    ‘Congo’ Kingy. Our dear mate Rob King. You will be sorely missed by all who knew you. Always ready to help, always up for a cuppa and a chat, always a story to share. I hope Vince was waiting at the Pearly Gates and took you straight to a Zappa concert. I am unable to be at your funeral old mate, but I will come and sit with you for a cuppa and a story when I am back in town. Peacefully rest dear Kingy..

    Kingy was one of the original ‘Congo Crew’ .. definitely a legend in our village. A kind man who loved to chat when checking out the surf each day! 🏄‍♂️

    Rob was my mate since the age of 9. We were always mates, a typical North Caringbah bond, although we drifted in different circles. It was always energising to see him, as he was a happy soul who truly loved people. His loss at a relatively young age is keenly felt. Thanks for being a great mate, Rob.

    It was a shit day when Wazza messaged me about Robs condition and that time was nearly up…

    I dont think I ever saw Rob without a smile on his face… Even though I didnt party with him as much as many others, but I knew he was a top bloke.

    Just remembering that smile makes me smile..
    RIP Rob…

    Thoughts with Cheryl – just remember the great times mate and he’ll be sittin with Len having a beer or 2…

    When you look back at your life and the friends you have made, good friends, MATES, there are really only a handful of MATES that made the cut, that were staunch and were as close as anyone has come. Kingy was one of those for me. His infectious smile, stories and friendship cannot be replaced.

    There is an old saying “You make a living from what you get, but you make a life from what you give”. Kingy gave so much to so many, without anything expected in return. In modern language it’s called “paying it forward”, in the old it is just being a good mate.

    Rest in Peace Kingy, watch out for the wrongun’s.

  • Russell Fletcher

    A true blue Aussie. A wonderfully friendly man. I especially recall the many great waves we shared when we were much younger. Very sad to see you go Kingy.

  • Ian Edwards

    While Kingy had many friends, he treated his fellow bus drivers and staff at Marshalls as if they were family.

    He was the most loyal employee, always willing to work at any time to get the job done.

    Kingy was known for his exceptional panel beating skills. He was always happy to go the extra mile to repair any damages to the buses and many drivers were eternally grateful for his repair work following their dings.

    Kingy was respected and loved by his work colleagues. His contributions to the company were great, and his absence will be felt by all who knew him.

    Kingy’s chats and dry sense of humor brightened up everyone’s day.

    Although Kingy is no longer with us, his memory will live on through the lives he touched. He will be remembered for his kindness, generosity, and willingness to help .

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.

    Rest in peace Kingy – you will be missed by us all at Marshall’s.

  • Jacob

    So long Kingy! You were such a humble happy bloke, you made mundane tasks like bringing the bins in or checking the mail so much more memorable. I already miss the banter and your storytelling, Congo isn’t the same without you. RIP old mate.

  • Julie & Wayne Marshall

    Kingy, You will be missed by so many people who considered you their friend. I already miss your laugh and smiling face. Deepest condolences to your mum, Cheryl and family. At least we know you’ll be up there having a beer with your dad. RIP my friend xxx
