Obituary of Leroy P Knoll
Leroy P. Knoll, 90, passed away on Wednesday, April 19, 2023. Loving husband to the late Patricia Knoll, Leroy was born October 30, 1932, to the late Clarence and Josephine Kuhn Knoll in Penokee, Kansas. He was a proud veteran of the United States Air Force as well as a member of the American Legion. Leroy grew up on the farmland of St. Peter Kansas until the age of 21 when he enlisted in the Air Force. This is where he and Patricia met and were married for 52 years. He was an accountant by trade with Singer Sewing Machines where he traveled weekly for 16 years. Although he has since been retired for many years, he lives his life numerically through time and figures. He kept a tight schedule every day and followed his own rules exactly. He liked what he liked and if he didn’t you were promptly notified. He was adored by his family, coworkers, and neighbors. You would always get his very best no matter who you were to him. He loved spending time playing games on his computer, caring for his cats, doing laundry (yes laundry) and meal time. He always enjoyed his desserts, especially cherry pie, ice cream and he always had a drawer full of candy at his desk. He was so proud of the accomplishments of his entire family and would always ask about everyone whenever you saw him. His life was full of many riches. His family feels so fortunate to have such a loving, caring and devoted father that we will cherish forever.
Leroy is survived by his daughters, Lee Ann (Richard) Jones of Frankfort, Kara (Anthony) Reynolds of Lexington, and Teresa (Scott) Darnell of Shelbyville; a sister, Alice Ruder of Hill City, KS; his grandchildren, Emily Darnell, Kelly Darnell, David (Moe) Jones, and Adam (Sydney) Jones; and his great grandchildren, August Jones, Abram Jones, Oakley Jones, Paul Jones, and Van Jones.
In addition to his wife of 52 years, Patricia Knoll, Leroy was preceded in death by his parents, Clarence and Josephine Kuhn Knoll, and a daughter, Susan Knoll.
