Obituary for Kevin Roy Poser

Kevin Roy Poser, age 62, passed away on Friday, July 10th, 2020. Though his final days were in Bozeman, MT, Kevin spent his life among the people of Denton and Lewistown.  

Kevin was born on August 3rd, 1957, at Saint Joseph’s Hospital in Lewistown to Otto and Dolly Poser. The fourth of five sons, Kevin grew up on the family ranch north of Denton with brothers, cows, and farming. In 1975, Kevin graduated from Denton High School and went on to college at Montana State University, graduating in Agronomy. 

While at MSU, Kevin met Susan Byers, the love of his life. They married in December, 1981, and had two children, Michael and Jennifer, who were his pride and joy. He continued working on the family farm - loving to be out with the cows, cutting grain, and caring for equipment. He made fantastic pies, grew an amazing garden, and dogs adored him.  

Kevin was a life-long member of the Denton Methodist Church. He loved when his kids came home and the whole family attended church. Listening to sermons from Pastor Dotti, Reverend Jack, and Pastor Margee Smith gave insight and peace in his battle with cancer for the past thirteen years.  

Our dad never quit working. Sure, he’d stay inside on cold days to read science fiction and good mysteries, but he lived when his hands were busy. Kevin restored furniture, drove combine, fixed fence, helped his kids at the drop of a hat, and sought to leave things better than he found them. In his final months he busily planned a water development project for a troublesome coulee.  

Kevin was preceded in death by his father Otto and his mother Ella Mae “Dolly”. Kevin is survived by his wife Susan Poser of Denton; son Michael (Lora) Poser of Lewistown; daughter Jennifer (Chris) Poser-Hayden of Bozeman; brothers Norm (Sharon) Poser, Gary (Carmen) Poser, Brad (Terry) Poser, and Kirk Poser; granddaughter Jo Zapata-Brown; several cousins; and numerous nieces and nephews. 

In the coming days, we ask that you take a moment to remember Kevin as you are harvesting, helping a friend in need, or hugging a loved one. A private memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 18th. We apologize, but due to Covid-19 restrictions, we cannot have a traditional Denton gathering.
