Vick Knibbs-Dawes

Vick Knibbs-Dawes, 51, passed away suddenly on October 16, 2022. 

From your wife, Jennifer:

In 2013, John Legend released his song, “All of Me” which I think encapsulates our love. When we married in 2002, you said “I love you, warts and all” which wasn’t a Grammy award winning song lyric for sure; Mr. Legend was just more eloquent. But you encouraged me to be me, exactly as I was, warts and all with complete and total acceptance and honesty. If you likedsomeone, you would do anything for them, whatever it was they wanted or needed. If you didn’tlike someone, well, they could piss off. You were romantic, but also tremendously silly and fun. I will always remember your loyalty and fierce protection. You were so thoughtful, and I know that you bent over backwards for me and anyone who simply asked for your time. You were a good soul. 

You were preceded in death by Victor John Knibbs, your father, and Barbara Vicknair, your mother in law. I hope they were there to greet you with love. As I hope you will be there to greet all of us, when it is our time, too. And I hope you and Mom have now settled the argument over the damn pork chop. 

You are survived by George and Sheila, your Dad and Mum. Tracy, your first wife and Jessica, your daughter, and Mia and Arabella, your granddaughters. Karen, your sister and Ed, your brother in law, and Hannah, your niece. They loved you so. 

You are survived by my family, who loved you intensely, too. Steve, your father in law. Brian and David, your brother in laws. Kelle and Alana, your sister in law and niece. Patrick and Brian, your nephews. Elle, your sister in law, and Ansley, Katon, Samantha and Nicole, your nieces. 

You are also survived by the many friends you made in your life who will miss you terribly. I think of Arrun, Neil, Simon and many more from your days in England and the friends you made during the 25 years you were here in Georgia.  I know they meant a lot to you, as you did to them. 

You are, and always will be the love of my life, Babe. I had 22 years with you and had hoped for many more. I love you with everything I am. You are alive in my heart, my soul. 

Your Boo. 

From your sister, Karen:

Vick was born in June 1971 and his early years were spent in a suburb of London, where he spent all of his childhood. He was a mischievous child always in a scrape or two who found school difficult and he left when he was 16.  His tales (read lies) were legendary and believable only to mum…. The rest of us were amazed at how gullible his mother could be, indeed if he had told her that he had won $1M….. she would have believed him. He also developed a taste for strong Spanish onions….which were dished out as punishment by his mum for swearing….. he actually mocked her until she changed the punishment for dish soap….. these days this would be called child abuse!!

One of my most recent fondest and funniest memories of Vick was back in 2017 when him and Jenn came to visit us in the UK. He had complained (as only Vick can) that he never could get a decent hot curry in America. So we took him to our favourite Indian restaurant where we live……he ordered the hottest Vindaloo and then told the waiter to make it extra hot….. when it came, he took two mouthfuls before he went the colour of Santa Claus’s coat and began to sweat profusely. I remember asking him if he was ok, he couldn’t speak but nodded and to his credit, finished the dish off…… the waiters still remember this every time we eat there.

Our last conversation was two days before he passed, he was very positive and thankful to his two co-workers who saved his life on 26th September. He was looking forward to heading back to work. 

We as a family, would like to extend our thanks to those two angels, for giving us the extra time we had with him….. thank you. 

Your sister.
