Karl Kuerner Jr. of Chadds Ford

Karl Kuerner Jr., 91, of Chadds Ford, died Tuesday, Feb.13.

He was born in Chadds Ford, to the late Karl Sr. and Anna Kuerner. Growing up on his parent's farm, he followed in his father's footsteps and farmed his entire life. One time he was asked what he would have done with his life other than farming, he responded, "Farming is all I knew and all I ever wanted to do."

In 1998, he and his son approached the Brandywine Museum and Conservancy about donating the family farm. He loved that idea and to see the property preserved was his greatest gift in life.

Karl was a member of the Brandywine Baptist Church and Brandywine River Museum of Art.

Survived by his son Karl J. Kuerner, two sisters, a nephew Phillip Edwards of Jennersville, and niece Catherine Stevens of Tennessee.

At the request of the family, funeral services will be private.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Brandywine Museum of Art, specifically for the Kuerner Farm and the education of it.
