GLENS FALLS — David W. Titterington, 59, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, May 12, 2012, at his home. David was more commonly known as “Rick Knight” from the Knight in the Morning show on Q101.7 in Glens Falls. He was a longtime and well-known local radio broadcaster and had many loyal and devoted radio fans in and around Glens Falls.

He was in the broadcasting business for more than 40 years.

When not working, David played guitar in a local band, The Bodells, and was a loyal fan of the Beatles. He was also an avid motorcyclist and owned both Honda and Harley Davidson motorcycles.

Survivors include his brother, Daniel Titterington and his wife, Linda, of Queensbury and their children, Maura and Patrick; his sister, Donna Lukach and her husband, John, of Shrewsbury, Mass., and their children, Michael and Kristina; and his very dear and special friend, Nancy (Rockwell) Murphy of Glens Falls.

    I am heartbroken to learn of Rick's sudden passing. I say "Rick" because that's how I knew him best - as Rick Knight - a first class, talented radio guy and a great guy in general. We worked together co-hosting morning shows in Glens Falls during the late 80s and early 90s, first at the old WAYI and then at 100.5 WKBE when it first went on the air.

    We had an awful lot of fun, and I will always I look back on those times with a smile. Rick was one of the truly good people in a business that has too few. I regret that we hadn't met up for a couple of years, and it serves as a lesson to all to stay in touch with those you care about. Life can be unpredictable and cruel. Rick was much too young. RIP my friend.

    My sincerest condolences to his family.
