of peace.
Lacy N. King was born on November 5, 1965, in Tallulah, LA. Lacy was adopted by his loving parents, Thomas and Tressie King. At an early age, Lacy sought God as his comforter, healer, protector, and friend. He was baptized in his youth at Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, under the leadership of Pastor Willie Hardy. Later in life, Lacy joined First Kingdom Missionary Baptist Church, under the leadership of Pastor Kennie Ramsey, where he attended until he was called to Glory. Lacy served on the Deacon Board at Antioch Missionary Baptist Church.
Lacy was a 1983 honors graduate of Reuben McCall Senior High School.
Lacy was a familiar face around his community, especially at the Compress. If you ever made a drive around the Compress, you possibly would have seen him on the forklift at Staplcotn.
“Papa” Lacy enjoyed being with his family and friends. He had a love and fondness for outdoors and sportsmanship, especially hunting and fishing. He was a member of Hunter Hunting Club.
On February 26, 2021, the Lord beckoned for our beloved Lacy to come lay down his burdens and rest. He quietly and submissively answered to HIS call.
Lacy was preceded in death by his parents, Thomas and Tressie King, and a beloved sister, Octavia Willis.
He leaves to cherish his memories: a loving wife of over 20 years, Ora; one son, Lacy King, Jr. (Mari) of Las Vegas, NV; and an extended son, Reggie Pinkney, and daughter, Deanna Pinkney, both of Tallulah, LA. He also leaves behind a special sister, Annette Brown (Ronald) of Gilmer, TX; brothers and sisters-in-law, Oliver (Antoinette) of Baton Rouge, LA, Louis (Hellan) of Riverside, CA, Alvin of Tallulah, LA, Christine (C.J.) of Tallulah, LA, Bessie of Tallulah, LA, Byron of Zachary, LA, Larry (Kim) of Monroe, LA, and Lonnie (Earline) of Tallulah, LA. He had a special connection of brotherhood and friendship with Roy Alexander; he also had a special connection with Kizzy (Earnest) Wilmore.
