James King

May 19, 1958 ~ February 11, 2022 (age 63) 63 Years Old


James “Jimmy” King, 63, of Norwalk, IA passed away with close friends and family present on February 11, 2022.

Jimmy was born May 19, 1958 in Des Moines, Iowa to Floyd “Jim” and Marilynn King. Jimmy was co-owner of King Delivery Service, a local family-owned business that has served the Des Moines Metro area for 100 years.

Jimmy was a gear-head and enjoyed working on cars, meticulously mowing the lawn, NASCAR, and going for long drives listening to ‘tunes. He will be remembered for his unique sense of humor and his infamous one-liners. In his free time, you could likely find him taking it easy, tinkering in the garage with a cold beer in hand.  

Jimmy is survived by his three daughters, Stefanie, Marissa and Meredith and their significant others; his brother Jerry (Terri) King; and his significant other, Jennie Woods.

He was preceded in death by his parents and Wife, Leanne King.

The family will hold a Celebration of Life and greet friends from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, February 17th, 2022 at O’Leary Funeral and Celebration of Life Center, 1020 Main St, Norwalk, IA 50211. In Lieu of true Jimmy fashion, please wear your favorite flannel.

The family would like to express their heartfelt appreciation for the loving support of others.
