Virgil Kelly Knight, Sr., 72, passed away peacefully at his home in Garden City, GA, December 18, 2019.
He loved his wife, “Trish”, of 50 years. He was a dedicated father to Pooh Bear and Sonny Boy. “Papa” adored his three grandsons.

The vegetables he grew were shared with family and friends. He also enjoyed discovering his roots through genealogy which connected him with family across the nation.
His reputation as an honest and dependable businessman allowed him to be owner/operator of Knight’s Service Company for 40 years.

Knight; grandsons, Dalton, Keaton, and Colton Knight; four sisters and one brother: Marie Tippins, Laverne Hall, Pat Maltos, Grace Knight, and James (Tobby) Knight; as well as many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert & Lola Knight, his sister, Jessie Lee Willoughby, and brother, Bill Knight.
