US NAVY Veteran LCDR - DELTA Captain Ronald J. Knott
July 17, 1937 - June 26, 2019
Notification with the passing of Navy military veteran and retired Delta Captain Ronald J. Knott age 81. Ron joined Delta Air Lines 01-03-1967 and retired with Delta in April 1997 as Captain, based at DFW. He is survived by his wife Sharon and four children; Keith Knott; Kimberly Yates, Kerry Knott, and Kristi Knott. One twin Brother, Roland B. Knott. He has 5 grandchildren; Josh Yates, Haley Conkle, Hannah Yates, Alexie Knott, Kaylea Knott and 2 great-grandchildren, Harper Conkle and Jayden Yates.
The Knott Twins were raised in Noble, LA. And both graduated from Northwestern University, Natchitoches, LA. Roland was commissioned in the USAF and Ron entered was commissioned the Navy at Flight School in Pensacola, FL. Ron flew many types of jet fighters in the navy, but the F-8 Crusader was his favorite. After seven years in the navy, Ron flew 30 years for Delta Airlines. He owned many private aircraft during this period.
Ron was an author, publishing 6 books, such as “Trophies of Heaven” (a study on how to witness for Jesus). “Supersonic Cowboys” (stories of flying in the navy), “Jesus Christ – Who is He?” (the true God), “God’s Guarantees for Giving” (how to give the Bible way), “Testimonies for the Soul” (Amazing real-life miracles), “Born Again the Bible Way” (Bible instructions), and many other Bible Studies.
Ron and his brother Roe, were also land developers, home builders, automobile dealers, oil & gas production, ranchers and many other ventures. Most importantly was the fact that Ron had weekly Bible Studies in his home for more than 25 years. He and Sharon were able to lead many to Jesus during that period. They also made mission trips to Russia, Romania, Philippines, Korea, and Germany. 
Ron said, “most of us only consider ourselves as human beings, with a small spiritual experience, when in fact, we are spiritual beings, with a short human existence. But what we do spiritually, during our human existence, will determine our spiritual address forever. Our human existence is usually over in 3 score and 10 (more or less) but our spiritual life will last forever. We should enjoy the former but not forget about the latter.” And one of Ron’s favorite scriptures in the Bible is; “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints” (Psalms 116:15). Ron would say, “Don’t stand over my grave and weep, for I am not dead, I do not sleep, I am more alive than I have ever been.”
Please, my friends and family, take advantage of this free gift of salvation; just repent (act of faith), be baptized in Jesus Name (Bible command), and receive the Lord’s Spirit (see Acts 2:38). He was quick to say, “I am not a holy Joe, just a sinner saved by grace."
