Wayne King Obituary, Death – I am writing to notify you of the passing of Wayne King Sr., who served for a significant amount of time as the Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 631. It is with the deepest regret that I am required to do so. He served in this capacity for a considerable amount of time.
During his tenure as a Business Agent at the Nevada Test Site, which lasted for more than a decade, Brother King was dedicated to providing service to the members of Teamsters Local 631. During that time, he was able to contribute to the company in a way that was helpful.
In 2005, Wayne’s campaign for the presidency of the Teamsters Local 631 union was successful, and he was subsequently elected to that position. He was elected to the position of Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 631 in 2006, and he continued to serve in that capacity until 2009. Up until 2009, he was the union’s representative in this role.
Connie King, Brother King’s wife, as well as a sizeable number of his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, have all outlived him. Brother King was also predeceased by a great-grandchild. In addition, Connie King has made it. During this trying time, Brother King and his family are in our thoughts and prayers. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
When I first met Wayne, he was working for my company in the capacity of an agent. Since then, we’ve become good friends. I did not have a lot of experience when it came to being a shop steward, so it was difficult for me. When Wayne took me under his wing, he served as a mentor to me and imparted a great deal of his extensive body of knowledge to me.
During this difficult time, I want his wife Connie, and the rest of his family to know that I am thinking about them and praying for them. I want them to know that I am thinking about them and praying for them. Fraternally, Tommy Blitsch Teamsters Local 631’s Secretary and Treasurer are the same individual.
