The family of Mr. Jeffrey Paul Knowlton, a US Army Veteran, requests the presence and participation of the San Antonio Patriot Guard Riders at the services, LEO supported procession, and graveside rendering of military honors of their loved one.

Jeffrey (Jeff) Paul Knowlton, 72, passed away on Saturday, June 29, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas. Jeffrey was born July 4, 1946 in Lincoln, Maine to Frances McCloskey and Byron Knowlton. Jeffrey was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Alan R. Knowlton. He is survived by his wife, Ruth E. Knowlton; sons, Rev. John B. Knowlton (Tricia), and Dr. Christopher M. Knowlton (Brooke); grandchildren, David Jeffrey Knowlton, and Jude Alexander Knowlton; brothers, Stuart J. Knowlton (Marian), Byron A. Knowlton II (Cindy), and Maj. Patrick J. Knowlton (Maria); as well as numerous cousins, and nieces and nephews.
Jeffrey served in Vietnam and since he was injured, he was honorably discharged as a Captain. He wanted to make the Army a career but after his second injury the FAA grounded him. Since he couldn’t fly, he was then honorably discharged. He was asked later to come back as a flight instructor, but declined. He entered the Army March 16, 1966 and was discharged September 6, 1973 after multiple injuries, including being shot down behind enemy lines for a week.
