Vernon Dean Knight, 62, of Taylorsville, passed away September 22, 2003 of colon cancer, after a long battle fought with courage and dignity. His final days were filled with expressions of love and concern for and from his family and friends.
Dean was born in Salt Lake City on March 16, 1941, to Max Turner and Helen Thueson Knight. He was raised in the Bennion area as the oldest of four children and proudly served a mission in South Africa. On February 11, 1966 he married Sherry A'Neil Rock and was later sealed to her in the Salt Lake Temple. They created a happy home where they raised nine children. Their example of faithful Family Home Evening strengthened their children and inspired neighbors alike. Dean was an eager entrepreneur. His favorite endeavor was Fashion Corner where he gained respect as a fair and honest businessman. He touched the lives of many people he associated with during his successful career. He was an active member in the Taylorsville community and served on the Granite School Board. Dean was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and will long be remembered for his vast knowledge and love of the gospel. He found joy in each of his callings and truly loved the opportunity to teach. He will be remembered by many who were blessed by his generosity and willingness to serve. Dean's legacy is great. He leaves behind a loving family and a host of wonderful friends and neighbors who will miss him deeply. He is survived by his wife, Sherry; their children, Devan (Kathy), Jason (Kristi), Stacey, Amber (Dave) Anderson, Joelle, A'Neil, Elise, Clint, Emily; eight grandchildren, Dylan, Peyton, Caleb, Caaja, Sydney, Danica, Isaac, Lydia; brother, David (Marilyn); sister, Karla (Ron) Nuzman; mother-in-law, Ethelyn Rock; and an extended family of caring in-laws, nephews, nieces, and cousins. He is preceded in death by his parents and sister, Karen. We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support. Thank you for sharing the warmth of your friendship.
