Jack C. Knight of Suffolk, Virginia passed away on October 28, 2020 at the age of 81. He made friends
everywhere he went and could make anyone laugh with his quick wit.
Jack was preceded in death by his parents Hulda and Thurman Knight. Left to cherish his memory
forever are his children Angela (Kyle) Hannan of North Carolina, Chuck Knight, and Allison (Cory) Mayo;
grandchildren Margo Hannan, Kade Hannan, Jackie (Chaz) LaFave, Julia Knight, Jack Mayo and Grace
Mayo; and his sister Janet Piland.
Jack was a known NASCAR enthusiast who built thousands of model racecars. Not only was his
collection impressive but so was the size of his heart. He loved his grandkids to no end and even had a
soft spot for stray and neighbor’s dogs, whom he would feed regularly. He coached youth softball teams,
was a member of the Chuckatuck Volunteer Fire Department and the Suffolk Police Auxiliary. He was also
a member of the Chuckatuck Ruritan Club and Oakland Christian Church in Suffolk.
Jack Knight will be missed. He lit up a room with his smile. Jack made people laugh. He was a fun-loving
man and a friend to so many. Instead of flowers, please do something kind for a person or animal in
memory of Jack.
The previously planned memorial service for Jack has been postponed at this time. The new date and time for his memorial service will be posted here in the future.
