The Ware Planning Board Remembers
 Joe Knight

Joseph Charles Knight (November 23, 1977 - July 9, 2022) was a life long resident of Ware and a member of the Planning Board for 9 years. Joe was usually seen helping out on his family farm, riding his four wheeler, enjoying the outdoors, and spending time with family and friends. Joe Knight had worked for Aerus Electrolux since 1997 and was a franchise owner for most of that time. He is survived by his wife of 20 years Jennifer, their children Lilly and Charlie, his mother Kathy, and several relatives.

As a Planning Board Member, Joe brought extensive knowledge of agriculture to the Board as he grew up in a farming family. He was an advocate for forest management, environmental protection, and protection of agricultural lands. Joe's agricultural background brought critical insight on permit hearings pertaining to Large-Scale Solar Projects, Earth Removal Operations, and development on former farm land. Joe passed away peacefully at his home in Ware on July 9, 2022 after a 3 year long battle with cancer and will be deeply missed.
