John Knox Obituary

John H. Knox, 73, of Lakeville, Massachusetts went to be with his Lord and Savior Friday morning, February 16, 2024 at St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford, Massachusetts.

He was born on July 25, 1950 in Taunton, son of the late David L. and Jeanette I. (Hardy) Knox, and is also predeceased by an older brother Lawrence D. Knox and brother-in-law Samuel Z. Abraham. He is survived by his beloved daughter, Marietta T. (Knox) Nelson; three grandsons: Tyler James Nelson, Alex James Nelson, and Jaybyn Brodie Rood; sister, Sharon L. (Knox) Abraham of Tyrone, PA; brother, Richard T. Knox of Gardner; niece Trisha (Knox) Hellen of North Easton; nephew Adam Knox of Dorchester; niece Sarah (Abraham) McCloskey of Pittsburgh, PA; sister-in-law Nina (Healey) Knox of Dorchester and former spouse Diane T. E. (Lavine) Jarvis, as well as numerous cousins.

John was a 1969 graduate of Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School and went on to Merrimack College in North Andover, where he obtained his B.S. in Electrical Engineering in 1974. John worked for the government his entire life, and was retired. John excelled in duckpin bowling, and competed in a number of tournaments and went on to win a number of them. John became a Christian in the mid-1970’s and faithfully attended Lakeville Church of the Nazarene for the rest of his life. He loved to study his Bible, he had also taught Sunday School, and loved conversing about the Bible with his late brother-in-law Sam. He had a great sense of humor, and delighted in teasing the people he loved, especially his daughter. John overcame many obstacles in his life because of his hearing impairment.
