I would like to express my deepest sorrow for the lost of your dear loved one. the pain, grief and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. At times, we need to go to Gods word for comfort. ( 2 Corinthians 1: 3 & 4 ) The Bible helps us to understand how God and Jesus feel about death. The Bible at John 11: 35 says " Jesus gave way to fears" This was when his dear friend Lazarus died. The Bible also teaches us that God is eager to raise the dead. ( John 14: 13- 15 ) god yearns to bring the dead back to life. Isn't it heartwarming to know this? Please take your Bible and look at what it teaches about the resurrection. ( John 5: 28 & 29, Acts 24: 15 ) Yes, God really will defeat our enemy death forever. This will enable us to one day have the hope of seeing our dead loved ones again. I hope this message will be a source of comfort to you. If you have any questions feel free to contact one of Jehovah's Witnesses or log on to our website at jw.org. Sincerely yours, JW

We were raised on the farm on Renwick and Gulfton and I always called him "Big Mike" and he called me "Little Mike". I looked up to Mike and know he will be missed by Dick, Mickey, Mike, Pat and Tom Robson. God Bless you all in this difficult time. Little Mike

John Robson Kight was born on January 24, 1937 at St. Joseph Hospital in Houston, Texas. Upon birth the nun attending the delivery proclaimed that the boy looked like a “Mike.” From there, he was formally named Michael John Robson Kight. To us, he was simply known as Big Daddy, a term the grandchildren affectionately called him.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Harper Marion Kight and Dorothy Robson, his sister, Julie Kight Arnim and his brother, Harper Kight. He is survived by his wife, Dorothy Sue Isaac; his three sons and their spouses, Michael and Renee Kight; Rick and Catherine Kight; Allen and Hollianne Kight, and his nine grandchildren: Johnny, Jake, Annie, Ashley, CJ, Kristin, William, Bryan and Ellie.

Mike attended St. Thomas High School in Houston and established a lifelong network of close personal and business friends. Upon graduation, he attended The University of Texas at Austin and the University of Houston. During this time he met the love of his life, Dorothy Sue Isaac. The two were wed on November 18, 1961 at St. Anne Catholic Church. Together they enjoyed over 54 years of marriage and loving commitment to one another.

A devoted Roman Catholic, Michael was a member of St. Anne Catholic Community for over forty years and served on the St. Anne Parish Council, the St. Thomas High School Alumni and Development Board, and was a proud member of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre.

As a businessman, he devoted his career to the printing industry. He owned several Kwik-Kopy Printing franchises throughout the Houston area and served on the Kwik-Kopy Board of Directors for over a decade. A source of pride and achievement, his store on Hillcroft in southwest Houston was the top store in the nation for many years.

Dorothy and Mike lived in Houston until his retirement in 2000 when they moved to the San Bernard River in Brazoria County. Their home, known as San Bernardo, was the gathering place for family and friends for decades. A perpetual entertainer and the life of the party, Mike was at his best at the San Bernardo. As generations following him continue to gather at San Bernardo, his presence will be felt and stories of his wonderful life will be passed on. He will be greatly missed, but forever remembered.

Friends are cordially invited to a visitation with the family from six o’clock until eight o’clock in the evening on Monday, December 21, 2015 at the Bradshaw-Carter Home. The funeral service will be at half-past ten o’clock in the morning on Tuesday, December 22, 2015 at St. Anne Catholic Church, 2140 Westheimer Road in Houston, where the Rev. Jay Walsh, will be the celebrant.

In lieu of customary remembrances, and in honor of Mike’s commitment to the Catholic faith and service to others, the family requests that any memorial contributions be directed to Catholic Charities of the Archdioceses of Galveston-Houston, 2900 Louisiana, Houston, Texas 77006, 713-526-4611, www.catholiccharities.org.
