Daniel T. King (Danny), 82 of Port Orange, Florida, went home to be with Jesus his savior surrounded by his family on September 24, 2019.

Danny was born on September 19, 1937 in Burlington, VT to Daniel Philip and Edith Mitiguy King.  He graduated from Cathedral High School where he soon married the love of his life Gloria Beauchemin.  He was a member of the Vermont Air National Guard Green Mountain Boys where he proudly served full time for many years as a Crew Chief for a variety of jet aircraft. Danny was always very proud of his Air Guard service where he made many lasting friendships.

After moving the family to South Burlington, Danny soon joined the South Burlington Jaycees where he eventually became President of the South Burlington chapter where he made many of his life-long friends and acquaintances. As an avid sports fan, Danny joined the South Burlington Rebel Booster Club where he also became President, further signifying his dedication and leadership to community service and helping of others. Danny became a member of the South Burlington Zoning board through one of his best friends, Fred Blais. Danny served for many years and was an integral part of the City of South Burlington’s business and residential growth strategy.  In addition to the many things on Danny’s plate at any one time, he was involved in sports with his sons and coached their little league teams.  Danny enjoyed hunting and fishing and spent many hours on the lake with his father in law Ted Beauchemin.  Danny and Gloria vacationed for many years to Rye, NH and Myrtle Beach, SC (where they spent many winters during their early retirement years). 

Danny had a very successful career with Essex Beef Company where he was affectionally known as “dumb beef guy” (long story haha). Danny settled for a career with New York Life Insurance Company where he was one of their most successful agents for the VT office. Danny retired from New York Life with over 28 years of providing family financial planning services. 

In 2011, he and Gloria moved to Port Orange, FL to be close with their best friends Peg and Dick Picard in retirement. He continued his journey in the Catholic faith being a member of the Epiphany Catholic Church in Port Orange where he was a Eucharistic Minister and Minister to the sick.  He provided endless dedication not only to his faith but also to his commitment to the Church and his family and friends. He was an extremely caring and passionate individual throughout his life span. No one went unnoticed when in need.  He is a true testament of God’s work by giving and going above and beyond for those who needed his support. During his passing, Danny was greeted and mourned by many amazing people that surrounded his life from his church, close family and countless friends. 

Daniel T. King is survived by his wife, Gloria Beauchemin King (Port Orange, FL) of 60 years of marriage, sons Daniel Phillip King II and his wife Diane Story King (Palm Coast, FL) and Scott Michael King (Port Orange, FL). His siblings Margaret (Peggy) King, Paul and Suzen King, Kathy King and many nieces and nephews, grandchildren Ryan P. King (Active Duty Army, currently stationed in Europe), Jeffrey S. King (South Burlington, VT), Jennifer B. Hyde (Rochester, NY), Jessica L. Romano (Waterville, VT), Jordan W. King (Knightdale, NC), great grandchildren James C. King (Virginia Beach, VA), Ivy C. King and Brantley P. King (Carterville GA) and Landon C. Romano (Waterville VT), In-laws Joanne and (Edward) Lavalley, Susan and  Ralph Underwood, Claire Beauchemin and many nieces and nephews.  Danny is predeceased by his sister Patricia (Patty) and her husband Paul and brother in-law Robert Beauchemin.

Services will be held at Epiphany Catholic Church, 201 Lafayette Street, Port Orange, FL 32127 at 11:00AM on Saturday October 19, 2019 officiated by Father John Bosco Maison whom Danny had a special relationship with.  A reception will be held immediately after the service at the Church.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent for “Education in Ghana” to Epiphany Church, 201 Lafayette St, Port Orange, FL 32127 or to Halifax Health Hospice, 3800 Woodbriar Trail, Port Orange, FL 32129 (care of fund development).

    Dear Gloria. you know how much Danny meant to Allison and I. I have no doubt he was an angel sent to us by our Heavenly Father to do the Creators work as he brought both of us back into the faith. I know my Mom is going to search him out in the Heavenly Kingdom and thank him for completing a task she started a number of years ago! We are deeply saddened by the loss of such a wonderful man and even though we mourn we also rejoice as he can now reap the reward for all the good he did in his life time. Rest assured you and your family are in our daily prayers. AE and I are surely going to miss DK, my Air Force Brother.

    Danny King has been a life-long ,close family friend. I barely remember a camp Mills Point but I do remember drives to kindergarten , then parties , years later, on Prouty Pkwy !! And mixed in between are memories in our basement, the Picard’s on New Years, the Sandbar, Jameson’s house and so many more great places!
    When I was younger, Danny used to pick on me, but it was all in fun and laughter. As I grew older, we saw each other less, but every meeting was still special to me.

    Gloria, Danny and Scott: please know that I’m thinking of you. Hopefully a few of the memories were able to put a smile on your face. Love, Lisa
