Alex Xavier Lee Knapp October 6, 1994 – November 29, 2015 Alex Knapp left those who love him far too soon when he passed away at his home in Dillon on November 29, 2015, at the age of 21. He was born on October 6, 1994 at Barrett Memorial Hospital in Dillon to Amber (Schaible) Ingram and John Knapp. He spent the majority of his early childhood in Butte, where he excelled as a goalie in youth soccer and was a devoted and helpful big brother for his siblings. He later attended schools in Dillon, eventually moving to Argenta, where he felt truly at home surrounded by many generations of the Knapp family. Alex was rarely idle. He was a hard worker, always willing to lend a hand, but he also loved to laugh and had a unique ability to actually create fun. He spent as much time as he could on outdoor activities, working on cars and spending time with family and friends. Alex especially enjoyed the company of dogs. While in middle school, he volunteered a great deal of time at the Beaverhead County Animal Shelter. More recently he had two best friends in his own beloved dogs Tank and Thor. He is survived by his parents Amber (Schaible) Ingram of Butte, and John and Vonnie Knapp of Argenta; brothers and sisters Kaden Ingram of Heyburn, ID., Quinn Corbitt of Butte, J.R. Phillips, Tina Phillips, Lisa Phillips, Tandon Phillips and Tucker Browning; grandparents Tony Knapp and Terri MacIntosh of Argenta, Ken and Di Schaible of Dillon, Hallie Schaible of Twin Falls, ID., Matt Vanderwater of Helena and Dee Dee Vanderwater of Sunburst, Jim (Debbie) Malone; aunts and uncles Jamie (Anadell) Malone, Michelle (Jason) Smith, and Shevy McIntosh, and Marie Heinz-Ligon of Twin Falls, ID; great uncles Ted, Inky and Jessie Knapp of Argenta; cousins Daniel (Brook) Dooling of Jerome, ID., and Richard Heinz of Boise, ID., also numerous other cousins, extended family and friends. Alex was an extraordinary young man who will be remembered with enduring fondness and love by all of us who were fortunate enough to have him in our lives for this all too brief, but wonderful time. “So, we are always confident and know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight, and we are confident and satisfied to be out of the body and at home with the Lord.” (2 Corinthinians 5:6-8) Services will be at 12:00 Noon Saturday, December 5, 2015 at Prairie Bible Church, 1030 E.
