Kenneth Queppet of Lincoln University

Kenneth (Ken) Queppet, 64, of Lincoln University, died suddenly on Sunday, Sept. 18. He leaves behind a legacy of warm generosity and compassion for his friends and family.

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 was, 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 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, he was the son of Elizabeth Dougherty Queppet of Oxford 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, 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.
