KNOX JOHN RICHARD 20.01.1937 - 21.04.2021 Son of Marjorie (dec) and Richard (dec). Passed away peacefully at SCGH. Deeply loved husband of Marilyn for 57 years. Adored father of Andrea (Craig) and Jennifer (John), and dear grandpa of Mingus, Oscar, Toby, Lucinda and Reid. Much loved brother of Brian (Gabrielle), Shirley (Jack, dec) and Beverley (Ron). We thank the medical staff who have worked with John since 2015 for their compassionate, thoughtful and committed care.

KNOX (John Richard):

A remarkable and very loved family patriarch. An amazing role model for so many. You showed us what a good, kind and generous man looks like with your boundless intellectual curiosity, interest in everything and your respect for everyone. You are sorely missed by us. Andrea, Craig, Toby, Lucinda and Reid xxxxx

KNOX (John Richard):

Our dear kind Dad/John/ Grandpa, we're forever grateful for the time with you and the gift of your example -- inquisitive, thoughtful, kind-hearted, generous and principled. A great traveller, determined puzzle-solver, creative thinker and tireless do-it- yourselfer. You will be missed beyond measure and in our hearts always. All our love, Jen, John, Mingus and Oscar

KNOX (John Richard):

Grandpa always wanted to help, whatever was needed. He shared his valuable experience with me at the driving range. One of the sweetest men I have known, he will be missed. Love, Toby

KNOX (John Richard):

Always kind and caring and sharing his sports knowledge with the people he loved. I am glad the Eagles won the last game we watched together. Miss you, Reid

KNOX (John Richard):

You showed me how to do Sudoku puzzles and I loved our family Phase 10 games at Dawesville. I learned so much from the stories you told about your life. Love you, Lucinda

  • KNOX (John):

    My memories of John are of him surrounded by family, good food and wine at many celebrations I was privileged to be part of. He was one of nature’s gentlemen and a warm and intelligent patriarch of his wonderful family. Vale John you will be missed and remembered well in the lives of those you leave behind.
