Danny, of Waxahachie, was born in Wichita Falls, on August 31,1954, to Bud and Ethel Mae “Cricket” Knight. He won his angel wings on April 9,2021, at UTSW Clements Hospital.

He was the youngest of six children. Bobby, Maxine, Betty, Buddy, and Kathy.
Danny was raised in Petty, Texas where he graduated from West Lamar High School in 1973.
On May 4,1974, he met Lyne at his best friend’s wedding. They married on November 16, 1974.
Danny joined the Air Force in January 1975, becoming an Air Traffic Controller, in October. About that time the Air Force discovered he had kidney disease. They came home to Paris, Texas where he worked for Campbell Soup.

In 1985, he went to work at the US Post Office in Dallas, after having a kidney transplant in 1984.

Him and Lyne were blessed with three fantastic children and eight beautiful grandchildren. His love for them kept him going.

Danny never met a stranger. He called many of you to tell you good bye. In his pocket, is a list of the people he is going to tell, you love them.

He is survived by his wife, Lyne, their children, sons, John (Angie) Knight, Danny (Amy) Knight, and daughter Heaven (Jared) Woolverton. Their eight grandchildren, Mackenzie Knight, Jalyn Knight, Mason Knight, Landry Knight, London Knight, Madie Knight, Jax Woolverton and Broox Woolverton. His sister Kathy (Jim) Hall of Tyler. His nieces Beth (Allen) Spinks, their children and grandchildren, and Rebecca (Kyle) Rhodes and their children.

We want to thank Cindy Wright, Dr. Dewey Long, Dr. David Nesser, Dr. Aslan Turer, Dr. James Daniels, Dr Bartolome, Dr. Paul Skluzacek and Dr. Ruben Velez. These fine people and their associates have given us many years of laughter and joy. The nursing staff at Methodist Dallas and UTSW have been excellent, giving him the care he needed to keep going. Thank you to The Fresenius Dialysis Center in Waxahachie, which has been his home away from home, three days a week for 22 years.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the American Kidney Fund, the DAV, or a charity of your choice.
