Mr Knight who grew up in Cambridge moved to Shoebury 18 months before his death, on November 24.
His 51-year-old father Ron, said: “Cambridge and Southend have lost one of their young princes.
“It is nearly the first anniversary and you do not really ever get over these things but we are moving on.
“He was hard working, industrious and considered by many to be a very good friend.
“We had a beautiful life together. He was a really good friend and an amazing grandson, my father doted on him.”Oh dear! So how did this ‘young prince’ meet his untimely fate?
A toxicology report found that the cyclist, who had no brakes on his fixed-wheel bike, had a blood alcohol level of 107mg of alcohol, over the 80mg drink-driving limit, and traces of cannabis in his system.*sighs*
