    I am proud to call him a friend. I am reminded of him every time I see a backgammon game and remember our games with a bottle of wine. You taught me too well old friend! Also talking music and history was always enjoyable and educating. A true friend and one of the best human beings I have ever met. Rest in peace old friend. You have left an incredible legacy.

    May all of your memories help you find peace in this difficult time. Bob was a great cousin but living in Canada I only had a few opportunities to see him over the years. I remember all of the hard work he put into making the Legal family tree which I treasure the copy he sent me. Deep sympathy to the entire family.

    Love Lori ( Legal) Rob and Nick Cochrane.xo

    Heather, I was very sorry to hear of your loss. I still remember Bob joining in on my Derby party and taking great care to help judge the hat contest. I know he will be missed!

    My deepest condolences to Bobby’s entire family. I am Bob’s cousin and because we lived so far away, only met him on a couple of occasions. I have begun to know him vicariously a little through some of the comments made on Facebook by family and friends. He certainly sounds like he was a tremendous Father, son, Grandpa and friend to all. Regardless of how well we knew each other, there is a deep feeling of loss when a family member passes. Rest in peace, my dear cousin. Special prayers for my sweet Auntie Pat. xox

  13. Liz & Bob Jones

    Bob Knight was a loved and respected member of the J & J Furniture family for several years. We are blessed with many special “Bob Knight” memories that will continue to be cherished. Bob came by the Springhill store earlier this month and visited . I only wish more of his fellow co-workers could have been here that day. Our love and prayers go out to Heather and the entire family. We know he will be greatly missed.

  14. Michael Sayre

    The stars fell on Alabama that night.

  15. Mark & Jill Larabie

    To the Knight Family
    Thanks Bobby for all the help in 1975 to put a throw out bearing in my half ton truck. A two hour job that took us all day and part of the evening. Skinned knuckles, a bit of cussing and a pail of grease but we finished the job and I laughed about it for days. A great cousin and friend. Rest in peace Bob.
