Donation protected
Col. Kenneth John Yeasky, 60, of Belvidere, NJ passed away unexpectedly on March 3, 2024. Ken was born on July 3, 1963 to Mary Ann “Tommie” Tomczyk and Edwin Yeasky.

Ken had a distinguished 38 year military career at multiple levels in different branches. He graduated Kean University with a BA of Science in Industrial Engineering. In addition was a graduate of numerous military schools.

He served in a variety of theaters with three combat tours, participated at Ground Zero during 9/11, served in Korea, Japan, on board the U.S.S Tarawa, Germany, Kuwait, Iraq, Jordan, AFGH, Qatar, and numerous duty stations in the U.S. His awards, badges and decorations are consistent with those soldiers who have had the honor to serve the U.S. over a period of decades and the good fortune to return safely. In

1988, Ken met his wife of 31 years, Jolanta, a U.S Navy Veteran, at Victory Engineering. They went on to have his two cherished children Sabrina and Christopher. In August 2019, Ken retired from the military as a Colonel. Then in September 2023, Ken also retired from BAE Systems after 15 years. Ken was an extremely knowledgeable man on a plethora of topics, most notably military history and had numerous passions and hobbies. Ken was a proud cancer survivor, a condition unrelated to his passing. Throughout his time on this earth he made countless friends and touched so many lives.

 Ken is predeceased by his beloved son Christopher Yeasky and his brother Alan Kelhoffer. He is survived by his wife Jolanta (Belvidere, NJ) daughter Sabrina and son-in-law SGT Mitchell Crawford (Smackover, AR), mother Tommie Kelhoffer (Bonita Springs, FL) and sister Toni Yeasky (Fort Lauderdale, FL.) As well as countless friends. Services will be held at MacFadden Funeral Home in Belvidere, NJ on March 10, 2024 at 1PM-3PM. A reception at Bella Giorno will follow.

In lieu of flowers to the Yeasky family, we ask if you want to contribute, you can donate to this fund to create a memorial in his honor. Any funds that go over the goal will still be going to the memorial to make it as great as possible.
