WEBSTER, NY (WROC) — The Webster community will mourn the death of a boy who passed away last week after a battling Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Owen Knight passed away last Saturday at the age of 15. A celebration of life will be held from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday at the American Legion Post 942 Cottreall-Warner at 818 Ridge Road in Webster.
For his 15th birthday, the Webster community came together to make sure Owen’s day was extra special. Last October, after his aunt posted on Facebook asking people to send in cards for Owen, the teen was surprised with a parade, featuring firefighters and police, at Webster Thomas High School.
