Wayne King, the owner of Tiny's Submarine Sandwiches in Canyon Country, died Sunday after fighting a longtime battle with his illnesses. King was 72.

"He was a loving, caring, generous man who helped everybody," said daughter Teri King.

King was a longtime Canyon Country resident. He had been diagnosed with peripheral artery disease, Teri King said. He died at a Woodland Hills hospital of a bacterial infection that caused multiple organ failures, she said.

The Kings have owned and operated Tiny's Submarine Sandwiches for 33 years, Teri King said.

"We've been here a long time," she said. "He supported all the schools with donations."

Jesse Henderson, of Newhall, was a close friend of Wayne King's and a customer of the sandwich shop. Henderson golfed and fished often with King.

"I met him at a restaurant when I first came out here around 1990," Henderson said. "He was just a great human being. He had a lot of friends. He was very friendly with everyone."

Henderson said King was also a truthful man.

"If he didn't like something, he'd tell you; and if he liked it, he'd tell you," Henderson said.

Teri King said she and her family will continue to operate the submarine shop in Canyon Country.

King is survived by his wife, Susan King, son Tim Johnson and daughters Teri King and Tammie Johnson.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
