Kenneth (Ken) Queppet

May 12, 1958 - September 18, 2022 Lincoln University, PA | Age 64 Loving Father, Grandfather, Brother and Friend.

Kenneth (Ken) Queppet, age 64, of Lincoln University, PA, leaves behind a legacy of warm generosity and compassion for his friends and family. Ken or Kenny as the people closest to him would know him as left us suddenly Sunday September 18th, 2022 due to health complications.

Although Ken left us all too soon the people in his life have been changed by his loyalty and true friendship.

He was a dedicated father and pop-pop always to be sure that his kids and grandkids were taken care of. If you asked Ken what the number one thing in his life that gave him joy, without hesitation he would say his two kids and their grandchildren.

His hobbies included fishing, playing guitar, learning history and listening to an array of music (lots of Bob Dylan and classic folk). You could probably find Ken on any given evening or day meeting up with a friend for a meal and deep conversation or enjoying time listening to his brother’s band play music at a local restaurant. He was well liked and a hard worker in his occupation of being in the energy business. Ken was a dedicated son and loyal brother, always willing to have a listening ear. Friends describe him as loyal, honest, funny, and forgiving. His family would describe him as extremely selfless, a best friend, and loving. You could talk to Ken about most things, but if you wanted to avoid lengthy and some might say boring tangents one would stay away from topics surrounding American history, John Adams, and the TV show MASH. Ken’s generous spirit and listening ear will be missed by many.

Born in Philadelphia, PA, he was the son of Elizabeth Dougherty Queppet of Oxford, PA and the late Robert J. Queppet.

Ken is survived by one son, Michael A. Queppet and his wife Vasilisa of Orlando, FL; one daughter, Caitlin E. Beiler and her husband Colburn of Reading, PA; three brothers, Robert Queppet of West Grove, PA, , David Queppet of Philadelphia, PA and Timothy Queppet of West Grove, PA; two sisters, Rebecca Queppet of York, PA and Mary St. George of Shillington, PA; two grandchildren, and his former wife, Sylvia Queppet.

You are invited to visit with Ken’s family and friends from 10:00 to 11:30 on Wednesday morning, September 28, 2022, at the Avon Grove Church of the Nazarene, 240 State Road, West Grove, PA. His Funeral Service will follow at 11:30. Burial will be in the New London Presbyterian Church Cemetery, 1986 Newark Road (Route 896), New London, PA.

  5. Ken was the greatest friend anyone could every hope for. I knew Ken for 49 years and over that time he never wavered, always a loyal friend and willing to help or lend an ear. I will miss his humor. In the past few years we have been swapping videos and pictures of our grandkids, he was extremely proud. Ken remembered so many events of our youth, to hear him tell it you’d travel right back to that day. He was truly one of a kind. I will miss you my greatest friend.
    Prayers and hugs to the Queppet family.

  6. I first met Ken almost 40 years ago when we worked together at The Corporation Trust Company (aka CT). He was always fun to be around and I particularly enjoyed hearing his perceptions about the Folk Icons – Bob Dylan, Eric Anderson et alia. You will be truly missed kind soul. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

  7. Ken was a true friend. We met over forty years ago at WCU living in the same dorm. I found that it wasn’t necessary to have set plans with Ken. We frequently got together on a moments notice often sharing a meal at a greasy spoon. Conversations were about typical things like sports, politics & world events, but most importantly, the people in our lives. Ken loved his family and was especially proud of his kids, Mike & Caity. He loved loved his grandchildren and often shared videos of their exploits. Ken was compassionate, kind, generous, intelligent, and he was a real hoot!

    My condolences to all his family and friends. Kenny will be truly missed!

  8. Bucky and Family,

    I’m very sorry for your loss! I can see by the responses that Ken was highly regarded and loved by many family and friends. I only met him a few times at some of your band’s performances. I could tell he was a friendly, laid back, and loyal person, always there enjoying the music and supporting the band. He will always be with you! Peace to you and your family!

