J.L. Knight developed the knack to make a dollar at a young age.
When he was in high school, he sold candy and chewing gum to classmates and other students. Through the years, those who knew him best said he was a hard worker who made it a point to treat people fairly.
Knight, who was in the service station business more than 50 years in Lancaster, died Friday. He was 85.
Knight’s brother, H.N., said he carried the appearance and mindset of a businessman ever since he was a teenager.
