Joseph Herman “Goppy” Knight, 64, passed away on April 18, 2019. Goppy retired after 32 years of service from Evonik Chemical in Theodore AL, as a maintenance supervisor. He may have retired but never lost his supervisory skills. He enjoyed cooking and having friends over to eat and talk. Mostly he enjoyed the talking more than the eating. He always seemed to think the ones helping cook could not do the job without him giving direct orders. His delicious meal was eventually cooked and served to any and all starving guest. He ENJOYED TALKING the most so his meals turned into all day affairs.

Goppy’s Enviroment was incased overlooking a pond, wonderful wildlife, beautiful sun rises. A place of tranquility one wishes to spend many days enjoying this God Given Beauty.

Goppy loved all his family and friends especially his only granddaughter Khole, she was the light of his life. He left us way too soon and will be sadly missed by all his family and friends.
