Obituary

Bobby Denton Knight, age 54 of Converse passed away Tuesday, May 12, 2020 in his Converse home surrounded by his family.

Bobby was born January 3, 1966 in Marion, Indiana the son of the late Jerry Knight and Barbara (Showen) Knight.  His mother survives. 

Bobby married Mary Buckler on July 3, 1998 and she was the love of his life.  He was self-employed and a jack of all trades.  He loved his family and his little dogs.  He was an outdoorsman, loved to kayak, and drink Bud by the river.  He enjoyed fishing, camping, loved cars n trucks and especially loved getting a laugh out of Judge Judy!  He was a superior role model, a father figure to the community and always the life of the party!  If anyone ever had a problem he was just a phone call away.  He always had the best advice and steered you in the right direction.  He was the glue that held everyone together.  Bobby especially loved spending time with his kids and grandchildren and he never met a stranger.

He is survived by his amazing wife of 32 years, Mary Knight of Converse; his mother, Barbara Knight of Meir; two sons, Kyle (Lacie) Baxter of Murfreesboro, Tennessee and Jiles Buckler of Muncie; a daughter, Brittany (Derrick) Burnett of LaFontaine; two brothers, Jerry Knight of Georgia and Randall Knight of Meir; a sister, Rhea (Rick) Smith of Wartrace, Tennessee; and 3 grandchildren, Brilynn Burnett,  Jayden Baxter and Peyton Baxter.
