James S. King

March 11, 1956 – February 7, 2022

VISITATION: Friday, February 18th from 10am to 11am at the West Center Chapel, followed by FUNERAL SERVICE at 11am.  GRAVESIDE SERVICE: Friday, Feb. 18th at 1pm at Omaha National Cemetery with Military Honors by Millard American Legion Post 374/VFW Post 8334.  Reception for family and friends at Azteca Family Mexican Restaurant, 9429 S. 142ns Street, Omaha, NE.


Preceded in death by parents, Thomas James King and Hazel “Taffy” King; maternal grandparents, Elmer and Carolyn Meth; paternal grandparents, Alfred and Dorothea King; loving sisters, Christine King, and Susan King-Morris.  Survived by his loving and devoted wife of 34 years, JoAngela Evans King; two beloved daughters, Jaime and Jasmine King; younger brother, Matthew King; greatly admired maternal aunt, Nina Jean Meth; seven beautiful nieces: Jennie, Lia, Carrie, Kassie, Melissa, Angela, and Che’Lee; 13 grandnieces and grandnephews; 8 great-grandnieces and great-grandnephews; mother-in-law, Joanne Conway Evans; brothers-in-law, Mel Barry Evans (Ester) and Kevin C. Evans (Nouzha) who join the King family in deepest sympathy and bereavement.

Jim was a graduate of Northwest High School in Omaha and the University of Nebraska at Omaha.  Following his formal education, he proudly enlisted in the United States Marine Corps where he remained on active duty from 1975 through 1979.  Jim was given an honorable and medical discharge from the Marine Corps in 1979. 

Jim joined his wife, JoAngela, in building a temporary services operation entitled Protemps which they ran successfully for a period of 14 years until ill health prompted its closing in 2013. 

A stalwart soldier to his family, Jim will be sorely missed and always remembered for his strength, courage, sense of humor, warm personality, and sharp wit.  His family remembers him as their protector and a strong entertaining presence in their home and daily lives.  The family said: “We rest assured that our wonderful husband and father is now free from pain and suffering, and safely in the presence of our heavenly Father, Lord Jesus Christ and Savoir.”

    I am Jim’s cousin. My mother is Inez Rohrich, who is Tommy’s sister and Jim’s aunt. We send our deepest sympathy in the loss of Jim. We haven’t seen Jim for many years, but mom has fond memories of Tommy and his family. She talks of a time she and Dad visited you both in Omaha. I will always remember Jim’s laugh! Not many members of the King family left. My Dad died a little over a year ago. Mom continues to live in Wood River. She has dementia alzheimer’s. She still knows us, but needs people to help care for her. We pray that you have many good memories of Jim that are a comfort to you at this difficult time. We also pray that God wraps his loving arms around you and gives you a peace. .
