He was born on August 27, 1929 in Jamestown, ND to Archie McKnight, Sr. and Hazel (Orr) McKnight. He went as far as eighth grade and had to put up with bullies just as they do now. It was during the depression so he had to work on the farm. Later he married Arlene Jones in Wadena, MN. They had two children Doug and Brad. In 1956 they moved to Spokane. Mick got a job at the Inland Empire Paper Co where his fellow coworkers nicknamed him "Wheels". He loved music and played his guitar. He also enjoyed going camping to relax. He had a Goldwing motorcycle and liked taking trips. Mick married Josephine Castle in 1979 and together they attended Christian churches for a number of years. He is survived by his brother Donald McKnight of Post Falls, ID; sons Doug and Brad McKnight of Spokane; six of Josephine's children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren; four grandchildren from Doug and Brad; great-grandchildren; nephews and nieces.
