Donald W. Knox, 70, of Lampasas died March 2, 2018 at his residence.

A memorial service was held March 7 at First Street Church of Christ. Mr. Knox’s body will be cremated. Sneed Funeral Chapel had charge of arrangements.

Mr. Knox was born Dec. 23, 1947 in Sherman, Texas, the son of C.C. “Skip” Knox and Josephine (Gomez) Knox.

He grew up in Vernon and moved with his parents during his junior year to Iowa Park, where he graduated in 1966.

Mr. Knox attended Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls and remained in Wichita Falls most of his adult life. For a number of years he managed a vehicle repair facility, and later he managed a finance company in Wichita Falls and one in San Angelo.

He had moved back to Lampasas several years ago and had worked in the water purification industry with a firm based in Round Rock.

Mr. Knox enjoyed hunting and fishing, and spent the first part of his life participating in water sports and all manner of outdoor activities.

In his later years, he became a spectator of all the activities his great-nephews and nieces took part in. He was their number-one supporter and fan.

Mr. Knox loved to travel, and for several years he worked for a corporation that facilitated that love as he traveled throughout the U.S. and several places overseas.

He is survived by a sister, Anita Hayward and husband Dennis of Phoenix, Arizona; a brother, Rusty Knox and wife Sharon of Lampasas County; and by numerous nieces and nephews.

Mr. Knox was preceded in death by a brother, Neal Knox.
