William Lloyd McKnight (Payton), age 48, of Saint Peters, Missouri passed away on Sunday, September 27, 2020. He was born in Saint Louis, Missouri on September 29, 1971 to William and Leisa Payton (nee Wheat).
Billy's best achievements were having his 2 beautiful children Justice, Alesia and grandson Valrick. Billy drove me crazy with his wild and dangerous things he did such as setting up ramps for his bike. He could have been the next Evel Knievel. I worried so much about him getting hurt. As his mother, I did not always see eye to eye with Billy but we loved each other dearly. Billy always wanted to do what he wanted to do but as his mother I understood his reasons.
William is survived by his mother, Leisa Lee (William) Holland; his children Justice W. Barber and Alesia Rose Barber; his grandson, Valrick M. Fullins III, his sisters, Lisa M. (Scott) Schroer, Lori Goad, Tahlia Kanchanamusika, and Jennifer (Shane) Bondank-Tripp, and his friend, Espeeny S. (Mike) Huffman. He will be dearly missed by many other family members and friends.
He was preceded in death by his father, Mark David Bondank.
Visitation will be from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm with a service to follow at 7:00 pm both on Monday, October 5, 2020 at Newcomer Cremations, Funerals & Receptions, 837 Mid Rivers Mall Drive, St. Peters, Missouri 63376. Interment will be private.
