Warren Wilson King was born on October 15, 1936, to Walter Woodrow (Woody) and Vida (Wilson) King in Marshalltown, IA. He was raised in Ferguson, IA, Lone Tree, IA, Cheyenne, WY, and San Francisco, CA. In 1947, the King family moved to Conrad and Warren graduated from Conrad High School in 1955. He then attended the American Technical School in Des Moines, IA, in 1956 and 1957. Warren was united in marriage to the love of his life, Dorothy (Sharp) King, on February 14, 1958, at the Little Brown Church in Nashua, IA. Upon graduating from tech school, Warren opened D & W Radio & TV, along with partner Dick Frederick. Over the years, the business evolved into D & W TV & Appliance, as wife Dorothy later took on the role as bookkeeper for the business. Warren served the Conrad area for 30 years with sales and service of RCA TV's and Whirlpool Appliances. He also served his community in numerous roles over the years being a main street businessman. In 1987, Warren joined the staff at the Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown in the maintenance division until his retirement in January of 1999. Over the years, Warren and Dorothy traveled the world in the company of numerous friends and family, but always considered Conrad the best place to be. Being an avid fisherman and hunter, many of the couple's travels took them to Moose Lake, again in the company of loved ones and dear friends. Warren was loved for his sense of humor and many practical jokes that family and many friends will long remember. Warren and Dorothy were avid BCLUW Comet fans while their children and grandchildren attended school and in the years to follow. He also loved spending time with his eight grandchildren and always considered himself very blessed to have experienced the births of five great grandchildren in his lifetime.

Warren is survived by a daughter, Janell (Rex) Day of Marshalltown; a son, Jeff (Mary) of Conrad; a sister, Pat (Rick) Smith; his eight grandchildren: Beau and Anna Marie Squires, Lauren (Les) Marts, Ben (Kortney) King, Carter and Lincoln King; great grandchildren: Harper Lee and Cassius Squires, Adalee and Huxley Marts, and Kyler King. Also left to cherish his memory are Dale and Sara Sharp, Dean and LaDonna Sharp, Craig and Debbie Hupfeld, along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and dear family friends.

I'm so very sorry to hear of the death of your father, Janelle & Jeff. I have wonderful memories of your dad working on our tv's. He was just a fun man to have around. And I learned something new - I though the D & W TV stood for Dorothy & Warren. You dad lived a great life. I'll be praying for you during these difficult holidays. God be with you.
