Knight- It is with heavy and broken hearts that we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and friend, Allan Russell Knight, aged 76 years of Corunna, passed away on Sunday October 4, 2020. Beloved husband of 56 years and companion for 60 to Sylvia (Wagner). Much loved father of Michele, Kevin (Brenda) and Lisa (Mitch). Treasured grandfather of Jordan, Mathew, Noah, Allie, Duane, Aaron, Brianne, Amber, Ron and Chelsey and great-grandfather of Layla, Charlotte, Elliott, Kaiden, Owen and Gina. Allan is also survived by; his brother, Brad Knight (Kathy); his aunt, Mary Belle King (Norm); sisters-in-law, Barb McNeil (Bill), Joanne Wagner, Betty Wagner (the late Glenn), Pat Dawson (the late Gerald) and Lynne Howes (the late Ross). Numerous nieces, nephews and cousins also survive. He was predeceased by; his parents, Clayton (1982) and Lylia “Lila” (2005); his brother-in-law, Lyle Wagner and sister-in-law, Anne Wagner. Allan will be forever remembered as a dedicated and committed community member wherever he lived as he has been active in Lion’s for 50 years, was a faithful member of the United Church-currently in Corunna and previously Camlachie, Fort Saskatchewan and Petrolia. He was a past board member of C.E.E Hospital Foundation, coached his daughter’s hockey teams in Petrolia, he was a curler and member of the Sarnia Golf and Curling Club and is a DOW retiree. Allan and Sylvia were also a very big part in the creation and success of Knight Funeral Home, from the financial backing they gave to the sense of enjoyment they felt interacting with the people of the community. They were so very proud when the business reached its 25 year milestone. Special thanks is to be extended to; granddaughter-in-law, Laura for being in the right place at the right time when both Allan and Sylvia needed her; Lambton County EMS and St. Clair Township Fire for their quick response; Bob Pierce for all of his care and compassion shown to the Knight family and to our many funeral service colleges and friends who have reached out to offer their assistance.
