Frank was born on August 27, 1940 in Akron, Colorado to Carl and Pearl King. In his teen years, his family moved to Greeley, CO where he graduated from high school.

Frank was a lifelong learner following his graduation from Briercrest Bible College in Saskatchewan, Canada with his certificate in Christian Children's Education. He moved to central Montana where he met his wife, Jewel Ambrogini. They were married on April 25, 1970. They had four children.

Frank served the people of Montana as an InFaith missionary for 53 years. His ministries included Vacation Bible Schools, Bible camps, and nursing home programs. He also led many kids' classes, small churches and Bible studies in rural Montana. He volunteered at the Great Falls Rescue Mission and AWANA kids clubs around Great Falls.

Frank is survived by his wife, Jewel of Great Falls, MT; children Janelle (Sam) Walsh of Clovis, NM, Melodie (Chris) Horton of Murfreesboro, TN, Crystal King of Norton, MA, and Nathaniel (Sarah) King of Helena, MT; and seven grandchildren. He is also survived by three brothers, Noel (Tommie) King, Alvin (Caroline) King, and Larry (Karen) King; and one sister, Alice Didamo.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother Harry King.

Frank's interests included ministry, photography and making music among many others. He always placed his relationship to God first and dearly loved his family. He was a prayer warrior for many.

The family would like to thank Peace Hospice, Sletten Cancer Center and the many loving people who have walked this journey with us including those at Emmanuel Bible Church.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to InFaith, 145 John Robert Thomas Drive, Exton, PA  19341.

I have many fond memories of Mr. King and his Vacation Bible School classes in tiny Jefferson City MT. I loved his songs the most. He was always so excited to play his accordion and sing with the kids. He was a precious man. Sorry for your loss.

My husband Doug had played the accordion when he was in school and it was special when Frank played at our home, It always amazed me that he drove down from Great Falls to do VBS and other children's classes in Jefferson City. I remember he sometimes brought his children to help with the classes. All 3 of my children attended and he gave my youngest son his first Bible. He was a wonderful man of God and he loved children.

Jewel and Family. Wow, God really used your family in our life when you lived in Nebraska. We so appreciated the accordion music, balloon creations, helping with VBS, learning to sing in parts as we shared in ministry with you. Frank showed us how God can work in many different ways and what a joy it is to be a servant.
