Civic leader, contractor Quesenberry dead at 83 By SHANANN GILLIAM, Staff Writer, Coalfield, March 27, 2001

Big Stone Gap and surrounding communities have lost a family member and friend with the death of Milford Spencer "Ques" Quesenberry.

He died Saturday, at age 83, following an extended illness. The life-long Wise County resident and decorated war veteran also was the founder of Quesenberry's Inc., general contractors. He worked on behalf of many community causes including the establishment of the C. Bascom Slemp Library and Lonesome Pine Hospital, where he served as a member of the board of directors.

A plaque honoring Quesenberry was recently dedicated in the new intensive care unit of the hospital.

Big Stone Gap Mayor Harold Kirk expressed his sympathies Monday saying, "Mr. Quesenberry has been a prominent businessman and outstanding citizen of the town of Big Stone Gap. He was a caring person always looking at how he could do something to help others to make the town a better place for all of us in which to live."

Kirk also said Quesenberry was a leader in civic and community activities. "Through his leadership, many significant contributions were made for the betterment of the community," he added.

Kirk believes Quesenberry will be greatly missed by his family, friends and anyone who knew him. "The family has my deepest sympathy," Kirk said. Quesenberry's long-time friend Charlie Daniels of Norton, founder of Daniels Plumbing and Heating, Inc., said he believed Quesenberry was the greatest person in every respect. "We had a fantastic business relationship," explaining that he and Quesenberry had been business partners in contracting and real estate since 1946.

"I really missed him since he got sick," Daniels said.

Daniels believes his friend has left a void in the town of Big Stone Gap's every day business and society. Since Quesenberry became ill in recent years, his presence has been missed. With his death, the loss is even greater, Daniels said.

"I just love the old guy," Daniels joked. The fact that Quesenberry was a year older than Daniels was a running joke between them. Daniels said he regularly kidded his friend "Ques" about the age difference.

Daniels' brother Jim said Quesenberry was "one of a kind." He was everything a gentleman could be, Jim Daniels added - a good family man, businessman and friend.

Quesenberry is survived by his wife Agnes B. Quesenberry; four children, daughter Leslie Q. Simonet and husband, Don of Overland Park, Kan.; son Spencer D. Quesenberry and wife Trina of Big Stone Gap; daughter Marcia Quesenberry of Big Stone Gap; and daughter Katherine Q. Messinger and husband Robert of Ridgefield, Conn. He also leaves his sister Georgia Q. Carver of Kingsport, Tenn.; 10 grandchildren, two great grandchildren and two nieces.
