Kipp was born August 2, 1970, to Kenneth L. & 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 joking 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,
Kipp was preceded in death by his father, Kenneth L. Pfeiffer; sister & brother-in-law,
Holly & Scott Munger; uncles & aunt, Robert & Rosalea Pfeiffer and Captain W. Dean
