Steven Thomas Knight
Steven Thomas Knight was born to Margaret Ann Knight and the late Joseph Earl Knight in Willingboro, NJ on July 3rd, 1966. Steven grew up in Burlington City and also graduated from Burlington City High School. Following High School, Steven went on to serve in the United States Navy (USS Shasta) for four years followed by another four years in the United States Army (Sergeant Knight).
Steven was a true Dallas Cowboys Fan and his nickname for everyone he encountered was “Boom Howard.” He loved sharing his navy and army stories with any and everyone that he encountered. To know Steven was to absolutely love him. His smile was contagious and he had a heart of gold.
Steven was known to many, if not all, as “Uncle Steve.” Not only was he a son, but he was also a father, a grandfather, a brother, a nephew, an uncle and a friend. One of his favorite mantras was, “I tell you one thing,” and he loved nothing more than to stick out those three fingers when trying to explain himself. If you knew Steven then you knew what those three fingers looked like and what they meant.
Steven “Uncle Steve” leaves to cherish in his memory, his mother Margaret Ann Knight, his daughter: Danicqua Knight-Chapman and his future son in law: Troy Edmondson Jr., four grandchildren: Jaykwon Edmondson, Tanzania Edmondson, Amari Edmondson and King Edmondson, six siblings: Carla Warren (Zachary Warren), James “Pete” Knight, Lisa Knight, Andrea Knight, Sylvia Knight and Maurice Harris, a host of nieces (great nieces) nephews (great nephews), cousins, his childhood friend Rodney “Tip” Williams, a few close friends “Dan Dan” Hawkins, Michael Hawkins and Curtis Tooles, and his longtime friend Reverend Torrance Lamar Mitchell whom he served alongside in the U.S. Army and a host of other relatives and friends who he loved deeply.
Steven departed this earth on 3/16. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
