Obituary

Robert Walton Knight, 76, of Simsbury, beloved husband of Judy (Pyne) Knight, died Sunday, May 5, 2019 at his home. He was born July 29, 1942 in Baltimore, MD, son of the late George Laurence Knight and Dorothy (Walton) Knight Lenhart. He lived in Greenwich, CT prior to moving to Simsbury 50 years ago. Bob was a combat veteran of the Vietnam War where he served as a Captain in the U.S. Marine Corps. He was a graduate of Marietta College and was an IT Manager for Cigna and United Health Care for many years prior to his retirement. Bob had a passion for road cycling, golf, traveling with Judy and spending time with family. He was also a talented guitarist, singer-songwriter and pianist and is fondly remembered for his family Christmas caroling. Never did a cold winter’s night go by without him lighting a fire for all to enjoy. A very special place to him for many years, Westport Point, MA was a second home and a place where he loved to relax with Judy and family.

In addition to his loving wife Judy of 47 years, he is survived by his two sons, Christopher Knight and his wife Ruth of West Linton, Scotland, and Randy Knight and his wife Jessica of Fairfield, CT; his grandchildren, Anwen and Caelan Knight of Scotland and Ella, Saige, Sammy and Liam Knight of Fairfield; his brothers, John Knight and his wife Donna, and David Knight and his wife Ruth. He is also survived by other close family including Elizabeth and family, Sophie and family, Jeffrey, Margot, Jessica, Sandy, Greg, Carmen, Alyssa, Alex, Juliana and Lily.

A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held at 12pm on Monday 13th May at The Riverview, 10 Winslow Place, Simsbury, CT 06089. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Farmington Valley Trails Council () or the Westport Land Conservation Trust (). Please visit Bob’s “Book of Memories” at www.vincentfuneralhome.com for online tributes.

We both made it through that war
And came out the other side.
Before and after sang some songs so fine.

Tunes of Wayfaring Strangers
Moonshiners and friends
We left behind.

Now somehow it seems you also left,
Much like an unfinished song
But I smile knowing you're not gone

For I'll keep your notes of harmony
Locked in my heart
For you and me.

Bob was a great guy and I have many fond memories of growing up together in Havemeyer Park. Anne and I are so glad we had an opportunity to visit with he and Judy in 2016. He has a wonderful family and is so well regarded in his community. May he rest in peace in a better world.

I have known Bob for about 32 years going back to when I also worked at Cigna. When I became a Marketing representative for The Systems Group and Cigna was one of my accounts, Bob was a client of mine. When Bob retired from Cigna he became a consultant for The Systems Group and worked at UHC. Bob was also a long time golfing partner and we had a foursome and played once a week on Thursdays and this would have been our twenty fifth year. Bob enjoyed his biking, golf and spending time with his family. He was a good friend and he will be missed.

Bob and I were classmates and fraternity brothers at Marietta College. I recall so fondly when he came to visit me and my family in Silver Spring, Maryland, his guitar strumming at Marietta and being one of the finest guys I knew. While we haven't seen one another since graduation in 1965, I always admired him for his decision to go into the military (Marine Corps.) and his service to our country and all of us. And, I've had the pleasure of staying somewhat in contact with Bob through a good friend and his step-brother, Ross Lenhart. May Judy, his children and grandchildren know that Bob will always be remembered for his sterling character. Jack Hopkins (Marietta College class of 1965)
