A funeral for Eric Lislie “Bubba” Knox, a 21-year-old physical therapy major at Emporia State, was held Tuesday morning at First Christian Church in Hugoton.
Knox was found dead in his apartment at The Villas, 1839 Merchant St., last week. The management at the apartment complex denied comment to The Bulletin, but President Michael Shonrock offered his condolences in a university press release Sept. 6.
“We at Emporia State are deeply saddened by Eric’s death,” Shonrock said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.”
Memorial contributions may donated to both the Hugoton Kids Club Wrestling and American Diabetes Association “in care of Garnand Funeral Home, 423 S. Main, Hugoton, KS 67951,” according to the funeral home’s obituary for Knox.
