Robert Lynn King, II (Bob), age 74 of Marietta, GA passed away on November 22, 2016. A visitation will be held on Monday, November 28 from 5 until 8 pm at H.M. Patterson and Son Canton Hill Chapel, Marietta. A Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, November 29 at 10:30 am at St. Michael the Archangel Church, Woodstock. Burial will follow at the Georgia National Cemetery in Canton.

Bob was born in Orange, NJ on October 26, 1942. He was proud to be the first in his family to attend college and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Finance from Seton Hall University. After graduation, Bob went on to serve in the United States Army where he earned the rank of First Lieutenant. Although he might appear on paper as a shrewd, hardworking, no nonsense man of finance, Bob was mostly known for his big personality and his extroverted qualities. He loved to make people laugh, always had a joke, and would make it a point to catch up with friends and neighbors at any given chance. Keeping in touch with his friends was important, even if he hadn't seen them in decades. Once you were a friend of Bob's, you were a friend for life. His family knew him as a loving husband, an unwavering provider, and a proud father and grandfather. Bob was a tough guy with a soft heart who showed his love through acts of service and quality time. Regardless of the situation or stage of life, he was eager to help anyone in his family in any capacity, and was frequently called upon for sound advice.

Bob is preceded in death by his parents: Robert and Elsie King and daughter, Elizabeth Anne King. He is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Rose Anne King and children: Kathleen Lynne (Thomas) Brooks, Robert Lynn (Brian) King, III, Lisa Anne (Joshua) Dobstaff, and Ryan Michael King. He was Grandpa to Cole, Caroline, Mary Grace, Jack, John, Matthew, William, Henry, James, and Charlie. Bob is also survived by his brother, Timothy James King and aunt, Dorothy Knapp. He will be greatly missed.
