Kent Clark Camposan


(July 7, 2006)

The Rev. Kent Clark Camposan of Billings, Mont., former resident of Powell, died Friday, July 7 in Billings from injuries received in a car accident. He was 49.

He was born in Powell April 27, 1957, to Fred and Alice (Billie) Camposan.

He worked for the last five years at Home Depot in Billings as paint department manager. He formerly worked as head painter for locomotives for Morrison-Knudsen and owned his own paint and body shop in Powell.

He was a wonderful husband, father, son, grandfather, brother and uncle. He loved tinkering on old “muscle” cars, landscaping his pond and property at his Shepherd, Mont., home, playing his guitar, spending time and horsing around with his family and was devoted to serving in his church, Eagle Ministries International, for many years.

His family will remember him as the Ultimate Trekie. He often joked about being Superman’s brother, as his name was Kent Clark. His family would like to send the grace and comfort of our Lord Jesus to everyone who knew him. He will be missed and remembered by all who loved him.

Survivors include his wife, the Rev. Susan LaFollette Camposan; his children, Bridgette Camposan, Steven Camposan, Abby Waller (Christopher), Kathleen Camposan and Timothy Camposan, all of Billings; his grandchildren, Christian Ray Waller, 2, and Declan Jay Waller, one month; his parents of Powell; his sisters, Donna Nelson (Jon) of Colorado Springs, Colo., Rikki Paul (Jim) of Laurel, Mont., Gail Redman (Larry) and Sharon Fulton (Jake) of Powell, and Denise Watters of Casper; his aunt, Vivian Jones of Powell; and numerous nieces and nephews.
