Scott Matthew McKnight

Scott Matthew McKnight, 41, of Simpsonville, went home to be with his Lord and Savior and was reunited with his Brother Eric on Friday, October 6, 2023.

Born in Toledo, OH, Scott was a son of Daniel & Rhonda McKnight.

Scott was a dedicated Father, and Son. He loved his family and would do anything for his children. He always made sure they knew how much he loved them, and how much they meant to him. He was a loving fiancé. After years of searching he finally found his soulmate and had made plans to spend their future together.

Scott was a hard worker. He served as a Superintendent at SK Builders. When you love what you do it isn’t work. He loved his coworkers dearly, many of which have become like family.

Scott had many hobbies, and skills. He could fix anything, you could call him a “Mr. Fix it”. He was an avid Hunter who loved being in the woods. He  loved sports. He loved his Ohio Buckeyes. He also played sports and was a part of the Greenville Sports League where he played softball.  He always loved the opportunity to play any sport with his friends. He was full of life, energy and was a jokester. His favorite hobby of all and what he considered therapy was riding his Harley. 

In addition to his parents, he is survived by his children, Bailey, Tenley, Arianna, and Daniel McKnight; and his fiancé, Jordan Brown and her two daughters, Bailey Reese and Adelynn; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Scott was preceded in death by his brother, Eric McKnight.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday, October 11, 2023 from 4:00 – 7:00 pm at Cannon Byrd Funeral Home – Fountain Inn, 1150 N. Main St., Fountain Inn.

    Dear Rhonda and Dan,
    I’m still in unbelief of what all has taken place!!

    I always loved talking to Scott in person or through Facebook. He was always so sweet and respectful to me.

    I always had a good laugh about the pranks he would do, especially to you Rhonda and how you would try to get him back.

    Stephen and I loved him and knew him since Mt Zion and we both will miss him greatly!

    My prayers will be with you all. Love you both!

    My wife Amy and I are so sorry for your terrible loss. I did a walk-through with Scott on Thursday, October 5. I had never met him before. While we chatted, he brought up his children several times. Our sincere condolences. May he rest in peace with Jesus.

    Dana and Amy Ashworth

  • I love you and I miss you terribly Scott

  • I miss you Daddy! We all do.😢

  • Life is really hard without you and I wished I had spent more time with you, I wish I just went to your house instead of the fall festival, I’m so sorry, I didn’t know this would happen if I went, I’m so sorry Nina, Papa, Jordan, Addy, Daniel, Bailey Kay, Bailey Reese, Ari, and other family. I didn’t know this would happen, I begged him to go to the fall festival once because it was his weekend, and I wish I never did, because now he is gone, and now everyone is so upset because of me. I feel so bad that everyone has to suffer because of me, because I wanted to go to a school event. I’m so sorry to everyone who is suffering the biggest loss of my life, I’m also sorry for everyones losses too, I feel so bad and useless right now. Again Nina, I’m so sorry, I really am

    Scott’s second oldest daughter, Tenley 🙁

  • We all miss and love you so much uncle Scott. I would do anything to talk to you one last time.
