WILLIAM (BILL) JAMES KNIGHT
March 21, 1943 - August 30, 2020

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Bill Knight on Sunday, August 30, 2020 at the Selkirk Hospital with his wife by his side.
Bill was predeceased by his parents, George and Kathleen; sisters, Patricia and Margaret; brothers, George and Donald.
Bill is survived by his wife Lisa; children, Darryl (Diane), Wendy, Kevin, Kerri (Pat), Steele and Ian: grandchildren, Travis (Jade), Wade (Michelle), Evan, Amber (Rod), Kambrie, Kyra, Falyn (Kyle) and great- granddaughter Brooklyn; sister June; sisters- in-law, Val (Wade) and Cindy (Mark); brother- in-law Mark (Anjali) and numerous nieces and nephews .
Bill was born in Toronto, moved to Winnipeg and settled in the St. James area, where he enjoyed many years with his family. Bill met Lisa, the love of his life, in 1990 and they had their son Steele in 2000. Bill was a kind, hardworking man, who with Lisa, have fostered many children over the years. Together they have made a difference in so many lives. So much so that they still keep in contact with many of their foster children today.
Bill will be remembered to be a patient, fun-loving man with a keen sense of humour, who truly enjoyed life, loved a good deal and loved his family unconditionally.
Over the years, Bill was employed at Canada Packers, Flynn Roofing and then self -employed as a roofer. His main career was as a salesman for different dealerships in Winnipeg and for the last 14 years, at Selkirk Dodge Chrysler Jeep. Bill was very well known as an ambassador for Selkirk.
Bill was a collector of hockey memorabilia and had a real zest for life. Bill always had a love for the classic cars. Bill was finally starting to relax and enjoy his country lifestyle.
A private Celebration of Life service will take place at the Sobering Funeral Chapel in Beausejour, MB in the next week with Pastor Rudy Fidel officiating. Pallbearers will be Ian Green, Darryl Knight, Kevin Knight, Travis Knight, Wade Knight and Evan Knight. Honorary pallbearers will be Wade Taylor Sr., Mark Goshulak and Mark Caplan.
The family would like to thank the staff at Selkirk Hospital on the Medical Surge ward.
Flowers gratefully declined and if you wish you may donate to Faith Temple Church, c/o 522 Roberta Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R2K 0K8.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Sorry to hear of Bill’s passing, we would like to express our sincere condolences to the family. - Posted by: Allen and Sylva Inman (Friends ) on: Dec 02, 2020

  • I worked with Bill at Selkirk Chrysler for almost 7 years. He had a knack for making me laugh, telling colourful jokes and, on occasion, giving me hugs. He was always in tune with everything going on around him and was very helpful. During my time at Selkirk Chrysler he also got to know our son, Brandon (he worked there at times) and Brandon always told me he really liked Bill (mostly because he gave me a hard time--all in fun) and enjoyed his humour. We will really miss him. Our heartfelt condolences to you and your family Lisa. - Posted by: Carmen Walker (Co-worker at Selkirk Chrysler) on: Sep 18, 2020

  • Lisa, my condolences to you and your family. Even though I've only met Bill briefly once or twice over the years I remember him as a hard working and kind person. My prayers are with you at this time. - Posted by: Susan Susan McKague (friend) on: Sep 07, 2020
