Richard F. Knobloch- Watertown, NY
September 1, 1959 to November 28, 2021
He graduated from South Jefferson High School in June 1979. He worked at various jobs. He enjoyed the outdoor life communing with God in His creation by taking nature walks, fishing, hunting, trapping and especially beekeeping and bee extracting. But, his greatest joy was serving his Saviour by sharing the gospel with others as he did not want anyone to spend an eternity in hell. He understood God’s word that there is absolutely no way that anyone can enter into heaven unless they believe by faith that Jesus took the punishment for all of everyone’s sin &dying on the cross, asking Jesus to forgive you of all of your sins and save you. Jesus is a loving God but, also a just God and will not allow sin into heaven. Anyone that rejects Jesus will not be allowed into heaven. Ephesians 2:8+9 states: “For by grace are ye saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works lest any man should boast.” Richard asked Jesus to forgive him of his sins and save him, back in the 1970’s.
Richard is survived by his brother Terry (and wife Gwen) Knoblock, his sister, Elizabeth (husband Bernard Ward) Creighton-Ward, his niece Christina Delello (Knobloch), nephew’s Matthew Creighton, Benjamin Creighton, and niece Sarah Creighton.
