Harve D. King was the youngest of eight children born in Farmersville, Texas on April 13, 1920, to Paul Lee and Minnie Samuels King. Both parents preceded him in death.

On December 31, 1941, he married the love of his life, Elinor Woods King and they were blessed with one son, the late Michael King. Harve and Elinor celebrated their 68th anniversary this past New Year’s Eve. He attended school in Farmersville and Denton Public Schools, Texas College, Prairie View, University of Texas and Columbia University in New York.

Harve was an educator in the Austin Independent School District from 1955 to 1967 where he served as teacher, counselor, and administrator. For eight of those years he served as Assistant Principal at Kealing Junior High where he was known as “Bat Man” by the students. He was a counselor at Gary Job Corps in San Marcos, Texas, and served as Associate Dean of Students at the University of North Texas, where he retired in 1986 after 17 years. His charter in life was to help others be successful, as evidenced by his many roles of education.

He was a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, an avid golfer, and was affiliated with Pro-Duffers in Dallas, Texas where he won many trophies. During World War II, he served in the army in the south Pacific and enjoyed furloughs in Australia.

Following a long time illness, Harve answered the voice of the Lord and was called home to rest on Tuesday, January 26, 2010.

He is survived by his loving wife Elinor King; one sister, Laura Rogers of Marina, California; one brother, Herbert King of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; grandson, Jarrett T. King of Austin, Texas; daughter-in-law Brenda King of Austin, Texas. He also leaves four nieces, four nephews, cousins, and a host of friends.
