Kenneth Quevreaux Obituary
Quevreaux, Kenneth Born in Webster Groves, Missouri, on October 7, 1921, to Edward George and Anna Wagner Quevreaux. He graduated from the University of Missouri with a BA in Business Administration and was captain of the baseball team. He joined the Navy and was stationed in Florida, where he met his wife, Emroy, who was a Navy Nurse. Ken and Emroy were married on July 3, 1945, in Florida. The running joke was that Emroy outranked Ken; she was a Lieutenant and he was a Lieutenant JG in the Navy. After being discharged, Ken played professional baseball in the Brooklyn Dodgers organization with the Abilene Bluesox. Ken worked in the Ad Valorem Tax Department at Southwestern Bell Telephone Company. The phone company transferred him from Missouri, to Little Rock, Arkansas, and then to Dallas, Texas, in June of 1964. Ken worked for the phone company for more than 44 years and retired in 1991. Ken was president of the Institue of Property Taxation in 1991-1992 and served on the first board of directors for the Texas Association of property Tax Professionals. He also served as chairman of the Appraisal Review Board for the Dallas Central Appraisal District. Ken served on the City Council of Farmers Branch from 1972-1981. Ken was the first chairman of the Farmers Branch Chamber of Commerce and was a member of the Rotary Club of Farmers Branch. He also served on various boards and committees for the City. After retiring, he volunteered at the North Dallas Shared Ministries food bank. Ken and Emroy were active members of Ridgeview Presbyterian Church and Brookhaven Country Club for 50 years. Ken is predeceased by his parents, his brother, Bill, and daughter, Joanne. He is survived by his wife of 69 years, Emroy; son, Jim and Sharon Quevreaux, and daughter, Judy and Pat Foley, and Floyd Coleman. He is also survived by his grandchildren and great grandchildren. The family would like to thank the staff at Prestonwood Rehabilitation in Plano for the care they have provided these past few years. Graveside service will be held Thursday, July 3, 2014 at 10:00 AM at Restland Memorial Park with a memorial service at 11:30 AM at Faith United Presbyterian Church, 12717 Marsh Lane, Farmers Branch, TX. 75234.
