Brian Anthony Knighton

July 15, 2022


It is with great sadness I announce the passing of our "Brother, Son, Father, Cousin, Uncle, Nephew, Grandpa, and Friend.”

Brian Anthony Knighton Age 54 born November 22, 1967 to the late Doraletha "Tutti" Knighton and John Lee Vaught; was unexpectedly taken from us on June 15th, 2022.  Brian was born and raised in Hartford Connecticut. He loved his family, good food, and R&B music. He enjoyed being around his grandmother affectionately known as “MAMA.” Brian was filled with the love and values instilled by his grandmother; the late Mrs. Cenillia "MaMa" Knighton. 

Brian is preceded by his mother Doraletha Knighton, his older brother Gregory Knighton, both his maternal grandparents Cecilia and James Knighton, his uncle Willie and his wife Ziity Knighton, and his uncle Walter Knighton. 

Brain,  David (”Butta”), and Curtis Knighton were more like brothers, not just first cousins. Brian loved working and enjoyed making people around him smile, telling jokes, and singing.
