Sarnia chief always put firefighters first
By Daniela SIMUNAC, Sun Media, Sun., September 30, 2007
A 34-year veteran firefighter, James David KNIGHT climbed many ladders, becoming chief of the Sarnia fire department in 1987.
He died September 15, surrounded by family and Friends, at 70.
His death, as with many career firefighters, was recognized by Ontario's Workplace Safety and Insurance Board as a line-of-duty death resulting from an occupational disease.
"The fire department meant everything to him," said Tom MARSHALL, public education officer with the Sarnia department. "He loved his career as a firefighter. He loved his fire department."
KNIGHT had retired five years ago, but his presence was still felt at the firehouse.
Friendly and outgoing, he was known to everyone at the station, MARSHALL said. "He was a hard man not to know."
KNIGHT's love of his work was so strong, it inspired his son Dave KNIGHT to follow in his father's footsteps.
"He really wanted to help people," Dave KNIGHT said. "It's just the type of person he was."
An avid golfer and curler, KNIGHT always encouraged fellow firefighters to get physically active.
He was concerned about their health because of the strenuous nature of the job, and always wanted them to be in top condition
"He always put the guys first," his son said. "He was good to them and they were good to him."
The community-oriented KNIGHT enjoyed serving as the marshal in Canada Day parades and setting off the fireworks, the younger KNIGHT said.
He worked as a fire consultant at the Bruce nuclear plant for two years after retiring.
Married in 1961, KNIGHT was predeceased by wife Patricia.
He was the father of three children and grandfather of four.
"He was just a great guy," MARSHALL said.
"He'll be missed."

ALLEN, Raymond William
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Raymond William ALLEN on Sunday, November 18, 2007 at Oakville Trafalgar Hospital at the age of 79. Ray was known to all as someone who loved great company and the festivities that went along with it. Never one to turn down a chance to share a drink and some laughs with family and Friends, he welcomed all who dropped by. Ray worked many years for Canada Packers and later for Quality Meat Packers as the Purchasing Manager. His various co-workers meant a lot to him and always spoke fondly of the relationships he formed over the years. As an avid boat lover, Ray spent many happy days tending to his various wooden Chris Craft cruisers and watching the goings on at the Marina. For someone who couldn't swim he always loved the water and dreamed of the next boat he might have. Apart from boats, cars were his next love. You never saw a bigger smile on his face then when he was looking at a freshly washed Cadillac parked in his driveway or cruising down the road. Although hampered by poor hearing, it never stopped him showing his quick wit and much love for his family and good Friends. He always very kind and ensured everyone was taken care of. After living in Etobicoke most of their lives, Ray and Jessie were residents of the Regency Retirement home in Port Credit for the past 5 years. Ray caught the eye of several of the staff, other residents, and people in the community. Ray greatly appreciated everyone's effort and Friendship. A life time of memories are treasured by his beloved Jessie, who was always by his side, his children and their spouses, Lorne and Regina ALLEN, Gord and Linda ALLEN, Trish and Allan KNIGHT. He will be missed by his six grandchildren, Kristen ALLEN, Jennifer SAINT_DENIS, Stephen ALLEN, Gord ALLEN, Jacqueline PEPPER, Cody KNIGHT and four great-grandchildren, Hayley PEPPER, Tricia ALLEN, Benjamin and Brandon SAINT_DENIS. A memorial service and gathering of family and Friends will be held on Sunday, November 25th from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Port Credit Yacht Club, located at 115 Lakefront Promenade, Mississauga (E. of Cawthra) 905-278-5578.
