Tad E Knight, 64, died unexpectedly on November 16th 2021. He was born September 25th 1957 in Torrington Wyoming, to Gard and June (Bryson) Knight.

While in high school he met his soul mate Julie (Walter) Knight. They were married in 1981 and had 3 girls, Jodee, Kelsey, and Holli. He was very proud of them and did everything that he could to help them, even when he didn’t want to.

You could always spot him in a crowd wearing his red hat.
