Larry Lee King was born on November 26, 1940 on the family farm at Amenia, ND to Frank and Helen (Webber) King. He married the love of his life, Kathy Nelson on September 3, 1957. Larry was a hard worker and life long farmer.

He retired in 2006, but continued to help on the farm until 2016 when he moved into West Fargo.
