To send flowers in memory of Robert "Bob" Arlon Knight, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Bob was born Saturday, May 10, 1941, in Quenemo, Kansas. He was the son of the late Milan Knight and the late Letha (Rose) Knight.
Bob was a loving son, brother, husband, father, and grandfather. He served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War. Bob’s creativity was immense to include numerous woodworking projects, writing poetry and songs. He could finish a crossword puzzle in record time, complete a 1000 piece jigsaw in less than a couple days time and challenged himself with Sudoku puzzles daily. Bob was also an animal lover; no stray dog or cat, wild deer, bird or squirrel ever came around that didn’t get fed like royalty.
Bob is survived by his wife of 49 years, Linda Knight; 2 children, Kelly Knight and Bart Knight; 3 grandchildren, Kade Knight, Roane Knight, and Milan Knight. He was also survived by a brother, Ronnie (Connie) Knight; 4 Sisters, Joyce (late Willis) Long, Kaye (Bob) Counts, Cheryl (Michael) Weiss, and Debra (Larry) Harris; and many nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family.
In addition to his parents, Bob was preceded in death by a brother, Harvey (Shirley) Knight; and sister, Anna Rose (late Roy) Baber.
Bob chose cremation, the family followed his wishes, and a Celebration of his Life will be held at a later date.
