Ronald Knott, 81, of Euless, Texas passed away at his home on June 26, 2019. Funeral services were held on July 2 at the Ranch of Lonesome Dove.

Ron was born July 17, 2937 to O.B. Knott and Viola Ramshur.

Ron and his twin brother, Roland, were raised in Noble. Both graduated from Northwestern University in Natchitoches. Roland was commissioned in the USAF and Ron was commissioned in the Navy and entered the Flight School in Pensacola, Florida. Ron flew many types of jet fighters in the Navy, but the F-8 Crusader was his favorite. After seven years in the Navy Ron flew 30 years for Delta Airlines. He owned many private aircraft during this period.

Ron was an author, publishing 6 books, such as “Trophies of Heaven,” a study on how to witness for Jesus; “Supersonic Cowboys,” stories of flying in the navy, “Jesus Christ –Who is He?” the true God; “God’s Guarantees for Giving,” how to give the Bible way; “Testimonies for the Soul, ”amazing real life miracles; “Born Again the Bible Way,” Bible instructions; and many other Bible Studies.

Ron and his brother Roe, were also land developers, home builders, automobile dealers, oil & gas production, ranchers and many other ventures. Most importantly was the fact that Ron had weekly Bible Studies in his home for more than 25 years. He and Sharon were able to lead many to Jesus during that period. They also made mission trips to Russia, Romania, Philippines, Korea and Germany.

Ron said, “most of us only consider ourselves as human beings, with a small spiritual experience, when in fact, we are spiritual beings, with a short human existence. But what we do spiritually, during our human existence, will determine our spiritual address forever. Our human existence is usually over in 3 score and 10 (more or less) but our spiritual life will last forever. We should enjoy the former but not forget about the latter.” And one of Ron’s favorite scriptures in the Bible is; “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints” (Psalms 116:15). Ron would say, “Don’t stand over my grave and weep, for I am not dead, I do not sleep, I am more alive than I have ever been.”

He was preceded in death by his parents; and brother, O.B. Knott Jr.

He is survived by his wife Sharon; children, Keith Knott, Kimberly Yates, Kerry Knott and Kristi Knott; son-in-law, Terry Yates; twin brother, Roland B.

Knott and wife, Jackie of Canyon Creek, Texas; grandchildren, Josh Yates, Haley Conkle, Hannah Yates, Alexis Knott, Kaylea Knott; and great grandchildren,

Harper Conkle and Jayden Yates.
