Founder, Ralph M. Knight Jr. in front of his new blue hearse.  Now the standard color for the company's fleet, this was the first hearse in the state that wasn't black or gray.

T he Knight Funeral Homes have been serving area families for three generations.  The company was originally founded in 1942, by Ralph M. Knight Jr.  In 1957, after purchasing land from the Kennedy family, the funeral home in Windsor moved from the 38 Ascutney Street site to its current location on the picturesque shore of Kennedy Pond.  In 1964, Ralph Knight purchased the Powers Funeral Home on Gates Street in White River Junction.
     Several years later in 1980, Ralph M Knight Jr. sold the business to two of his sons, Ralph M. Knight III and Russell C. Knight.  To better serve the area, the White River Junction location was moved in 1985 from the original 34 Gates Street location to its current location on Hartford Avenue , at the site of the former Dulac’s Garage.  In 1987, a crematory was added in White River Jct. In 2004, Jeff Knight, the son of Ralph M Knight III purchased the Knight Funeral Homes and has continued to serve those in the Upper Valley area with the same commitment to caring as previous generations have.
