Harry L. King

SHOREWOOD, Ill. – Mr. Harry L. “Junior” King, 61, of Shorewood, Ill., and formerly of Plainfield, Ill., passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, Aug. 25, 2013, after a courageous battle against cancer.

Harry was born Aug. 14, 1952, in DeKalb, Ill., to the late John “Ray” and Floris (Clarke) King.

He is survived by his wife of 20 years, Karen A. (Hobson) King of Shorewood; his children, Jonathan (Alicia) King of San Lorenzo, Calif., Garreth King of Sunnyvale, Calif., and Christina (James) Spiros, Jason Shireman, Jennifer (Stephen) Kenney and Katharin (Shaun) Webb, all of Minooka, Ill.; grandchildren, Alexandria Spiros, Adam Shireman, Zavier King, Victoria Shireman, Isaiah King, Kyra Kenney, Samuel Webb, Sienna King, Carter Kenney, Sadie Webb and Jackson Kenney; one brother, Robert King; four sisters, Opal Larson, Mary King, Rosie Wogoman and Sherry King; and several nieces and nephews.

A member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles Lodge 1024 in Morris, Mr. King was employed with IDOT in Morris the past 12 years, and previously with J. I. Case International for over 20 years. He was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran. 

Harry loved to hunt and fish, but his true passion was spending time with his grandkids. He will fondly be remembered for being a very generous, giving person to friends and strangers alike.

As it was Harry’s wish, cremation rites have been accorded. All friends and relatives are invited to gather to celebrate his life from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28, at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Lodge, 120 Liberty St., Morris.

In lieu of flowers, memorials in his name to the American Cancer Society or Joliet Area Community Hospice would be appreciated.
