Roy Knotts Obituary

Roy Clarence Knotts, 75, of Tunnelton, WV, passed quietly at his home on November 26, 2023, with his family by his side. Born December 9, 1947, the son of the late Clarence Harrison and Mary Lois (Himelrick) Knotts. He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Dolly Marie (Bolyard) Knotts; sons, Keith (Beth) Knotts of Blacksville, WV and Bruce (Melissa) Knotts of Flemington, WV; and daughter, Carole (John) Bartholow of Fairmont, WV; seven grandchildren, Collin and Connor Knotts; Audra, Brylee, and Corbin Knotts; Kierra and Tanner Bartholow. Additionally, a brother, Delbert “Mike” Knotts and a sister, Linda Martin; sisters-in-law, Kathy Bodkins and Tammy Knotts; many nieces, nephews and cousins; good friend Sonny Simons, and his furry friend Suzie Q. Roy was a lifelong resident of Laurel Mountain. He worked most of his life as a coal miner, construction worker and security guard. Most importantly, he spent his life as a husband, father and grandfather, teaching his children/grandchildren the value of a good education, being self-sufficient, and having a strong work ethic. His passing will leave a void within the hearts of his family that cannot be filled. In addition to his parents, Roy was also preceded in death by a brother, Robert “Bob” Knotts. The family would like to thank WV Caring and their incredible staff for the wonderful care given to Roy during the final year of his life. Special thanks to Bethany, Dena and Jeanette.
