Kenneth D. Bowser, 68, of Lewistown died early Sunday morning, June 9, 2019, in the Central Montana Medical Center of natural causes.

He was born March 14, 1951, in Lewistown, the son of James and Lavinnie Bowser. He received his schooling in Lewistown, graduating from Fergus High School in 1970. He was united in marriage to Leslie Tindall in Lewistown in the summer of 1970, and in October he entered the U.S. Army, serving in Germany. Following his honorable discharge in 1973, he returned to Lewistown. They made their home in Lewistown and he began working as a truck driver for Francis Tindall Construction. Ken and Leslie later divorced. Francis Tindall Construction became Konitz Construction in 1980 when Ken became the crusher superintendent; he held this job until his retirement in 2005. In his retirement he worked parttime as a driver for Courtesy Motors in Lewistown.

Ken enjoyed hunting when he was younger, family trips to the Boulder River south of Big Timber, and his coffee club. He was a member of the Eagles Lodge of Lewistown.

He is survived by his daughter Nicole (Tom) Williamson of Crestwood, Kentucky; three brothers Larry and Richard, both of Lewistown, and Jerry of Richland, Washington; one sister, Rhea Hughes of Grass Range; two grandchildren, Zachary and Joshua, and several nieces and nephews.

A Celebration of Life for Ken Bowser will be held later this summer. Cremation has taken place with committal to be in Mount Calvary Cemetery. The Cloyd Funeral Home is assisting the family.

Friends are asked to make memorials to the Veterans Memorial Park in Lewistown or the charity of their choice, and they may be left with the Cloyd Funeral Home. Condolences for the family may be posted online at



Do you think the 2020 census will show that Lewistown is growing or shrinking?
