We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Boyer & Cool Home for Funerals
Scott Andrew Knowles left this earthly life on June 18, 2022 after a long battle with COPD. He was born on July 17, 1954, to Willis and Jeanette (nee Johnson) Knowles in Genoa. Scott graduated from Lorain High School in 1972. He was an industrial painter and sand blaster for Cleveland Corrosion Control for many years.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 46 years Carole (nee Donofrio), his three daughters Allison (Kevin) Bubanas of Westlake, Lindsay (Dr. Darrin) Bunting of Amherst and Lauren (Dean) Johnson of Lorain, six cherished grandchildren Marina, Jade, Christian, Nolan, Roma, and Isla, brother John (Nikki) Knowles of Chicago, IL, sister Anne (Tom) Kramer of Lorain and a former son in law, Joe Michalewicz.
He was preceded in death by his parents, and two sisters Sidney Dengerd and Amy Funk and His beloved mother-in-law Dorothy Donofrio and father-in-law Brenne Donofrio.
Scott was a handyman and carpenter extraordinaire. He had a great insight into construction and the design of his projects. A very dedicated father who would do everything and anything for his girls; Including building an elaborate playhouse for them in their Vermilion Riverfront home in Wakeman. He fondly enjoyed watching his girls play soccer at a high level. And he always led with his steadfast “no” answer, even though his heart wanted to say yes to his girls request. His loving and protective ways will always be remembered and has left us with a lifetime of knowledge and carefully thought out advice. His humor and peculiar ways of wanting his coffee and snacks prepared will be missed. He loved his girls with all of his heart, and with Carole they did everything possible to make the girls life fulfilled. His most treasured memories were summer vacations on Kelleys Island, bantering and enjoying coffee with his dear friends, and having all the grandkids laughing and running through the house.
At Scott’s request there will only be private family services.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the American Lung Association, 5755 Granger Road, Suite 905, Independence, Ohio 44131, lung.org, to support their ongoing lung disease research, or to The Hospice of Western Reserve, 17876 St. Clair Ave.,Cleveland, Ohio 44110, hospicewr.org, whom the family wishes to acknowledge for their tender and gracious care of Scott, and of them, at the end of his life.
