Carl F. Koser

February 22, 2021

Carl F. Koser, 85, of Danville, PA passed away peacefully on February 21, 2021 at his home surrounded by his loving family.  He was born July 29, 1935 in Danville, PA, the son of the late Phares E. and Maude A. (Hess) Koser. 

Carl began his hardworking life at a young age, starting out in lumber camps before becoming a truck driver for most of his career. He worked for several companies before retiring from American Home Foods in 1997. He served as business agent for the Teamsters Union Local 764 for several years.  

He was an active member of the Strawberry Ridge Trinity U.C.C. and the Danville Masonic Lodge 224. 

Carl enjoyed nothing more than spending time with his family and friends. He was a self-made handyman, always eager to share his knowledge and lend a hand. He was the organizer of countless picnics over the years, always striving to bring people together. Carl developed many lasting friendships throughout his years, in part due to his loyalty and trustworthiness. He enjoyed attending area fairs and tractor pulls and was always on the hunt for a good diner – he especially enjoyed hanging out with his crew at the “Five-Star” in Washingtonville. Perhaps his most favorite activity was watching his grandchildren participate in their school and sporting events.  

He will be remembered for his immense kind-heartedness and generosity, his positive attitude, and his infectious laugh. Often seen out in his signature cowboy hat and boots, Carl was a true socialite, always up to try something new and bring new friends into his circle.  

Carl is survived by his devoted wife of 66 years, Josephine “Jo” (Knight) Koser. They were married December 25, 1954.  In addition to his wife, he is survived by many decedents who thought the world of him. Son, Douglas Koser and wife, Nancy, of Berwick; six grandchildren: Heather Sockriter and husband, Mike, of Emmaus, PA; Adam Koser and wife, Denise, of Pittsford, NY; Bryan Koser and wife, Christine; Bradley Koser and girlfriend, Amy Brown; Brandon Koser and wife, Cassandra; Brenda Cool and husband, Chris, all of Danville; sixteen great-grandchildren: Joshua, Harley, Caden, Wyatt, Luke, Matthew, Axton, Jaxon, Ava, Myles, Benjamin, Jake, Ally, Senga, Avery, and Jordyn; and six great-great-grandchildren: Sierra, Blake, Beau, Kinsleigh, Cole, and Ryleigh. Also surviving is a sister, Helen Spring.  

Carl was preceded in death by a son, Larry W. Koser; great-grandson, Bryan J. Deibert; and twelve brothers and sisters.  

When you’re good, you’re good - and this man was the absolute best.  

A Celebration of Life will be held Thursday, February 25, 2021 at 1:00 PM.  Friends will be received from 11:30 – 12:45 PM at Strawberry Ridge Trinity U.C.C., 850 Cardinal Road Danville, PA, with his pastor and friend, the Reverend Shawn McNett officiating. Burial will follow in Elan Memorial Park Cemetery in Bloomsburg, PA. A picnic in his honor will be held this summer. 

The family will provide flowers.  Memorial Contributions may be made to the church or the donor’s choice.
