I have many fond memories of Coach King. He was always thoughtful and really cared about others. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Coach King was my basketball coach for three years at Cochran High School.

Johnny was such a wonderful family friend. He possessed so many Christian qualities...kind, loving, considerate, and compassionate, just to name a few. So many heartfelt memories of good times with Johnny will be cherished by the Brooks family. Nancy and loved ones, we will be praying for your strength and comfort. In memory of our friend...GO DAWGS! Love you, Johnny King!

I was a former student of his in the Cochran school when he was there. He attended our reunions and always approachable. Very much respected as an educator and a coach.
