Donald Eugene Knobl, Sr., beloved husband of Eileen Ames Knobl, met his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, face to face in His kingdom on Saturday, March 11, 2023, at 12:40 a.m.
Don was born at home in Millersburg, PA, on October 20, 1941, to the late George and Hannah Wertz Knobl.
Don was a 1959 graduate of Millersburg High School, where he played football. He graduated from Bob Jones University with bachelor’s and master’s degrees. He later earned a bachelor’s degree from Millersville University. Don proudly served his country in the Army Reserves from 1966 until 1972.
Don devoted most of his life to Christian Education and youth work, and was a well loved Bible teacher both in the classroom and adult Sunday School. He was the founding Principal of Lebanon Christian Academy in Lebanon, PA.
His main interest was his home, as he cherished his wife and patiently taught his sons to become Godly gentlemen. He will be terribly missed, and his memory will be forever revered.
In addition to his loving and devoted wife, Eileen, he is survived by three sons, Michael, Daniel, and Donald Jr.; a sister-in-law, Ivy; and a nephew, Geoff.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his only brother, George Jr., in 2003.
A private memorial service will be held at a later date.
Flowers appreciated or memorials may be made to Hampton Park Christian School, 875 State Park Rd., Greenville, SC 29609.
