Michael John Knight, 55, of Utica, passed away on March 9, 2021 at St. Elizabeth Medical Center after a battle with COVID-19. He was born in Brooklyn on October 10, 1965, a son of Stephen III and Anna (Murphy) Knight. Michael loved his city of birth and always considered Brooklyn his home. He was a big NY Mets fan and always looked forward to the start of the season. Michael had a photographic memory that came in handy with his family as he could easily settle any debate about historic events, big or small. He will be remembered as a kind-hearted and outgoing man, loved by all who knew him. Michael will be missed by his father and stepmother, Stephen III and Charlotte Knight; his two brothers, John Knight and Jim Knight; his two nephews and niece, Stephen V, John Jr., and Kristina; and his great niece and great nephew, Anna and Stephen VI. He was predeceased by his mother, Anna Knight; and two brothers, Tom and Stephen IV. Private services will be held for the family. Arrangements by Owens-Pavlot & Rogers Funeral Service, Clinton, NY.
