Sally A. King (nee Futty), Kapa’a, died peacefully on June 10, 2021, two days after turning 75. She is now free after a challenging life with Parkinson’s disease. She never complained about the life she had to endure during all those many years and lived life to the fullest. Sally had a busy career after graduating from the University of Delaware. She had many professional interests from teaching to owning her own businesses and being certified as a commercial airline pilot. In fact, Joe Biden was one of her passengers in a private flight during his early years of politics. Sally moved to Kauai in 1992 from West Chester, PA. Sally’s favorite pass time was rescuing cats and dogs. She was a forever friend with carrots to any horse in a nearby field. She always had pockets of treats for the neighborhood pets she would encounter during her walks. Sally loved putting smiles on the faces of people with special gifts for children and parties for friends. Some thoughts from friends: “She was the nicest person I ever met”, “She was so intuitive to call me when I needed a friend to talk to”. Sally made such a motherly impression many years ago to an eight year old over a two year period, that he passed on those qualities to his four sons and found Sally to thank her 40 years later. Sally’s favorite foods were the lobster curry bisque from Hukilau Lani, and a cherry pie from Kilauea Bakery. Sally was blessed with many caregivers who were truly her angels without wings. She always appreciated the time, care and love that she received from her many friends and caregivers. We are very grateful to have had her in our lives. A donation in her memory may be sent to the Kauai Humane Society. Celebration of life will be on Sunday, July 18th, late afternoon. Inquiries, call Carol, 808-822-7195
