Obituary for Sherman A. Knight
SHERMAN ALPHONZA KNIGHT, son of the late James A. & Ruth E. Knight was born in Crewe, Virginia on November 3, 1941. He departed this life, suddenly at his residence in Blackstone, Virginia, on April 10, 2012. Sherman, affectionately known as “TQ”, was baptized at an early age at Union Baptist Church.
TQ attended Nottoway Public Schools and graduated from Luther H. Foster High School in 1962. He worked for many years, at Piedmont Geriatric Hospital, until his health began to regress.
TQ loved being to himself but enjoyed his family, friends, and neighbors’ visits, as well as working in the yard (cutting grass, planting flowers, and gardening). TQ also had a passion for watching the wrestling and his favorite football team, the Green Bay Packers.
In addition to his parents, TQ was preceded in death by four brothers, Robert, James, Mercedes, and Harry, two sisters, Ida Reed and Dorothy Jennings, and grandson, Jawaan Hawkes.
