Crystal D. LaPoint-King
May 31, 1968 — Oct. 3, 2015
Crystal Dawn LaPoint-King, 47, received the promise of eternal life on Saturday, October 3, 2015. She was born in Racine on May 31, 1968, the daughter of Timothy and Sandra (nee Peterson) LaPoint.
Crystal was united in marriage to the love of her life, Lt. Col. (retired) David Wayne King, on September 1, 2007, in Las Vegas. Crystal and David were truly in love with each other and always took care of one another’s needs; it was a true love story.
Crystal graduated from Park High School in Racine in 1986. She was a very brilliant, energetic, generous and compassionate woman. She was the president/CEO of the Elite Human Capital Group in Brookfield. Her staff looked up to her as an “office mom.” Crystal’s business was ranked among the top 25 woman-owned businesses in the state of Wisconsin.
Crystal also had a soft-spot in her heart for animals and truly was a crusader for animals in need. She and David have rescued many canine companions over the years. Crystal supported many animal shelters, especially Bichon & Little Buddies Animal Rescue.
Crystal’s spent her life helping others. She truly exemplifies someone who walks the walk when it came to helping others. Even in her death, Crystal continues to touch lives by being a bone and tissue donor. The quality of life for up to 100 lives can be improved with the gift Crystal has given.
Crystal leaves to cherish her memory her beloved husband, David King of Waukesha; sons, Devin King and Alexander King; parents, Tim and Sandy LaPoint of Racine; in-laws, Jim and Mary King of Omaha, Neb.; sister, Michelle LaPoint-Haws of Racine; Godson and nephew, Cody Alan Haws of Racine; sisters-in-law, Laura (Mike) Lagana of Atlanta and Mary “Beth” (Russell) Miller of Omaha; brother-in-law, James (Anni) King of Omaha; four-legged companions, Wally, Stanley, Dora, Bella, Carol and Fezzywinkle; Crystal’s extended family at Elite Human Capital Group; and other relatives and dear friends too numerous to mention.
Crystal was preceded in death by her grandparents, Frank and Wilma Peterson, and Albert and Maggie LaPoint.
