Jonathon “Jon” Lindsey King, of Hampstead, died unexpectedly on Thursday, July 16, 2015, at his home. He was 49.

Jon was born on Dec. 17, 1965, in Saint Albans, Vermont to Berta (Balentine) King and Bruce Edward King.

Jon is survived by his fiancè, Lisa and her daughters, Katelyn and Jacey; mother, Berta; brother, Bruce Jr.; sister, Sara and her fiancè, Tim; brother, Mike; brother, Andy and his wife, Miranda; and nieces and nephews, Ryan, Andrew, Steven, Nicholas, Kristina, Isaac, Josie, Stefan, Emily and Jacob.

Jon was preceded in death by his beloved father in October of 2010 and his dog, Spooner, a longtime friend and companion, in July of 2013.

Jon will be dearly remembered and immeasurably missed by many for his love of life and all things fun. His smile filled the room when he walked in and whomever he was in contact with was left with the indelible mark of his personality, clearly seen.

Jon brought energy, life, comedy, enjoyment, competition and love to everything he was involved with, from his passion for his business to his deep appreciation for wildlife, hunting and fishing.

“Uncle Jon” was always the favorite at family gatherings. He loved family more than anything and constantly worked to find new ways to be together with his loved ones. Jon’s most recent years were made fullest through his devoted love for Lisa and her girls. Immense personal pride in his little family shined brightly for all to see. Jon regarded these relationships as the greatest accomplishment of his life.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Monday, July 20, 2015, at Andrews Mortuary, Hampstead Chapel.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Hampstead Kiwanis Park in Jon’s memory.
