Joshua M. Knight

Joshua M. Knight, 21, of Williamsport, could no longer fight the demons within and took his own life on Wednesday, August 8, 2018.

Born Oct. 12, 1996, in Williamsport, he was a son of Tammi J. Knight and Jeffrey L. Harvey, of South Williamsport.

Joshua was the proud father of Rylan, Asher and Killian, who were his pride and joy. An avid Philadelphia Eagles fan Josh relished in the super bowl victory this year. He enjoyed all types of sports including football, wrestling and baseball and could be found playing his Xbox and looking forward to the next Madden game release.

Josh enjoyed the outdoors and his lively, humorous personality would show anytime he could increase his speed and get a little mud on himself, the four- wheeler, and even his passengers. He will be greatly missed by his family and best friends, Kyle, Ryan and Jesse who he loved to hang out with.

Surviving in addition to his parents and three sons are his girlfriend, AaliahRai Tupper, of Williamsport; four siblings: Amanda M. Knight, of Akron, Ohio, Ryan C. Knight (Ally), Cassandra M. Shearer (Jacob), all of Muncy, and Larry H. Knight, III (Samantha), of Williamsport; two grandmothers, Shirley J. Staggert and Sandra M. Steers, both of Muncy; seven nieces; six nephews; several aunts and uncles and many special extended family members.

Josh was preceded in death by two step grandfathers, Robert Staggert and Grant Steers.

A funeral service to honor the life of Joshua will be held 1 p.m. Monday, August 13 at Sanders Mortuary, 821 Diamond St., Williamsport. A viewing will be held from 12 noon until the time of service on Monday at Sanders.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Josh’s name may be made to Prevent Suicide PA, 525 S. 29th St., Harrisburg, PA 17104 or on his Memorial Tribute page at to help the family with expenses.
