    Victor H. King, 93, of North Loup, Neb., died on January 8, 2008, at Valley County Health System Hospital.
    He was born on September 17, 1914, on the family farm at Horace, Neb., the son of William and Edna (Clapp) King. On February 20, 1936, he married the former Ada E. Stillman in North Loup. She died on April 24, 2000.
    When Victor was in the 2nd grade, his family moved to Cheyenne Wells, Colo. Five years later, the family moved to Scotia, Neb. Victor graduated from Scotia High School.
    Victor and Ada made their first home on a farm west of North Loup. Three years later, they moved into town, where they spent the rest of their married lives.
    Victor farmed until 1941, when locusts destroyed the farm. He then worked 20 years at the North Loup Cheese Factory, starting as a cheese maker and eventually becoming the manager. Following that job, he worked at the North Loup Lumber Yard, retiring after 20 years.
    Victor was an area carpenter who enjoyed reading, music, traveling, playing cards, and his family. He was a member of the North Loup Seventh Day Baptist Church.
    Survivors include two daughters, Darlene Psota of North Loup and Sharolyn Langridge of Estes Park, Colo.; one son, Harold, of Battle Creek, Mich.; four grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. In addition to his wife, Ada, he was preceded in death by an infant daughter, Karen; one brother, Elery; two sisters, Dorothy and Audrey Mae King; and one foster sister, Pearl Kennedy.
    Funeral services were held at the North Loup SDB Church on January 11, 2008, with Rev. Christian Mattison officiating. Burial was in Mount Hope Cemetery, Scotia.
