John Knight Obituary

John S. Knight, 59, of Goshen, NY, died peacefully on Monday, January 8, 2024, at Montefiore Nyack Hospital, Nyack, NY. He was born July 25, 1964, in Cornwall, NY; the son of the late Robert W. and Beverly L. (Plank) Knight.

He was self-employed as a talented painter and carpenter doing home repair. His family lovingly stated, “He was a hell-raiser and a rascal.” His sense of humor made his family and friends explode with laughter. John loved to draw and sketch, using colored pencil and chalk. His beautiful artwork decorates our homes. He was always willing to help anyone in need. He spent many years in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida because of his love of the sun, surf, and sand.

John is survived by two sisters, Ruth Stack of Jackson, NJ and Jan VanHage of Chester, NY; sister-in-law, Gia Knight of Goshen, NY; six nieces and nephews: Dariel Stack, Timothy Stack, Bryson Cooper, Carly Knight, Derek Knight, Brianna D’Ambrosio; and several great nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by brothers, Jack L. Knight, Robert W. Knight Jr., and niece, Rachael M. Knight.
