Peacefully, surrounded by the love of his family, James Robert Knights, passed away after a brave battle with cancer, at Stratford General Hospital, on Wednesday, July 31, 2019. He was 73 years old.

Jim is predeceased by his parents Reginald and Charity (née Snell) Knights, and siblings-in-law Keith and Barbara Bennewies, Mavis Wilds, Loretta Bennewies, Janet Bennewies, Eugene Dale and Leonard Morrison.

Jim enjoyed the kids that were babysat by Joanne. He loved to tease them and have fun with them. He asked Janet if she liked grapes and let her taste some special dark grape. To her surprise these were olives and she made a big fuss not liking Jim's grapes. Always nice to see him around town while Joanne was about doing her shopping. Sympathy to all his family who are sure to miss his cheery nature. MAy happy memories ease you through this difficult time.
