Warren Knight

Warren Knight of Cabot, a loving husband, father and a cornerstone of the community, passes at the age of 71 on Sunday, Feb. 27, 2005. He was born Oct. 24, 1933 at home in Fruitvale, TN. He was a longstanding member of the First Baptist Church of Cabot. He believed and loved the Lord his entire life.

Warren was married to the love of his life, Sandra, for 52 years. They were high school sweethearts who married at the ages of 17 & 19.

In his early life, Warren worked with his father at the Ford Motor Co. and A&P Grocery in Memphis. Warren quickly was promoted through the grocery business ending up in North Little Rock as the Arkansas Division Supervisor for Weingarten’s, a Houston based grocery chain. In 1971, after working 11 years with Weingarten’s, Warren left his job and moved to Cabot where he purchased Thompson’s Dollar Saver to go into business for himself. Warren and Sandra, along with their three sons worked hard to build a successful business, which is celebrating its 34th anniversary this month.

Warren was the backbone of a very close knit family which consisted of 3 sons and their families. He was always quick to contribute good advice to those who were willing to listen. Warren always had his opinions and sometimes voiced them, but always encouraged you to make your own decisions. His love was unconditional and free of judgment.

Anyone who ever worked with Warren was very familiar with his “penny” story. He used that story as an example to show that to make a dollar, you have to start with a penny. Warren was known for his generosity in supporting the needs of local families, community, and surrounding area organizations such as churches, sport groups, schools, and civic needs.

Warren made sure that the customer was always the most valued asset of his business. He also considered many of his employees extended members of his family. Many went on to start their own successful businesses with his blessing.

Warren was passionate about many things in life, including his love of family and friends, sports, especially the Razorbacks, reminiscing with old stories, water skiing, deep sea fishing, cooking and eating.

Warren accomplished many things in his life. In the early seventies he sponsored the first pee wee football and baseball organization that continues on today. He avidly supported the successful effort to start the Cabot High School baseball program. Warren was also an accomplished pilot acquiring his private pilot’s license in 1977.

He will be greatly missed by all those who were fortunate enough to have known his love, honesty, and generosity, along with his light-hearted humor.
Warren lived, loved, and was loved.

He is survived by his wife, Sandra; his sons Keith, wife Cherie, Kent, wife Karen, Kevin, wife Karmen; one older sister, Mary Ann Mathis and a younger brother, Vandon Knight, 11 Grandchildren, and 3 Great-Grandchildren. He was predeceased by his parents, Marvin and Louise Knight and in-laws Luke and Louise Kelley.

Funeral services will be 1:00 p.m. Thursday, March 3, 2005 at the First Baptist Church in Cabot. Burial to follow in Mt. Carmel Cemetery.

Public viewing will be from 10:00 a.m. till 8:00 p.m. Wednesday, March 2 at the funeral home. The family will receive friends from 5:00 p.m. till 8:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, please send contributions to the American Diabetes. Association.

Arrangements under the direction of Moore’s Cabot Funeral Home, (501) 843-5816.
