Kipp was born August 2, 1970, to Kenneth L. and Betty (Silk) Pfeiffer. He graduated from Doniphan High School in 1989 and attended the University of Nebraska Lincoln. Kipp married Michele Utecht on November 29, 1991. To this union, two sons were born.
Kipp owned Midwest Farm Management where he was a Farm Manager and Real Estate Broker. Kipp was a member of the American Society of Farm Managers & Rural Appraisers and the National Auctioneer Association. He belonged to the Chamber of Commerce in Hastings and was a past Ambassador.
Kipp, or “KP” to many, had a special talent for making everyone he met feel like family or an old cherished friend. Kipp was loved by everyone who knew him and he loved them back. He had the biggest family of anyone because everyone he knew became part of his family.
Kipp had a warm smile for everyone and greeted you with his big, booming voice, a laugh, and a giant bear hug if you were lucky. He cherished his family and friends, and let them know his love with frequent calls and jok- ing text messages.
He was proud of his expanding farm management business and took great pride in his customers’ success. This enabled him to have another group of people that he could work with, laugh with, and be his “farm family.” He looked forward to one day seeing his business run by his sons.
He loved his “buddy” trips to Utah, Flordia, Vegas, and Jamaica. He was affectionately known as “Uncle Kippy” to his nieces and nephews, as well as all his friends’ children. Many will remember Kipp’s favorite place was Harlan County Lake with his “Lake Family.” He was especially proud of his newly restored pontoon that hosted parties at Harlan. He lived for boating and socializing with his lake family all summer long.
Kipp was kind, generous, and had the biggest heart.
Kipp will be dearly missed by all who knew him. His legacy will be remembered as one full of life, love, family, friends, and fun.
Kipp was preceded in death by his father, Kenneth L. Pfeiffer; sister and broth- er-in-law, Holly and Scott Munger; uncles and aunt, Robert and Rosalea Pfeiffer, Captain W. Dean Pfeiffer, and Michael Brasfield.
