King died today at 1600 local time, in Fairbanks Memorial Hospital.

I have no further information at this time.

FWIW, he accepted Christ a couple of weeks ago.

I'm going to miss the man more than I can tell you. He was a generous man, and a font of knowledge.

I am shocked. Simply shocked.

Rest in peace, sir. May you rest easily in God's light.

Prayers for him.

Our King Sargent? I didn't know the man outside of these forums, but he seemed like a fine fellow, and I will miss his contributions.

Rest in Peace.

Just saw the news on Tomas' Facebook page. People may discount the relationships built online, but I have to say I'm literally in tears over the news that I've lost such a relationship. I always enjoyed reading King's posts and imagined he'd be the kind of person I could spend hours talking about anything and come out far wiser than when I went in.

RIP King. This place won't be the same without you. *sniffle* :(

(for the first bit) I can neither confirm nor deny.... <_< :D

As for the rest, true. Same here, always enjoyed reading his posts, and yes that is my impression as well.

Damn -- like others have said, I've never met or spoken to the guy but after four-odd years on this forum I felt like I really knew him.

Sounds like he got some good living in at the end, though, with his travels and such.

RIP mister.

Alas I did not know (as most here) King Sargent in person, however based on his online performance here, he was a very fine fellow.
Rest in peace, King, I'll miss you :(
