The Moab Chamber of Commerce honored the late Don Knowles with the Citizen of the Year Award for 2019 during its annual banquet in November. A further tribute to Knowles happened at a luncheon Dec. 17.

His five children and numerous grandchildren were in attendance to celebrate the honor, presented by Laici Shumway. Knowles was fondly remembered for being a cornerstone of the business community since the early 1960s, supporting Moab and its growth until the time of his death earlier this year.

Knowles had a keen business mind, valued his customers and employees, and made a point to do business with people who did business with him.
