Coye Dean King, age 81 years, 3 days of London, Kentucky, passed away Monday, July 13, 2020, at the University of Kentucky Albert B. Chandler Hospital.
Memorial services will be held at the First United Methodist Church in London, KY, on August 8, 2020, at 2:00 pm with visitation beginning at noon. Officiating will be Bro. Braxton King and Pastor Sean Ryan.

Coye was born July 10, 1939, in Stearns, KY, to Charles Newton King and Delphia Savannah (Spradlin) King.

Coye was married for 61 years, 4 months and 12 days to Barbara Sue (Stephens) King. Coye worked for many years for National Cash Register (NCR) but in 1974 created his own business, along with Barbara – Cash Registers, Inc. (CRI). Through his remarkable business talents, CRI grew to become the largest cash register company in the state of Kentucky and at the time of his retirement in 1996 had 7 offices, in three states, with over one-hundred employees. During these years, Coye made countless friends in the business community and was well liked and respected. Coye was instrumental, along with a few other local business men, in the founding of what is now the Laurel-London Optimist Club and he served as the first president of that organization. He also served on many boards and committees for various businesses and organizations. Coye’s favorite hobbies were fishing, hunting, working with his hands and golf. He was known by many as a man that could build and fix anything. But what he enjoyed most was to spend time with his family and friends. Coye will be greatly missed as a husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother and friend.

Preceding him in death are his parents; infant brothers, Wilburn and Forest King; a brother, Loyd King; and sisters, Georgia Ross, Virginia Baird, Betty Bowen and Delta Tucker.

Survivors include: wife, Barbara; son Steve King and wife Mary King; son Andrew D. King and wife Aleatha King; grandchildren Andrew Curtis King and wife Ashley King, Carson King, Ethan King, Cameron King; great granddaughter Ansley Jo King; brother, Logan King and wife, Sheila, of Somerset, Kentucky; sisters, Ruth Vanover and husband, Gilbert Jr., of Stearns, Kentucky, Myrtle Burkett of Somerset, Kentucky, and Wanda Gregory and husband, Donald of Covington, Indiana; and a great host of other relatives.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests a donation be made to the First United Methodist Church of London in memory of Coye Dean King.
