Justin Alan and Hayden Alan King left this world too soon, but together, on June 13th, 2017. Justin and Hayden are hanging out with Justin's beloved mom and Hayden's Framma Wynn right now. These two characters touched so many lives in their 39 and 13 years. This duo embraced life fearlessly, with humor and grace. They lifted up their neighbors, spoke life to friends and strangers alike, and were able to find (and were often the source of) joy, love, and fun everyday. Whether on the field or from the announcer's booth, the two Kings spurred the Capitan Tigers on to greatness. Husband and son loved their family unconditionally. They saw the value in others and they challenged us to find the courage to reach our goals. Pizza and Twix bar runs; baseball, football, basketball; backhoe tutorials; toenail painting by Karsten and boogeyman protection happened with a wink and a smile. They took pride in our country and were a positive force in the community and school. They liked the Broncos, but nobody is perfect. Devoted father, son and brother, Justin and Hayden made family a priority.
They are survived by wife and mother Kim, son and brother Aston, daughter and sister Karsten, Grandpas Jack and Chuck, Grandma Homie G, Grandma Lou, Uncle and brother Jady and his wife, Melissa, their children, Jasper and Alexandra, and countless Aunties, Uncles, Cousins, family and friends... all of us really.

I met Justin during the Ruidoso flooding and continued to work with him in my position in NM Homeland Security and FEMA. He help many communities and the people in them... He will be missed by many....
