RONALD KNIGHT, 77, LOUISVILLE, KY (ADAIR COUNTY NATIVE)


Ronald Knight, 77, of Louisville, KY passed peacefully in the early morning hours of Monday, June 20, 2022. Born and raised in Adair County, KY, he was the third child born to William and Cecil Knight.


After marrying his high school sweetheart, Wanda Josephine, the two settled in Louisville in 1966. Loved by many, “Pappy Choo-Choo,” due to his 30 plus years of faithful service to the K & I Railroad and Norfolk Southern Railway as a switchman and engineer, was quick to tease (with a look of mischief in his eye) children and adults, and even quicker to help a neighbor who needed a lawn mowed or advice on fixing everything from a car engine to a leaking roof.

He played baseball for the Adair County High School, followed by a brief stint at Western Kentucky University. Later in life, he took a slower pace playing on various men’s softball teams. He never lost the competitive spirit.

SURVIVORS:

His wife of 58 years: Joey Knight

3 daughters: Ronetta (Todd) Miller, Danyale (Jason) Rich, and Kimberly (Bobby) Binder

2 bonus daughters: Karen (Ronnie) McDonough and Paula (Eric) Newman

9 grandchildren: Cayla Reed, Allie Rich, Sydney Rich, Nicki Holston, Kenneth Slayton, Kyle Newman, Ryan Newman, Gracie McDonough, and Cole Newman

2 great grandchildren: Hayden Holston, and Nolan Holston

Numerous nieces & nephews

2 sisters: Phyllis (Eddie) Fisher and Eileen Bottoms

1  brother: William (Lana) Knight, Jr.

2 sisters-in-law: Jeanette (Donald) Knight and Ruby (Danny) Lawless

 

In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by a brother, Donald Knight and a sister, Nelda Ferguson.
