Age: 78
Residence: Rockaway Beach, MO
Formerly of: Fayette, PA

Robert Leroy “Bob” Knight, age 78, of Rockaway Beach, Missouri, passed away December 31, 2017. He entered this world May 3, 1939, in Fayette, Pennsylvania, the son of Paul and Ada (Johnston) Knight. September 15, 2000, he married his best friend, Judy Elliott, who stood by his side ever since. His parents and a grandchild, Timmy Huffman, have preceded him in death. Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks.

Bob enjoyed fishing, boating, and RVing. He was an excellent baker, mechanic, and was just good with his hands. In his younger years he got into kickboxing.  Bob was a hard worker and was known for doing anything for anyone. The Pittsburg Steelers were “his” team. Many will miss this tender-hearted man who shared his love for a lot of years.

Bob is survived by his wife and best friend, Judy (Elliot) Knight of the home; two daughters: Christine (Bill) Lewis of Pennsylvania and Robin Knight of Chicago, Illinois; two sons: Robbie Knight of Pennsylvania and Bradley Knight of Rockaway Beach, Missouri; stepdaughter, Jennifer Grant of Illinois; six grandchildren: Tiffany, Ryan, Adrian, Alexis, Alyiah, and Cooper; two great-grandchildren: Ethan, and Cory; and a sister, Martha Jean Basinger of Pennsylvania.

A family memorial service will be held later in Pennsylvania. To leave an online condolence, please visit www.cremationsoftheozarks.com
