OBITUARY:
Sheldon Wills King, 58, of Atlanta Georgia, passed away, July 17th 2019. "Shelly" King, son of the late Sherman and Gloria King, was born June 26, 1961 in Chicago Illinois. He was united in marriage to Maxine Douglas-King and is survived by his wife of 14 years. Sheldon attended St. Leo Elementary and Harlan High School in Chicago. His love of chess started at ten years old. Without a regular partner to practice with, he taught his younger sisters to play, and made them practice with him. He had many interests in elementary school, but in high school, he decided to be laser-focused on those he was most passionate about. His quest for economic and social equality led him to lead the Economics and Debate teams, and become a member of student council. Despite the then-trend for the preppy casual attire, Sheldon wore a suit and tie to high school everyday, as he deemed it necessary for the seriousness of the debates for which he was always preparing. He attended the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he immersed himself in the study of economics. His love of people and God deepened during this time as well, and he found a church home at Trinity United Church of God and Apostolic Church of God, attending several days a week. His many social causes, including Habitat for Humanity, took him across the country and across the globe, including New York and South Africa. He served as President & CEO of Ambassador Capital Group, and a social justice activist alongside many leaders across the country. Shelly was a force to reckon with and an inspiration to all who knew him. He was a generous and caring person with a great sense of humor. His enormous personality, wealth of selflessness, breadth of knowledge, and friendly smile will be missed by all. Survivors include his sisters, Rosemarie Dodd (Wardell), Sharon McDonald (Jerry), Natasha Singley (Bob) of New York, Jacqueline King of Atlanta, Ga, Reava King and Katherine King; and a long list of relatives and friends.

Maxine: I'm so very sorry to hear about your husband. From what I read in his obituary, I'm sure you are quite confident in a sweet reunion someday. Until then, I hope you have wonderful memories to hold in your heart. Please know that you can stop by my office, sit a spell or reach out if you have a need. I'll be praying for comfort for you.
