February 22, 1960 - November 30, 2021
Life Reflections The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalms 23 Mr. Levon Knight, was born to the late Johnnie Robert Knight and Carrie Louise Harper Knight on February 21, 1960 in Tarboro NC.

Grieve if you will, but not for long upon my soul’s sweet flight. I am at peace, my soul at rest. There is no need for tears, for with your love I was so blessed for all those many years. There is no pain, I suffer not the fear is now all gone. Put these things out of your thoughts in your memory I live on. Remember not my fight for breath, remember not the strife. Please do not dwell upon my death but celebrate my life. ~Acknowledgements~ The family of the late Levon Knight wishes to express sincere thanks to everyone for their acts of love, kindness and prayers.
