Grandpa King

Yesterday, March 10th, my father passed away. As most of you know, he was much more than a father to me. He was my best friend, my go to person, and truly the most amazing man I've ever known.

The past few months have been extremely difficult for him. He was really keeping it together for the family and holding on staying strong. After a simple procedure, my dad's heart finally gave in. It lasted much longer than any doctor could have dreamed of but yesterday, it was tired and worn out. He left us very peacefully with Rob and Estee holding his hand.

A reception will be held in LA on Saturday at 2pm.

Dad, you will always be with me. Your heart lives on in mine. Thank you for being more than I could ever ask for. Thank you for taking care of me all these years. Thank you for always listening, for standing by me through tough times, for trusting me with your decisions, and for making me who I am today.

I miss you terribly.


  1. I'm very sorry to hear this Teah. If there is anything I can do definitely let me know.

  2. Teah and the entire family,

    Our thoughts are with you and of course, if there is anything we can do, please don't hesitate to let us know.
    Your Dad is out of his pain now. In our tradition we offer: "May His Memory Be Eternal"
    Love, Rich and Pat

  3. Teah, I'm sorry to hear about your dad. There is obviously no good time or way for someone whom you care about to die, and knowing how close you were to him I'm sure that this is a difficult time for you. Please let me know if there is anything you need.

    Love, Steisy
