Robert A. Knight

November 26, 1918 - September 24, 2016

Dad went to heaven to join his parents, brothers and sisters on September 24, 2016. He was the last of 10 siblings.
He was born in Wetumka, Oklahoma to Bryant Lafayette and Mary Lou West Knight on November 26, 1918.  He worked at Boise Cascade for 36 years.

Dad lived in Salemtowne for many years with his wife Mary who preceded him in death in 2001.  The last 13 years he and Joyce Schofield have enjoyed life with their many friends, club activities and especially golfing at Salemtowne.  Dad had 9 hole in ones in his 40 years of golfing and only quit when he was 95.  He also played fast pitch softball for 16 years after being forced to quit semi-pro baseball due to a shoulder injury. He loved to fish and hunt and taught his son and grandsons everything about hunting and fishing and they loved him dearly. 

Dad is survived by his children, Dennis of Salem, Bobby, Richard & Kermit of Seattle, Mary Gale of Bend, and Patricia Langley of Keizer, OR. He had 4 grandsons, 3 granddaughters and several great-grandkids.
