Charles William “Bill” Knott, Sr., 70, of Hollywood, MD was born on December 27, 1948 to parents, John Richard Knott, Sr. and late mother Virginia Pilkerton Knott (d. 2010). Bill passed away on September 24, 2019 in Hollywood, MD in his home surrounded by his loving family.

He is survived by siblings Linda Swarey, “Johnny” John Richard Knott, Jr. (Donna), Darlene Knott Ridgell, and “Terry” Terrence Wayne Knott (Donna). Bill took incredible pride in his children, Shawn Knott (Susan) Hollywood, MD, Kimberly Knott-Barham (William) of California, MD, Charles William “Billy” Knott, Jr. (Gina) of Hollywood, MD and Crystal Knott-Gorman (Dee) of Great Mills, MD, 11 grandchildren (Bridget, Daniel, Derrick, Wyatt, Makenzie, Makylah, Alexia, Damaree, Jordan, Dezmond and Calyssa) and 3 great grandchildren (Addison, Dayton and Landon).

Bill was employed by the United States Government by the Architect of the Capitol in Washington D.C., where he was a painter and supervisor. He was well known for his keen eye for detail and meticulous quality of work when it came to painting. He retired after 30 years of service (1975-2005) and devoted much of his time to helping others, working on the family farm, spending time maintaining the grounds and up keep of Sotterley Plantation and dedicating himself to Faith Bible Church in Mechanicsville, MD, where he was always known for his tireless work ethic, unrelenting commitment to his family, and his incredible faith in God. Bill took great pride in being a member of the congregation and an active member of the Celebrate Recovery Program.

Johnny, Darlene, and family. Very sorry to hear of Bill's passing. He was a heck of a guy. Very easy going and fun-loving. I still remember the night that he, Leonard, and myself turned the goat loose in Flug Norris's tavern. I know he will be missed.
