Knox Peterson Schwarz


Our sweet boy will always be blond, beautiful, and bright. He will always be his mama’s best friend and his daddy’s shadow. We’ll remember him splashing water in the tub with his sister, and launching himself at his big brother with one of his epic hugs, his arms spread wide like a jumbo jet. He was generous with those hugs, and kisses too, whether the recipient was an aunt or uncle or the unsuspecting and generally unwilling family dog. He charmed strangers with his cherubic looks, but it was the sweet, slow drawl of his “Bye” that really hooked them. He liked to have the soft pads of his feet tickled. He loved the outdoors and running water and big trucks. Nobody has ever been more excited to encounter a sanitation truck. He slept in his car seat with his little arms folded behind his head like a beach bum in Cabo. He was a boy of few words, but when he chose your shoulder as a nook for his weary head, or scooted himself onto your lap with a book to read, it spoke volumes. He will always be loved. Please help us share that love and spread his joy. #BeLikeKnox