  9. I have been fortunate to have had the friendship of Ken for the past five years. He was such a kind and loving soul. We spent a lot of time with my Granddaughter who was only two when we met. He came to the park with us and loved spending time with us. She called him Kenny Wenny. He shared pictures of his Michela and then when little Zayden was born he shared his pictures and videos. He was a dear dear friend to many. He cared so much for his family and friends. He was truly one of a kind. My deepest sympathy to all of his family and friends. I’m grateful to have had him for a friend. I will miss him and all of his pictures of his beautiful family. Rest peacefully Ken

  10. I will always cherish the memories of time spent with cousin Kenny. In our last conversation we talked about him coming to Illinois, for a visit. My heart breaks for the whole family, he will truly be missed. There is no doubt his love of family was strong, especially the love for his children and grandchildren. Rest in peace, Kenny… Love ya, Cuz

  11. Mr. Queppet was my Dad’s best friend, and I obviously got to know him very early on in my life. He knew my rough phases in life growing up, and he’s heard about how I’ve changed my life as I’ve grown up. The last time I saw him was at my Dad’s wedding, and I remember getting to introduce him to the woman I plan to marry. I told him about how I was soon to start at a TSA position, and how I will be moving into a house of my own in the near future. He was so ecstatic, and I can’t even explain how happy I was to hear him say how proud he is of how I’ve turned my life around these past few years. He said Jenn seemed like a real keeper, and he was happy to hear I finally found a woman I’d be happy to marry. No matter what I was going through, Mr. Queppet never gave up hope on me. I’ll miss the times I got to spend just talking with him, and sharing laughs about funny stories. One thing I’ll always remember most was when him and my Dad were together one day, and the radio started playing, “Bang, bang, I am the warrior.” He started laughing and singing, and it was a side of him I’ll never forget. Always supportive, always there to make you smile, and was one of the best listeners in the world. I’ll miss you very much Mr. Queppet, and I’ll be sure to keep pushing forward on the right path. I can’t ever thank you enough for being a part of my Dad’s and my life. You truly were a brother to him, and I can’t thank you enough for all the joy you’ve brought him over all these years. One of the best men I’ll ever know. ♥️🌹 My heart goes out to all of his family through this ♥️

  12. So sorry to hear this news! Kenny and I texted every few weeks (last time Sept 5) – mostly about Phillies, Eagles, Philly SPORTS! But he also talked about family and how much his grandchildren meant to him. We have been friends since 1st grade at St Mary’s — I will miss him dearly! May you find comfort in all the good memories he has given us all.

  13. Compassion. Empathy. Generosity. Comedy. Kindness, Loyalty. Mostly, however, Love of his Family and Friends.

    These are some of the first attributes that come to my mind as I futilely try to describe the indescribable Kenneth Queppet. It may sound cliche to remember someone as “one-of-a-kind,” but I have never met anyone remotely resembling Ken. He always put his family members and friends before himself, always asking “is there anything I can do to help you?” without thinking of his own well-being.

    I knew Ken for nearly forty years and enjoyed every moment in his presence, and I miss him dearly. My thoughts and prayers go out to his extraordinary family and friends, who Ken always spoke of warmly and proudly. Fare Thee Well, my blessed friend. Fare Thee Well.

  14. Queppett Family, I am very sorry for the loss of Kenny. He was around a lot during my childhood. He used to tease us about his “wooden leg” He was always telling us stories to make us laugh. He will be greatly missed by the Conner family.
    Thought and prayers to your family during this time.

  15. While working with Ken in 2013, I used the term “secret sauce” in front of a customer , then later while having lunch ( he probably made me pay ) Ken very seriously told me never to use that term again. Period. So we kept in touch over the years and I especially enjoyed speaking with him any time someone used “ secret sauce” in a business conversation and the last time I called to Remind him was September 12th… we both had a good laugh. We will all miss you Ken , love your humor, insight , hearing about your family, your friendship and proper way of conduct. Cheers to you Ken and thanks for all the laughs.

  19. Kenny frequented the West Grove Diner with another school chum, Vince. Always a few good laughs reminiscing about our school bus ride back in the day. His family lived on Rosehill and mine in the old Rosecroft Development. He always spoke of his family as well. My last memory was at the police “night out” in the West Grove Borough. Kenny, Vince, David Peterson and myself enjoyed conversation and of course the band. Rest easy Ken. Condolences to the family.

  23. I was blessed to have gone to high school with Kenny, he was so funny and such a nice guy. I wish we could have kept in touch but life and distance is the end result. To his family and friends my heartfelt condolences, peace be with you all.

    Kathy Tolmie Davis | September 24, 2022 at 1:46 PM
  24. Ken was the best. I met him and his family 57 years ago. We grew up together, played together, shared good and bad times, mostly good times. So many memories at the mushroom farm, street hockey and as we grew into adults, our friendship never ended. I was lucky enough to have lunch with Ken just a few weeks ago and we caught up on things. My last memory of him was that we were both laughing and joking and as Ken always said to me upon leaving, “Flip, if you need anything, just give me a call.” The thing is with Ken, he always meant it and he helped with through some tough times. Thank you, my friend. You have forever affected my life. My condolences to Ken’s family. He truly loved you all.
