Kurtis O. Schroeder of Helena, age 67, passed away December 23, 2020.
Kurt was born in Havre, Montana to Bonnie and Orville Schroeder October 6, 1953.
Kurt worked as a mechanic for BNSF in Havre, Montana. He relocated to Helena following his retirement to be near his daughter Krissy.
Kurt enjoyed collecting classic cars, exploring on his motorcycles while visiting with everyone he met along the way, storytelling around the fire, but mostly making everyone laugh with his one-liners and sarcastic sense of humor. Everybody has a "Papa Kurt" story.
He will be remembered for his kind giving heart, random late night text messages; but most of all, the love he had for this daughters, grandkids, extended family members and many friends.
Kurt is survived by his daughters, Mandy Huntington and Krissy (Dave) Normandy; sister, Char Diaz; grandchildren, Kagen May, Brandon and Brooklyn Huntington, Keaton (Bean) Normandy, Cole and Connor Johnston; niece, Chana (Buddy) Bunton; nephew, Jeff (Glenda) Carr; greatniece, Kiana Carr; greatnephews, Ethan Bunton and Hayden Carr.
Kurt was preceded in death by his parents, Bonnie and Orville Schroeder, and son-in-law T.J. Johnston.
The family will hold a service celebrating Kurt's life at a later date.
