Dr. Joseph Allen Kobeski, age 53, of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, passed away suddenly of an apparent heart attack, doing what he loved best, hunting on his farm with friends, on Saturday morning December 9, 2023.  He was the beloved husband of Jena Elise (Iannuzzelli) Kobeski, with whom he shared 14 years of marriage. Born in Chicago, IL, he was a son of the late Walter Dan Kobeski and Virginia Born Kobeski of Kennewick, WA. 

Although Joe's loss leaves a void in the lives of those who loved him, his spirit will live on as a reminder to embrace life fearlessly and cherish the moments we have.

Dr. Kobeski graduated from Washington State University where he double majored in finance and real estate. After a successful career in finance, he decided upon a career change and returned to school to study dentistry.  He attended Temple University School of Dental Medicine where he graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2007. He completed his endodontic residency at the University of Pittsburgh in 2009.

Joe was the founder and owner of Keystone Endodontics in Lancaster, PA.  His patients (some of them, anyway!) loved when he sang country songs while performing root canals.  He was a member of the American Association of Endodontists.  

Joe embraced the phrase “Go big or go home” for virtually all aspects of his life.  He was widely appreciated for his ability to bring people together with his mixology skills and gourmet cooking. Joe mastered or became certified in many skill sets, including (but certainly not limited to) scuba diving, downhill mogul skiing, snowmobiling, horseback riding, camping, and home beer brewing.  He was an avid hunter and fisherman of all types of wild game and fish and collected just about every piece of equipment known in those sports.  While he cherished every expedition, his family farm held a special place in his heart, providing him with countless memories and moments of tranquility. 

In addition to his wife and mother, Joe is survived by his two daughters, Elise and Kara, whom he adored; two brothers, Michael Dan Kobeski of Kennett Square and Jim Kobeski and his wife, Sarah of Puyallup, Washington; one sister, Tricia Fotheringham and her husband, Robert of Kennewick, Washington; his in-laws, Ronald and Jane Iannuzzelli of Glen Mills, PA; and several nieces and nephews.  

In lieu of flowers, if desired, contributions in his memory may be made to a fund which will help support Joe’s daughters and their future education aspirations.  https://www.tmcfunding.com/funds/joseph-kobeski/8987/
