Ernest “Freddy” Edward King, 63 of New Gretna, NJ passed away peacefully at home on January 5, 2022. Ernest was born and lived in Chatsworth, NJ where his first job was picking blueberries at a very young age. He lived in West Creek and Tuckerton before moving to New Gretna over 30 years ago. Ernest worked as an Operations Engineer for ISS Services (Local 68) at the FAA, and formerly employed at ACUA, Bacharach Institute, Health Center at Galloway, Long Beach Island Township School District, and Atlantic County Vocational. Freddy had a big heart! He was all about smiles, laughter and fun. His all-time favorite was throwing holiday and social (FredStock) parties for his nieces, nephews, family and friends. He loved buying and collecting cars and trucks as well as repairing, remodeling, and restoring them. We will miss getting your birthday and Christmas cards left on our windshields and your famous wave good-bye!
He is survived by his loving mother Janice (King) Sesta (John) of Little Egg Harbor, siblings Debbie Smith (Alfred “Buddy”), Sandra Bourguignon (Henry), Bonnie Adams (Rick), Laurie Genzano, Charles King, Penny Ryan (Rob), Dawn Henry (John), Emma Graff, many nieces, nephews, cousins, great-nieces and great-nephews, and Cathleen, Brian and Jim. Ernest was predeceased by his father Fred King and brother Raymond.
