Lester Gee Funeral Home - New London Obituary

Charles A. Knight, 62, beloved husband to Lilibea "Libby" Smith, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, August 18, 2019. He was born on November 19, 1956 in Bethel, North Carolina to the late William Luther Knight and Dorothy Lee Stanton. 

Charles was a resident of Rocky Hill, Connecticut for a brief period of time. He passed away after a short illness which had been disclosed to him a month prior to his passing.

Charles leaves behind his new wife Libby whom has 3 daughters, 4 grandchildren, 3 sister in-laws, and 2 brother in-laws. He also leaves to cherish his precious memory 2 sons, Charles Jr. and Jesse Knight, 6 grandchildren, 4 brothers, Joseph Stanton, William (Bill) Knight, David Knight and George Knight whom all had several children and one sister, Mary Ann Knight whom also had several children. Charles also leaves behind a host of nieces, nephews, several grandchildren and friends. 

Charles was an ordained minister and received his certificate at Shiloh Baptist Church, New London under the presiding pastor +Bishop Watts. Charles gave to the streets and ministered to the homeless. He gave from his heart and had plenty of female friends as well. My husband was a man of God who always preached to people, even though he did what he did to survive. He was truly a son of God and anyone who knew him could testify to that on his behalf. Charles was not only my husband but he was my best friends. We went places together and did a lot together. He will always remain in my heart and on my mind. I want to thank everyone who came out to show some love for my husband and who truly cared for him. He was a good father, husband, friend, brother, and grandfather. He will be forever missed. Thank you.

- Lovingly submitted by Mrs. Lilibea R. Smith Knight
