…brothers and sisters,
we don’t want you to be ignorant
about those who have died.
We don’t want you to grieve
like other people who have no hope

WILMOT RECEIVED THE BREATH OF LIFE FROMGOD ON JANUARY 10, 1926, IN THE TOWN OF PLEASANT VALLEY, CLARENDON, JAMAICA. ON SEPTEMBER 03, 2017, HIS BREATH WAS RETURNED TO GOD, IN THE TOWN OF WINTER GARDEN, FLORIDA. HE SOJOURNED ON THE EARTH 21 YEARS PAST THE THREE SCORE AND 10 YEARS GOD HAD ASCRIBED TO HIM.

HE WAS THE 9TH OF 11 CHILDREN, (one of whom, died as an infant), BORN TO EDWARD KNIGHT, HIS FATHER, WHO WAS A FARMER AND ADINA KNIGHT, HIS MOTHER,WHO WAS A HOME MAKER.

WILMOT WAS PASSIONATE ABOUT LIVING A HEALTHY GOD-FEARING LIFE. HE ENDEAVORED TO MAINTAIN A DIET HE BELIEVED GOD HAD DESIGNED FOR US ALL. HE USED TO ALWAYS SAY, ”…YOU GOTTA EAT SOME BUSH…,” MEANING, YOU HAVE TO EAT YOUR GREENS, WHATEVER THEY MIGHT BE. HE LOVED OKRA…WOULD HAVE IT AS A SIDE DISHWITH EVERY MEAL. HE WOULD HAVE IT WITH CEREAL, IF IT WAS AVAILABLE. HE ALSO LOVED TO EAT ALL KINDS OF CITRUS FRUITS…ORANGES, GRAPEFRUIT, TANGERINE…. “ITS GOOD FOR THE STOMACH,” HE SAID, “…WILL CLEAN YOU OUT,WON’T NEED A DOCTOR. YOUR BODY IS A TEMPLE OF GOD,WE MUST TREASURE IT.” HE BELIEVED MAINTAINING A HEALTHY BODY WAS GIVING PRAISE TO GOD, SO HE TRIED TO EAT AS NATURALLY AND AS SIMPLY AS HE COULD.

HE BELIEVED THAT THE WORD OF GOD AS GIVEN BY THE BIBLE IS THE GUIDE TO A CHRISTIAN LIFE AND THE PATH TO ETERNAL SALVATION. HE ENCOURAGED EVERYONE TO LIVE BY THE WORD OF GOD SO THAT ALL WOULD ENJOY ETERNAL LIFE WHEN GOD RETURNS FOR HIS PEOPLE.

HE LEAVES BEHIND A LARGE NUMBER OF FAMILY MEMBERS, INCLUDING HIS WIFE OF 71 YEARS. HIS CHILDREN… GRAND CHILDREN… GREAT GRAND CHILDREN… GREAT GREAT GRAND CHILDREN… SIBLINGS… MANY COUSINS… NEICES AND NEPHEWS. HE WILL BE MISSED, BUT, THERE WILL BE NO HEAVY HEARTS, EVEN IF WE SHED TEARS, BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW HE DIED IN CHRIST AND THEREFORE WE HAVE “THAT HOPE,” THAT WE WILL SEE HIM AGAIN IN THE WORLD MADE NEW, WHERE THERE WILL BE NO DEATH, NO SADNESS, NO TEARS NO SORROW OR CRYING…” PRAISE BE TO GOD FOR A SOUL SAVED!
