With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Shane Garrett King, a beloved husband, father, son, and a beacon of faith to many. Born on October 21, 1991, in Amarillo, Texas, Shane was a cherished member of the community, touching countless lives with his kindness, generosity, and unwavering faith. He passed away on November 11, 2023, leaving a legacy of love, laughter, and devotion.
Shane was a man of strong faith, an avid Christian who lived his life as a testament to his beliefs. He was a valued member of the First Baptist Church of Canyon, Texas. His love for Jesus was the cornerstone of his life, and he shared this passion with everyone he met. Shane’s infectious laughter and jovial spirit brightened every room he entered. He found his life’s greatest joy in his family, especially his children, whom he adored. His marriage to his wife, Kayla King, on December 31, 2013, was a beautiful testament to their shared love and devotion. The verse, “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love” (1 Corinthians 13:13), perfectly encapsulates Shane’s life.
Shane’s dedication was not only evident in his faith and family life, but also in his career. An integral part of Pantex, Shane worked diligently as a Product Analyst/Tester/Packager. His commitment to excellence in his work was admired by all who knew him. A proud graduate of Amarillo High School, Shane’s roots in Amarillo and Groom shaped the incredible man he became. His life was a testament to the power of faith, the strength of family, and the joy of laughter.
Shane is survived by his loving wife, Kayla King, his three children, Kohen, Razie, Swaizlee; his father, Brandon King, and his mother, Kathryn Koeing; twin sister, Lana, and his brother Chase. He is remembered as a man of unwavering faith, a devoted family man, and a cherished friend. His earthly journey may have ended, but his spirit lives on in the hearts of those he touched.
We invite all who knew and loved Shane to share their memories and upload photos to his memorial page. In doing so, we continue to celebrate his life and the indelible mark he left on all our lives.
A Memorial Service will be held at 5:00 p.m., Tuesday, November 14, 2023, at First Baptist Church, 1717 4th Ave., Canyon, Texas.
