He was a dedicated employee of Barnhill Contracting Company for 47 years until he became unable to work in the fall of 2018.
Bobby enjoyed racing, fishing, and spending time with his family. He will be greatly missed by his family and countless friends.
Robert "Bobby" Lee King, Jr. was preceded in death by his parents.
He is survived by his daughter, Melissa Lee King Barfield and her husband Kenneth, but as Bobby would tell anyone Kenneth was his son not his son-in-law; and his beautiful granddaughter, the apple of his eye, Lucy Makayla Barfield all of Rocky Mount, sister, Ann King Proctor and husband Albert of Tarboro, brother, William "Bill" Henry King and wife Cindy of Mocksville, former wife and lifelong friend, Trudy Lee Trevathan, and caring neighbor, Jackie Knight.
