Ty Brayden King, 16, son of Justin B. King of Oklahoma City, Okla., and Deni L. King-Poteet and Justin Poteet of Snowflake, was suddenly taken from us on Thursday, April 3, 2014. The public memorial service will begin at 2 o’clock this afternoon (April 9) at Calvary Chapel Snowflake, 311 S. First East.
Ty was born at Ft. Stewart, Ga., on Nov. 27, 1997.
During his short life, Ty enjoyed NASCAR races, hunting and camping, and hanging out with his friends, and developed a love for longboarding. He could brighten anyone’s day by just telling a joke or simply giving a smile. Anyone who got to know him could recognize his leadership qualities.
Survivors include his parents; four siblings, Taryn King, Jesse Poteet, JaciLynn Poteet and Janella Poteet; his paternal grandparents, Calvin King, and Steve and Linda Virtue, and great-grandmother, Opal King; his maternal grandparents, Charles and Diana Moyers; his step-grandparents, John and Doris Poteet, and Bonnie Poteet; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Ty King Memorial Fund at Wells Fargo Bank, Snowflake Branch.
