In Memoriam: Bob Knox and Bill Rosenfeld

Eddie Knox, GJA past president let us know last week of the passing of his father, Robert “Bob” Knox on December 19, 2020. Bob served as president many decades ago and Eddie as president just about a decade ago. Bob was 89 years old and passed away after months of challenging health issues. Bob and his wife of over 50 years, Fran, had been residing in Big Canoe in North Georgia the last couple of years. Father and son ran Knox Jewelers in Sandy Springs together until Bob stepped away from the business, leaving the day to day management to Eddie and his wife Natasha. While it has been many years since Bob has participated in GJA, I know there are many members who have industry memories with Bob and remember him fondly.

This weekend, we received word of the untimely passing of William “Bill ” Rosenfeld. Bill was GJA president from 2014 – 2016 and served on the board for many years rising up through the ranks and then serving on the past presidents committee to help advise the incoming board members. Bill always had a smile for everyone when he walked in the room and usually had his beautiful wife Carmen, on his arm at every GJA convention. Besides running Rosenfeld Jewelry LTD in Tucker, Bill was a giant in the Tucker business community and served as a councilman on the Tucker city council. He had lots of friends in his Rotary and just as many that he enjoyed playing golf with. Recently, we’ve all enjoyed watching Bill’s barbequing expertise grow on social media. Bill had a past life as a paramedic and served with the Dekalb County Fire and Rescue before those of us in the jewelry industry had the pleasure of working with Bill and getting to know him. GJA and many in the Atlanta area will miss him and mourn him with Carmen and his family and his staff.
