KOP GRILL & TAVERN Honoring SEPTA Conductor Daniel Ruley who was Murdered Recently

A Celebration of Life

Fundraiser at KOP Grill & Tavern on Sunday, October 23rd to Honor SEPTA Conductor Daniel Ruley, Who Was Murdered on September 11, 2022

The KOP Grill & Tavern, located at 128 Town Center Road King of Prussia, will be hosting a memorial fundraiser on Sunday, October 23rd from 1 to 6 p.m. for SEPTA Conductor Daniel Ruley who was a victim of a senseless murder that occurred just outside of his Germantown home on Sunday September 11, 2022.

Ruley, a thirteen year employee of the SEPTA Railroad Division, was a father of seven with his wife of six years. Ruley was based out of the Center City side of the railroad division, but his impact was felt across the system, since Ruley was what his co-workers describe as “extremely engaging.” He was described by his SEPTA managers as a “man with a smile that could light up a room and a laugh that made everyone happy.” 

When he wasn’t working for SEPTA, Ruley continued to serve the city he loved by joining the Free Masons and was an incredibly dedicated family man to his wife and seven children.

His death rocked the entire railroad division at SEPTA, as one of the brightest lights had been senselessly extinguished at the hands of an unknown criminal, who has not yet been apprehended. Family and friends, as well as SEPTA employees are searching for answers and seeking help from the city to prevent a senseless tragedy like this from happening again.
