Don Alma Knight
1922 ~ 2014

Dr. Don Knight, age 82, passed away May 5 after a long battle with Alzheimer's. He was born March 5, 1932 in Cedar City, Utah to Wanda and Royce Knight. He married Amy Adams of Parowan, Utah on July 6, 1951 in the St. George Temple. They are the parents of 4 children, Jan (Mark) Meyers, Craig (Charlotte) Knight, Danna (Larry) Johnson and Julie Woodward. He has 21 grandchildren and 27 great grandchildren.

Don loved the out of doors and found great joy in the beauties of the earth. He worked his way through college at Zion National Park and had a life-long love of the natural beauty of Southern Utah and the Rocky Mountains. His love of the outdoors was evident in his many high adventure activities with the Young Men of the Church. He was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served in many positions in the Church, including a 2 year mission with his sweet Amy, in the St. Louis, Missouri Temple.

Don earned his PhD in Elementary Education from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. Besides his work in education he had a great love of theater. Don wrote some children's books and several children's plays, one of which was performed at the University of Utah. He also directed many church productions including a church pageant "Independence 1830", which was performed in Independence, Missouri.

Don loved life and loved his family, all of whom have many cherished memories.
