Obituary

Joshua Daniel Knepper, of Quakertown, passed away on Saturday, June 15, 2019. He was 27.

Born in Sellersville, he was the son of Lori (Youells) Brunk and the stepson of Ryan Brunk, of Quakertown.

Josh had been employed with a local propane company. He had also volunteered as an EMT for three years with a local EMS organization.

An avid outdoorsman and survivalist, Josh had loved hiking, camping, and all water sports. He enjoyed deep sea fishing and ocean dips on hot summer days. Trips to the Outer Banks, Maine, and Anguilla had allowed him new adventures as he wandered shorelines and woodlands…sometimes resulting in a need for rescue after being lost for several hours! He had also loved and played football since the first moment he could stand and put on a helmet.

The contemplative side of Josh had enjoyed writing, especially poetry, and reading, often devouring a novel in a day. His favorite food was cheesecake, but his least favorite was cake. Frequently used quotes were “Lucy, I’m home” from “I Love Lucy” and “Here’s to the best of us-forget the rest of us.”

In addition to his mother and stepfather, he is survived by a brother, Nathan V. Knepper, and his wife, Kate, of Quakertown; a sister, Kendra E. Wychakinas, and her “soon-to-be receiving a ring from,” Robert B. Hoffman, of Quakertown; maternal grandparents, Daniel and Genie Youells, of Telford; paternal grandparents, Darvin and Gloria Brunk, of Franconia Township; his aunt, Michelle D. Erdman and her fiancée, Heather, of Sellersville; nieces, Ryley Mae and Morgan Jane Knepper; and cousins, Christopher and Alexis Erdman, of Sellersville.

Josh was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Mary Jane “Penny” Maddox.

His funeral service will be held at 12 p.m. on Monday, June 24, 2019, in St. Stephen’s United Church of Christ, 110 North 6th Street, Perkasie, PA 18944, where a visitation will be held from 10 a.m. until time of service. Interment will be private at the convenience of the family.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Josh’s name may be made to Penn Foundation, P.O. Box 32, Sellersville, PA 18960 or online at www.pennfoundation.org or to any suicide prevention organization.

Josh was part of our extended family( extra kids) that hung out at my house. He was funny, crazy, and the nicest kid you could ever meet. My heart goes out to his family and friends. There are no real words to comfort at this time. Pictures and memories of the good times will help to console.
