RUSSELL JAMES McKNIGHT
October 12, 1946 – December 2, 2016
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear brother, uncle, cousin, great uncle, and friend, Russ McKnight. He was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Ruth, and his brother-in-law, David Lister. He is survived by his brother, Don; sisters, Linda Bryson and Sylvia Lister; nieces and nephews, Angie Conway, Sarah Watts (Rod), Matt Bryson (Jenn), Joel Bryson, Donnie (Lindsey), Taryn Lister (Dave), and Andrew Lister; numerous cousins, and great nieces and nephews. Russ dedicated himself to his community through volunteerism and participation in numerous organizations and projects, including community bands, choral, theatre, multiculturalism, nature, and community service. His efforts and involvement made our community a better place, and he was honoured to have been recognized with the province’s first Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal in 1996, and the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2013, as well as many other awards. A celebration of Russ’s life will be held on Sunday, December 18th at 2:00 p.m. in St. Andrew’s United Church Social Hall, 60 Athabasca St. East, Moose Jaw. Flowers are gratefully declined.
