By Fr. David G. King, S.J.
Fr. David King, a Jesuit for 66 of his 84 years, died on St. Ignatius Day, July 31, 2002 in Spokane of a cardiac
arrest. He grew up in Portland and Seattle, and taught at Marquette High School in Yakima, Seattle Prep,
Bellarmine Prep in Tacoma and Jesuit High School in Portland for 25 years. Fr. King was a devout and observant
religious, who loved community life
and reminiscing about colorful characters, Jesuit and others, of former
days. A traditional and gentlemanly man, Fr. King would touch his hat and nod a pleasant greeting while walking
to the bus stop on his way to celebrate Mass at a local parish. He never drove a car, but used public transportation
