Hello, and brings me with a heavy heart to announce that a member on this forum, dking777, passed away just under two months ago on January 28th at the age of 59 in California. I’ve never met David Paul King in person, but he helped me through a difficult time in my life at the end of the 2000s – beginning of the 2010s. I wanted to meet him back around that time, but David was very reserved to some of the people he met on the Internet. I only found out about David’s passing recently because I went to check up on his Facebook a few days ago only to see his father had announced his passing back in January, along with a birthday wish to him earlier this month on what would have been David’s 60th birthday. During the last few months of his life, he made a lot of posts from a hospital where he underwent a few medical procedures including surgery, I am guessing he passed from a complication. David wrote down a lot of stories, but a lot of them were on a website he had earlier in the 2010s that is no longer up. The Wayback Machine or archive.org unfortunately did not archive many of his blog posts, and I thought most of those stories were now gone. I recalled his Internet handle, “dking777” and searched for that to see what it would bring up. Among the results were some posts here on this forum, and I am elated to see that at least some of his stories he has written out are on here. Some other forums he used to post on such as the ones for near-death.com and NDERF are now gone, and I thought his online footprint in forums was gone forever. I noticed David hasn’t been active on here since 2016, though it appears he has been around since 2003 and has been intermittent with his activity. It appears no public obituary has been made unfortunately, and his Facebook profile wasn’t public either so linking it won’t show the posts his father made. If someone really wants me to, the most I can do is take screenshots of the posts. A part of me wishes I kept in contact with David more, but that is a bygone now.
