Obituary for Christopher Kim Knight

Christopher Kim Knight, 66, passed away on October 14, 2018 in Lansing, MI. He was born on December 9, 1951 to Kendall O. and Gwendolin (Miller) Knight of Grand Ledge. After graduating from Grand Ledge High School in 1971, he attended Lansing Community College while working as a master mechanic before beginning a career at General Motors as regional service manager at locations in Michigan and Texas. Following working for GM in San Antonio, Texas while in his 30s, he transferred back to Michigan and the Lansing area, where he would live for the reminder of his life. He was a long-time member of the First Congregational United Church of Christ in Grand Ledge.

Chris was the oldest of four children and preceded in death by his father, Kendall. He is survived by his mother Gwen, sister Terra (Bill) Nordstrom, sister Sandra (Jim) Pogue, and brother Kip (Melanie) Knight, along with six nieces and nephews. All will miss him dearly.

Chris was a skilled guitarist who not only loved playing his favorite rock-n-roll but also enjoyed giving lessons. (The Beatles were his all-time his favorite.) In the 1980s, he founded and operated Blue Sky Audio, a music recording and production company. Later, he gained licensure as a real estate broker. Chris was proud of his training as a small plane pilot and even captained a solo flight. Other activities he enjoyed included scuba diving, skiing and traveling. In recent years, Chris was especially devoted to keeping in close touch with his mother in Grand Ledge, while he lived at a nearby senior living community with fellow residents who became good friends.

Memorial services will be held on Saturday, October 20, 2018, at 3 pm at the First Congregational United Church of Christ, Grand Ledge, 210 W. Saginaw Hwy, Grand Ledge, followed by refreshments.
