Jerry “Cisco” King passed away on April 9, 2022 at the age of 71. Cisco is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Debbie Parrish King. He is also survived by his son Rodney (Mary Ann) and two grandsons that were the love of his life, Beau and Joseph King; and his sisters Betty Duke and Frances Campbell (Tommy), sister-in-law Linda Hayes (Randy), and many extended family members.

Cisco was born in Sylacauga, AL, graduated from B.B. Comer School and got his BS degree from Auburn University. He worked at Avondale Mills in Sylacauga. He retired from Briggs and Stratton in Auburn. He then continued to work part time for Southern Union State Community College in Opelika.

He never missed an opportunity to be with them.

The family would like to thank friends, family and neighbors for helping to take care of Cisco with any need that arose. The family would also like to thank Compassus Hospice, Bethany House and all other health care workers for the love and compassion they gave to Cisco.
