Rest In Peace ~ Ronald Lester Knott




b. April 11, 1946
d. April 15, 2016

Lifelong Livermore resident Ron Knott passed away, at the age of 70, after a hard-fought battle with esophageal cancer. Ron will be remembered as a kind, gentle man, a beloved father and a loving husband- the kind of person you come across once in a lifetime. 

Ron graduated from Livermore High School, earned his Bachelor's degree from San Francisco State University and served his country as a pilot in the United States Naval Reserve, receiving an honorable discharge in 1969. Ron approached his roles as husband, father, and grandfather with a steady love and tenderness that, while unassuming, knew no bounds.

Ron will forever be loved by his wife Pam, his children Adam and Jessica, step-daughters Dana and Jill, his grandchildren Olivia, Michael, Adrian, Elijah, Emmy, and Zoey, siblings Don and Kay, as well as countless friends and family members.

Anyone who had the pleasure of knowing Ron was inspired by his committed trust and hope in the Lord. The strength Ron displayed throughout his life and struggle with cancer is surpassed only by his unwavering faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. His was a life that demonstrates the true meaning of walking by faith.

I met Ron at a BBQ last summer. He was ill, but pushed on for the rest of his life. He bowled with my husband in the same league. I am honored to have met him. What a strong man! You will be greatly missed Ron, rest in peace.

Peace and Love to your family.
