Thomas A Knott passed away on March 14, 2024 at the age of 83. He was at home surrounded by family, as he wished. Born March 13, 1941 in Elizabeth, New Jersey. He was the son of Thomas F and Anna Knott.

Tom lived in Rahway, NJ and attended Rahway High School. He enjoyed a lengthy career in the electrical supply industry culminating in 1984 with becoming the owner and President of SPT Electric Supply, headquartered in Bridgewater, New Jersey. Upon retirement he enjoyed living in Marco Island, Florida with vacation homes in Long Beach Island, New Jersey and Hiawassee, Georgia. Recently Tom and Cheryl moved to Naples, Florida.

He enjoyed fishing and golfing. He was a member of United Church of Marco Island and Hiawassee United Methodist Church. Tom loved meeting people – he never met a stranger. He also loved sharing his faith in Christ. Tom was passionate about his many adopted retired racing greyhounds.

When Tom was young, his mother nicknamed him Timmy because there were so many men named Tom in the family. This bible verse from 2nd Timothy describes him well:

2nd Timothy, Ch4, V7 – “He fought the good fight, finished the race and kept the faith.”
