Dyersburg, TN (Former resident of Racine, WI – Hi, My name is Derwin O’Keith King. I was born October 13, 1966, in Racine, Wisconsin to the union of Martin and Wilma (nee: Hardin) King.
I received my formal education in the Racine Unified School District. I accepted Christ at an early age in which I was baptised and became a member of Greater Mount Eagle Baptist Church, under the leadership of the late Rev. Charles E. Thornhill.
In my leisure I loved to cook not only for myself, but for others also.
I departed this life on September 22, 2021, in Jackson, Tennessee. I was preceded in death by my father Martin King and a few other loved ones (too many to name).
I leave to cherish my memories: My loving mother Wilma King. My siblings Kaundlen Anderson, Byron Riley, April Puryear, Taylor-Jordan Puryear, Linda Mullens, Lisa (Gregg) Mckenzie, Constance (Robert) Cook, Sylvester Gladney, Roberta Robertson, Charles Robertson and Ronald Robertson. My former wife Markeeta Pickett King and a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and many, many friends.
Derwin O’Keith King, age 54, passed away on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at Jackson-Madison County General Hospital in Jackson, Tennessee. A Celebration of His Life will be held on Friday, October 1, 2021 6:00pm in the chapel of Draeger-Langendorf Funeral Home, 4600 County Line Rd., Racine, Wisconsin. Visitation will be in the chapel 4:00pm – 6:00pm.
