It is with great sadness that we report the untimely death of Colonel Thomas J. McKnight, USMCR (Ret).
Tom slipped on the ice coating his steps and fell on Friday evening, rupturing his spleen, breaking two ribs, and fracturing two vertebrae. A few hours after the surgeon removed his spleen, Tom became unstable and went into cardiac arrest. From there on things went downhill and he died Saturday.
Carol and the family have asked for time to absorb their loss and grieve. Plans call for Tom to be cremated and interred at Quantico National Cemetery with full military honors. When plans are finalized, we will let you know.
While the family requests privacy, sending your condolences to Carol and the family is appropriate. Please address them to:
Mrs. Thomas J. McKnight

Gents, once again we have lost a beloved broth, one of our finest. May he rest in peace!
