Henry King, one rare journalist

Henry King, March 10, 1919-October 31, 2010 This week came news in my hometown newspaper that Henry King had died at age 91. Henry King was a cotton mill worker in a mill town called Franklinville, who began submitting articles to the newspaper and it began to print them. He eventually left the mill, but not the mill town for writing. He didn't get his first full-time job as a newspaper writer until he was 40.
I worked with him in the small newsroom of the Courier-Tribune in Asheboro, N.C. in the late 70s and early 80s. Chip Womick of the Courier-Tribune, who knew King for many years, does a good job of taking his measure.
...
"It made The Courier-Tribune a special paper having Henry in it. You always knew that Henry was going to have something interesting and entertaining to read. He just had to be poking in the back roads. He was always going down little trails and finding interesting people.
"There are just so few people like Henry, with his curiosity and his ability to write and his love of people.
...
King could find a story in anything or any person. King never once said "there's nothing there" or "there's no story."
A woman said if an acorn fell from a tree, he could write a column about it. He proved her right. A man said he could spin a tale from a horse's footprint and he proved him right, too.
He got a column out of our wedding, tying in the LoveLady Fire Department for extra measure.
I think he "discovered" Rufus Hussey, the "Bean Shooter Man." If he didn't, he certainly had already interviewed long before Johnny Carson had him his show or Charles Kuralt visited. In a long running series in the newspaper on places, usually a rural crossroads or maybe just a wide spot in the road, he would always found someone who said some version of: "I've always lived here and wouldn't live anywhere else."
A man of many interests, who read widely, and had a genuine interest in people, he could interview politicians, celebrities, and the rich and powerful, but what he enjoyed was pulling the stories out of people who had never been in the newspaper and never would be again until their obituary notice.
In "retirement," he wrote at least seven books and created two nature libraries.

I knew Henry King "from a distance". As a member of the Franklinville Baptist Church, I used to see his house and think of him every week. Of course, his columns always appealed to my love of the outdoors and items of interest in Randolph County and all over the state.
I talked to Henry on occasion.
...
Henry was one of a kind. We all knew it. His books will always hold a special place in my home, and he, in my heart.

According to the State Highway Patrol, Harry King, 70, the pilot of the plane, was its only occupant.
The patrol described his injuries as "moderate."
He was taken to Wadsworth Rittman Hospital by Seville-Guilford EMS.
The crash occurred about 1:15 p.m. when King was trying to land on Runway 21.
The plane traveled off the runway, and King lost control, according to the patrol.
The plane's left wing struck the ground in a nearby cornfield, causing the front end to strike the ground and spin around.
Safety restraints were used by King, and the patrol does not suspect alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash, which remains under investigation.
