The River City Blaskapelle will be playing during the luncheon. “Howie” was an active part of that band and could be seen around town and at events with his trusty bugle. 
“I loved sitting next to Howie and driving him to gigs, we all miss him a lot,” said fellow River City band member Karen Wachholz.

Pat Otten and Mark Kandel from the River City Blaskapelle wrote, “Howard Knox has been a performing member of the River City Blaskapelle since our formation in 1986.  He played the Trumpet and the Peck horn.  Howie contributed countless hours of his talents over the years, but even more important than his dedication was his friendship.  He touched the lives of everyone in our group and we know we speak for every member when we say his friendship enriched our lives and our organization.  The Blaskapelle will go on without Howie but it will never be quite the same.”

Private burial services were held.   Knox is buried in a cemetery in Whitewater next to his wife Pearl.
