Mark Knight Sr.
Dec 31, 1954-July 16, 2014
Resident of Hayward
Mark Wayne Knight Sr. passed away the early hours of Wednesday morning due to an unexpected illness. He was a lifetime resident of Hayward, Ca. He graduated from Sunset High School and attended Chabot Community College.
Mark started out as a Machinist at Tri-Valley Can Company, until opening "Grandma's Delicious Delights" Deli in 1984. After closing the Deli in 1988, he has worked a career in Maintenance and Landscaping. Mark's proudest accomplishments in life were always his children and the families they created. He is survived by four children Mark Knight Jr., Cori Knight, Troy Knight, and Dennis Asimus, and five grandchildren Destinee Knight, Emanuel Knight, Maleena Knight, Dominic Knight, and Gaige Mordus. He is also survived by a devoted mother Thiala Alberto Schmitt, brother's Dwayne Knight, August Schmitt, Dirk Linton, Danny Linton, and a sister Jill Sewill.
Mark will always be remembered for his ability to turn everyday into a memorable adventure and bring smiles, joy, and laughter to every person he knew. After being called home to rest with his father Ludwig Knight and grandmother Maria Alberto, Mark is believed to be creating a beautiful garden, full of colorful flowers and wild ideas and sharing his knowledge with his late daughter Brittany Knight and granddaughter Abbigail Modus.
Friends and family are invited to a visitation on Tuesday, July 22, 2014 from 6-8pm at Holy Angles Funeral Center in Hayward and a funeral mass on Wednesday, July 23, 2014 at 10:30 at All Saints Church in Hayward.
