We send our sympathies to the Knight family from the Slater's, Steve, Reverend Judi, Fred, Drew and Tim. My father. Fred, son Drew, brother, Tim and myself have all worked with Bob many times as a "trademan" and supplier of many of our funeral home needs.  My wife, Reverend Judi Slater, has worked funerals with Bob for families from our church when he would "cover" for the Gracan's and at the Wojciechowski Funeral Home in Glassport.  He will be missed by all the people he "touched".  Bob was a true professional and all around "good Guy"!  Steve Slater.

Heartfelt sympathies to the Knight family. Bob was always a true professional in the funeral industry. Forever trying to lend a helpful hand or word of advise. Even though I never met his family, I have felt like I knew them, because Bob always talked about you all. He truly loved his family. I will always think of Bob when I hear UNC or June 26. It has been an honor to have Bob as a friend and colleague.    John McCabe

Our family is so sorry to hear about Bob.  He was a great friend, father and husband.  Our whole family is on vacation.  We are sending our warm distant hugs to your family.  He is now in God's loving arms.

I am saddened to hear that Bob has passed away.  He was a "good guy" in a world where you do not have many anymore.  I always enjoy talking to him when he stopped by at one of the local funeral homes I was working for, and then later at the funeral home I purchased.  I know he enjoyed being a ref and to see the kids grow up right in front of him.  See you on the other side Bob!
