William Robert Knapp

William was born on December 20th 1955 in Buffalo, New York.  He is survived by his wife Melanie and two daughters, Gabrielle and Cassandra.  William was an avid motorcyclist, loved the outdoors, surfing, fishing, and hiking the Great Smoky Mountains.  He was an exceptional family man who would do anything for his girls.  William had a smile that would light up a room and could make anyone laugh.  He was always there for his wife and daughters and had the greatest advice.  On the worst days, one sentence from him would make everything all better.  William went to Heaven on August 13, 2020.  He had the kindest soul, was so very loved and will be sorely missed.  Bye for now, Dad.  


Service with family and friends for William’s life will be held at a later date.
