My Husband's Obituary
John Kelly Knox, 67 of Liberal, Missouri, passed away peacefully on July 10, 2021 at home surrounded by his large family. He leaves behind his wife, Rebecca Knox of the home; children Rudy (Angie) Knox, Zachary (Bobby) Knox, Amber (Patrick) Pennington, Buddy (Christy) Vansel, Amanda (Aaron) Langston, Tony (Nicole) Knox, a daughter, Stephanie (Chris), in Wyoming, a son, Johnny; twenty grandchildren, and many beloved cousins.
He was preceded in death by his father, Rudy Virgil Knox, his mother, Mary Agnes (Cuda) Knox, and a half-sister, Dolly.
John had a variety of interests including a love for the Lord Jesus Christ, a love for his family and friends, reading, writing, politics, gardening, history, and cooking. He was also proud of his Sicilian heritage on his mother's side, and his Scotch-Irish ancestry on his father's side, yet was a true American patriot in every way.
John pastored West Liberal Mission Outreach for twenty-five years, and served as Alderman for the City of Liberal, Missouri from 2012 to 2014.
Above all, John wanted nothing more than for those he loved and held dear to know and follow Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
A Celebration of Life is planned July 24th at the Kneeland Center in Liberal, Missouri from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with potluck following the service.
Until next time...
