Bruce Knight

Bruce Calvin Knight “Big Dog,” 69, a resident of Enon, passed away April 10, 2020.

He was an avid outdoorsman who loved fishing, hunting and farming. He retired from the LA Wildlife and Fisheries as a Wildlife Technician.

His favorite places to be were at the barn and Mosher Hill Hunting Club. In 1986, he played a big role in starting the hunting club where he served as president for 34 years. Mosher Hill was a place where he shared his passion of the outdoors with everyone around him, most importantly, with children.

He is survived by his wife, Sandra Guilott Knight; son, Joseph Anthony Knight “Tony” and daughter, Nancy Knight Stanberry and son-in-law, William Lawrence Stanberry, III “Trey” and two grandsons, William Lawrence Stanberry IV “Will” and Wesley James Stanberry; a sister, Sharon Knight-Naquin, her husband Steven Naquin, a sister-in-law Christine Knight of New York; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Glenda and James Sharp, Sue and Jammie Singletary, Howard and Alice Guilott and Wayne Guilott; and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, John Harold Knight and Harriet Carr Knight; brothers, Steve Knight and Gregg Knight; and mother-in-law and father-in-law, Clarence and Juanita Guilott.

At this time with the COVID-19 virus pandemic, a service will not be held but there will be a celebration of his life held at Mosher Hill Hunting Club at a later date that Brother Chris Wheeler, pastor of Enon Baptist Church, will officiate.
