Obituary for Mary Carroll King

Together in life and now forever in death.
Arthur C. King, Jr. passed away on March 31, 2017 and a year later was joined by his wife, (Mary) Carroll King on March 10, 2018. We know she felt his loss even with the dementia, and he was waiting for her in Heaven.
Art was born in Cadiz, OH on May 10, 1929. His family moved to Cando, North Dakota where he graduated from Cando High School in 1947. He then attended St. John’s University in Minnesota in 1948 playing ice hockey for the college team. He enlisted in the army in 1951, serving for two years until 1953. While on a date at an ice skating rink, he met his future wife, (Mary) Carroll Campbell.
(Mary) Carroll Campbell was born in La Salle, IL on December 10, 1934. Her family moved to Seattle where she attended and graduated from Holy Names Academy in 1953. Carroll loved sewing and crafts in her pastime.
Art has a passion for drag racing his 1952 Chevrolet Belair while Carroll enjoyed watching and cheering him on. He held the ¼ mile record from 1954 and 1956 at Arlington Raceway and Pacific Raceway.
They were married on April 23, 1955 and had four children. During this time, they owned Sullivan Auto Parts in Ballard. They loved to ride motorcycles and camp as a family. Many trips were taken to the ocean, Death Valley, CA and Capital Forest for riding. After their children were grown, they continued taking the motorhome out, and added in golfing and purchasing a vacation home in Arizona.
Art and Carroll are survived by their children, Catherine Zamperin, Kenneth King and Lorraine (Ted) Pinkman, and five grandchildren. Their son, Michael, preceded them in death.
A joint military service will be held on April 5, 2018 at 11am at Tahoma National Cemetery.
