|Let the memory of Manuel be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Manuel Montero, 67, of Miami Beach, Florida who passed away unexpectedly on August 5, 2013, while vacationing in Vienna, Austria. We will remember him forever.
Manuel was born in Seville, Spain on January 16, 1946. He received his undergraduate degree from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia and went on to earn his MBA at the Wharton School.
Throughout his illustrious career, he worked for various multi-national companies such as Olin Corporation, Booz Allen & Hamilton, American Express and TNT. He was an ingenious businessman/entrepreneur and the engine behind several start-ups - his most recent, was SafetyPay, an Internet payments company, which started with his wife, served as CEO and through which he received a U.S. patent.
His life was well lived with passion and compassion as was reflected in anything he put his heart into, namely his family, his work, his friends, cooking, traveling and learning languages.
He is survived by his loving wife, Barbara; three children, Alejandro (and wife Alycia), Jenna and Kylie; two grandchildren, Gabriel and Xavier; and four brothers, Paco, Antonio, Rafael and Jesus Maria.
"Manuel and I were best friends at Wharton. He was both very bright and creative but also extremely charming and great fun. To all who had the pleasure of knowing him, it was abundantly clear that he was an extraordinarily special person. I have just now learned of his passing and Anne and I are terribly saddened. Love to Barbara and the children. Anne and Jeff Donahue"
"Happy Birthday my love. Your candle burns brightly in my heart."
