Kent Quesenberry

April 06, 1961 - May 31, 2021

Kent Quesenberry, age 60, passed away surrounded by loved ones on Monday, May 31st, 2021. He is preceded in death by his father Avis Quesenberry, sister Loretta Quesenberry Templeton, brother Gregory Lane Quesenberry, and father-in-law Bill Robbins as well as cherished grandparents, other family, and friends. Kent was an outstanding husband, father, and friend to everyone he knew. He is survived by his best friend and wife of 35 years Joni, his treasured daughters Billie Quesenberry (Kerry) and Jessie Quesenberry (Wesley), his mother Joyce Quesenberry, two sisters Karen Coleman (Rob), Juanita Linkous (Jimmy), two brothers Bruce Quesenberry (Sharon), Pat Quesenberry (Sabrina). Uncle Kent adored and was so proud of all his nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews. Also in survival are his mother-in-law Jody Robbins and special sisters-and-brothers-in-law. Kent will be especially missed by his beloved fur-son Crash and their treasured rides to the river. Kent was the proud founder and owner of Riverbluff Plumbing since 1995. He went into business for himself to provide the best life for his family. He began plumbing in 1982 and was a Master Plumber and Class B Contractor who took pride in his work. He was diligent and ethical in everything he did. He was a master in his trade and built many houses in the Floyd and Montgomery area. It was recently said “Kent was not just a Master Plumber he was a Master at life.” He will be greatly missed amongst the construction community. Any time you see a river just know one of Kent’s favorite things to do was just sit by the river and listen to the water. He attended every single sporting event or honors ceremony that his daughters had. Every single one. He supported his friends and family in anything they did and offered his wisdom for every situation. Kent did not know a stranger and could make anyone’s day with a “Good Morning Young Man or Woman” greeting. He loved watching sports, especially Duke basketball and his favorite football team the Raiders. Most importantly Kent loved his family more than anything. The loss of Kent will be felt forever by those who knew him. A graveside visitation and service will be held at Jacksonville Cemetery in Floyd, VA on Saturday June 5th, 2021. The family will receive friends from 10am-11am and a service will follow at 11am.

For 35 years plus, more than a son-in-law, Kent was the son Bill and I never had. We called him for everything and he was there in a minute with excellent advice. He will surely be missed by the family. An excellent father to my two beautiful granddaughters. Everyone that knew Kent will surely miss him. I will love you always. Your loving mother-in-law, Jody

Kent was such a wonderful man. He will be sadly missed by everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. The first time I met him, I could tell how much love he had for his family and how much love his family had for him. Even as I am shedding tears for your loss, I’m honored to remember one of the best people I have ever met. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

My deepest condolences to the Quesenberry family. I never had the pleasure to meet Kent but I know and worked with his brother Pat. I'm sure Kent was cut from "the same cloth" as Pat and deserves the respect and love he garnered. May he rest in peace and his family find solace in knowing he was a good man.

Kent, from the first moment I met him 35 years ago, struck me as a true gentleman and a man deeply in love with Joni, who was soon to be his mate for life. Through the years it was always welcome news to hear of Kent’s full work load and how much he enjoyed his work and his thankfulness for his good fortune.. My visit to the family 10 years confirmed Kent’s great personality, self effacing manner, soft spokeness, friendly and helpful nature and his total devotion to Joni, Billie and Jessie and his plumbing business. I share the grief and shock.

Joni, I am so very saddened to hear the news of Kent’s death. As I keep a framed picture of our Macado’s lunch group on my dresser, I think of us often and as forever young. I remember meeting Kent at a Melissa Etheridge concert, feeling like I already knew him from all of your funny stories. Peace to you and your girls, Love Nancy
