Julian Jordan “Danny” Kight Sr. passed away on December 2, 2021 after a very long battle with Alzheimer’s.

Danny graduated from Savannah High School in 1955, Armstrong Junior College in 1957, & Clemson University in 1962. He went on to become a State Farm Insurance Agent for over forty years. He also built several homes at the Landings and built the first office condominium complex, Waters Professional Square, in Savannah.

Danny loved the Lord with all his heart. He served as a deacon at Bull Street Church of Christ. He was a founding member, deacon, & first treasurer of the Central Church of Christ. The children at church knew Danny as "the candy man" because he always had a pocketful of Smarties to give out.

Danny was very involved in his children's activities. He helped organize the first swim team at the Landings & the publishing of the first football program at Calvary Day School. He also loved playing golf & cheering on his Clemson Tigers. 

Danny is survived by his wife of 58 years, Patty Nunnally Kight; his two children, Jay (Cindy) Kight and Krista (Marc) Jackson. He was affectionately known as "Poppy" to his five grandchildren, Malloree (Jordan) Gray, Lindsey (Will) O’Shaughnessey, Taylor (Alayna) Morgan, Jordan Kight, & Isabella Jackson; and five great grandchildren.

Visitation will be held Sunday from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel.

I am so very, very sorry to hear of Danny's passing. I am the oldest of Floyd Curry's children and one of Danny's first cousins. He and I were very close as young children and my very first memory as a very young child was being g pulled through the snow on a sled by Danny. Your family is on my heart and in my prayers.
