Dr. Charles W. Knoll, Fort Myers, FL left this earth to be with his Lord on Monday, May 4, 2020.

Born just weeks before the stock market crash of 1929, Charles (Charlie) spent his early years in the Great Depression and the time leading up to World War II.

He attended Flemington High School, Flemington, NJ from 1943 – 45, then moved to Fishburne Military School in Waynesboro, VA where he graduated in 1947. From 1947 to 1950 he attended the University of Maryland where he studied pre-Dental. In 1950 he entered the University of Pennsylvania Dental School, graduating in 1954. One year before graduation, he married his sweetheart, Priscilla Anne Haynes.

He enlisted in the USAF in 1954 and served two years at Forbes AFB, Topeka, KS. After service he practiced Dentistry in Parsippany, NJ until 1986. He retired to Fort Myers, FL with Priscilla. He was a member of Cypress Lake CC for 10 years, until a freak accident caused him to quit golf. His spiritual home was McGregor Baptist Church, where he accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior.

He is survived by two loving daughters, Laura Knoll Lehr (Michael) Santa Rosa Beach, FL and Sally Patricia Knoll of Ft. Myers. He was predeceased by his beautiful wife Priscilla (Pat), his parents Dr. Waldo S. & Florence S. Knoll, and his beloved brother, Edward R. Knoll.

    I’m so sorry to hear of your fathers passing. I had a feeling something wasn’t right when I was in the park and didn’t see him walking his buddy lately! They were the best neighbors I can honestly say that we ever had next door. I’m going to miss that big smile he always had. Again so sorry for your loss.

    Dear Sally and Laura,

    There aren't enough words to describe what a gentleman and kind man Charlie was. He always had that wide grin on his face, and a smile for everyone. I have many fond memories of U of P and the times that were spent with him and Pat, as well as through the years that followed. You girls made their lives complete and they were so proud of you. Keep all your happy remembrances close to your heart.

    Love and our heartfelt sympathy to you both,
    Aunt Carol and Uncle Jim

    Sally and Laura,

    We’re so terribly sorry to hear of Uncle Charlie’s passing. Our very deepest sympathies to you both.

    I have such wonderful family memories of Aunt Pat and Uncle Charlie, remember the Easter Egg hunts?!

    Sending love and prayers,
    Cindy, Dave and Dalton
