In the early morning hours on March 13, 2023, the Lord transitioned Sebastian Rafael King from his earthly home. Rafael as he is known to many was born to the late Ida Belle King, and the late Mark Dilworth on May 10, 1962.
He accepted Christ at an early age and became a member of Macedonia MB Church. Rafael graduated from Corinth High School in 1981, were he was an active member of the Corinth High School Warriors Basketball Team. He attended Northeast Community College from 1981-1983, in which he was a part of a group of men who accelerated for Northeast Basketball. He worked for ITT communications for some time before heading off to the USA Navy. If you truly knew Rafael, he was called Paw Paw, Pops, Unk, Stretch, KingFish, Rudy Rudy, and OG. To say he was funny was an understatement. Hello world he would say.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Ida Belle King; his dad, Mark Dilworth; a daughter, Jessica Miller, a brother, Leray King; sister, Latrice Williams; uncle, Jimmy Edmond.
He leaves to cherish his loving memories one son, Dondre Green; three daughters, Angelia Knight, Tynisha King, and Tierra James; a companion, Sophia Combs; a special family to him, Raven, Kaniah, Bentlee, Khole, Eli and Raylee; four brothers, Michael King, Sr. of Corinth, MS, Michael (Tamoria) Dilworth of Jackson, MS; Denny (Angela) Scales of Corinth, MS; Cory (Danielle) Walker of Paducah, KY; three sisters, Terri Cummings, Janet (Michael) Sherer of Corinth, MS, and Latanya (Garrick) Cayson of Guntown, MS; 10 grandchildren; his aunts, Patricia Carpenter, and Joyce Williams; one uncle, Steve (Lisa) Edmond; and a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives.
