Roland Knight, 70, of Salida died Jan. 20, 2018, at his home.

He was born March 29, 1947, in Durango to Leroy and Melba Knight.

He moved to Grand Junction Regional Center when he was 10 years old and remained there until 2000, when he moved to Starpoint’s E Street Group Home in Salida to be closer to his brother, Randy.

Mr. Knight loved being at home and participating in activities with his many friends at Starpoint, and he especially loved Christmas, birthdays, kids, animals, motorcycles, hanging out with his buddies and enjoying a good meal.

Friends said he had a sweet spirit and was universally adored by everyone who knew him and will be missed by everyone at Starpoint. One of his favorite phrases was “Oh boy!”

Survivors include his brother, Randy (Sandy) Knight.

His memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Feb. 17, 2018, at First Presbyterian Church. He will be buried in the family plot in Westcliffe.

Arrangements are with Lewis and Glenn Funeral Home in Salida.
