WILSON — Funeral services for Bradley Con King, 41, are scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 14, 2014, at the First Baptist Church of Wilson with Brian Baker officiating with the Rev. Jason Williams assisting. Interment will follow at the Vernon Family Cemetery. Services are under the direction and care of Alexander Funeral Home of Wilson.
Bradley Con King was born Sept. 27, 1972, in Healdton, to Clifford Eugene King and Connie Dianne (Vernon) King. He passed from this life Monday at his home in Lone Grove.
Brad was raised in Wilson and graduated high school there in 1990. He was so very proud to have been named after his two great-grandpas, Brad Vernon and Con Nipp. Brad had traits like both of these fine men. He loved building anything and loved the country land. He spent many happy hours driving down the country roads and hiking with his kids in the woods and pastures. Brad loved with all his heart especially his family. He worked from the time of his graduation as a carpenter, helping to build many homes in the area. Brad was always a hit with the ladies whose homes he worked on, because he’d learned from daddy that a house done like mama wants is a happy home. He had suffered an injury which prohibited his carpentry, so he started a class in engineering and had in recent months been employed by Fox Engineering in Ardmore. Brad was a very talented, loving man and he will be greatly missed.
He was preceded in death by his grandpa and grandma, Melvin “Smooth” E. and Meady Mae Vernon; grandpa, Edgar D. King; cousins, Christopher J. Hayes and Cody D. Ponder.
Brad is survived by his children Harli King, Gatlin King and Mckinli King; parents Clifford E. and Connie D. King of Wilson; sisters Brandi Breshears and husband Aaron of Wilson and Bridgit Vaughn and husband Jason of Ardmore; nieces and nephews Gage, Cord and Sadi Breshears, Chandler Lemons and wife Katelyn and their daughter, Lydia and Bayler Vaughn; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins and other family and friends.
Pallbearers are Gatlin King, Chandler Lemons, Gage Breshears, Cord Breshears, Danial Vernon, Lee Vernon, Corey Ponder, Mike Vernon, Nick Hayes, Lucas Hayes, Dillon Vernon and Caleb Vernon.
Honorary bearers are his friends Thunder Gaines and Lupe Rogers; uncles David Vernon, Dale Vernon, Dennis Vernon and Dean Vernon; and brothers-in-law Aaron Breshears and Jason Vaughn.
Visitation will be from 5-7 p.m. today at Alexander Funeral Home of Wilson.
