Ronald C. Knight, 67, of Fox Lake, IL went home to be with the Lord January 6, 2022, at Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville. He was born September 29, 1954, in Elgin, IL to the late Fulton and Estelle (nee Topar) Knight. Ron is survived by his loving wife, Karen; four children, Dawnann (Bill) Little, Dawn (Andy) Dow, Rhonda Rhodes, and Nathan (Rebekah) Knight; one son-in-law, Jim Parker; eleven grandchildren; six great grandchildren; two sisters, Nancy (David Young) Knight and Pam (Don) Springer; and many friends who loved him dearly. In addition to his parents, Ron was preceded in death by his wife of 32 years, Carol Knight; one sister, Claudette Urban; and one daughter, Jennifer Parker.
Ron worked at Acuity Lighting for over 30 years in both Northbrook, and later as the Maintenance Project Manager in their plant in Crawfordsville, IN.
Ron became a believer in Jesus Christ in his 20s, and loved to serve the Lord in many ways. He married Carole shortly afterwards and was her caregiver for five years before she passed away in 2013. He served at Christian Life Church in Mt. Prospect and Eastside Assembly of God in Lafayette, IN, where he served on the Elder Board as well as a variety of other ministries. Ron always wanted to do short term missions, and after Carole died, he was able to fulfill that dream. He went to Togo, Africa, The Netherlands, and Haiti a couple times. He loved the Lord, and most of all was a praying man.
A celebration of life service will be held on Sunday, January 9, 2022, at 4pm, with visitation from 3pm-4pm, at CrossPoint Church, 27430 W. Nippersink Road, Ingleside, IL.
