The League joins Changing Seasons FCU in mourning the passing of board member Robert “Bob” King. We extend our heartfelt condolences to Bob’s friends, family, and credit union colleagues.
“I don’t have the words to express how much I’ll miss Bob at our meetings or his unwavering support of our credit union,” said Rob Picard, President/CEO at Changing Seasons FCU. “He would call me before and after every board meeting—just to check in and see how I was doing. Our last conversation was over 45 minutes. He wanted to make sure I was okay and still loving the job. I told him absolutely yes and thanked him for giving me this opportunity—it was a dream come true! I know he is looking down and cheering us on and we will work hard to ensure we make Bob proud!”
Bob’s obituary as it appeared in the Bangor Daily News is below:
Robert Dwight King, 70, went to be with his Lord and Savior on April 18, 2021. He was born April 21, 1950, in Bangor, the son of Francis Forrest King and Laura (Wyman) King.
Bob graduated from Orono High School in 1968. He played football and was a member of the track team, where he held a couple of records that lasted over 30 years. Bob also graduated from Husson University with a master’s degree in accounting. Bob enjoyed playing his guitar in several bands throughout the years and he loved building amplifiers. Bob will be missed as part of the New Beginnings Church Worship team.
After high school, Bob joined the Army National Guard and started working for Bangor Hydro, where he would remain until retiring after 40 plus years. While there, Bob received the President’s Award for Honesty and Integrity – a trait he carried through his life and passed on to his children and grandchildren.
Bob would marry the love of his life, Anne (Russell) King. Together, for over 50 years, they would build a family that was most cherished of things to Bob. He was an avid New York Giants fan, enjoying the opportunity to attend a couple of games with his two sons, his grandson and two sons-in-law.
In addition to his wife, Anne, Bob is survived by his children, Stacy and husband, Jeff, and their daughters, Kaylie and husband, Alex, and Emily; Julie and husband, James, and their sons, Jimmy and Noah; Matthew and wife, Beth, and their children, Mason K., Aiden, and Mason C.; and the youngest son, Andrew (APK as Bob called him); brothers, David, Tommy, and Richard and wife, Dayna, and their families. In addition to Bob’s parents, he was predeceased by a brother, Charles.
Bob will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. He was dubbed “DB” King. His extended family of nieces, nephews and in-laws will also feel his loss tremendously. Bob was also especially fond of his Pastor, Paul Warf. Bob loved his family more than anything. His favorite pastime was doing day-trips with his wife.
Friends may gather with the family from 5-7 PM, Thursday, April 22, 2021, at Brookings-Smith, 133 Center Street, Bangor. Please be mindful of others by practicing social distancing and wearing a face covering. Staff will be conducting contract tracing and be aware that the number of people allowed in the building at one time is limited. Condolences to the family may be expressed at BrookingsSmith.com.
