|Let the memory of Monty be with us forever|
"I worked with Monty at PopHealthCare and while I did not know him well, he was always quick to offer assistance and a well-liked part of this little company. This comes as a shock as I only recently learned he;d left the company, but I can only imagine how hard this loss must be for his family and loved ones.
Please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace, Monty!
"Monty, for many years, was my best friend. He and I met while we were both instructors at ITT Tech (ironically, that institution passed away this week, too). While he and I had drifted apart a bit after he moved to Arizona, he was always in my heart. I have to say, I never had a better friend. He had a way of becoming a big part of his friends' lives.
Being friends with Monty was a little bit like being in the mob. I always felt like I was a part of something bigger than just the two of us. I was also always making new friends with other friends Monty was pulling in. "You'll like this guy, Dan. He's one of us. He's a goodfellow." I never saw a guy who made friends faster or easier than Monty, and I'm convinced that there was nothing that he wouldn't do for me or them.
I found out that Monty had passed on yesterday, September 8th. I feel like a piece of myself has died. While we were together, Monty brought out of me a person that I didn't even know was there. I became much more adventuresome and lived life much more vibrantly than I ever would have without him. I can't even begin to explain my feeling of loss now. And yet I say that the part of me he awakened lives on and will forever rejoice at having been a part of his world.
To my lost brother I can only say this: Go easy, bro. Try not to take over heaven until I get there. I love you."
"Monty, thank you for your trust and friendship over the years. Thank you for sharing your personal stories and your Family with me, it will always mean allot. I have the deepest respect for you and how you managed your world. I will miss you my friend."
"I knew Monty in high school. What a charismatic, fun, stunningly handsome guy. I seem to remember him driving a hot car, too. We lost touch after high school, but I hope he had a good life. He looks happy in the photos I just saw online. Sending love and light to his friends and family. I'm sure he'll be missed. I know Monty, he lived more than most of us ever will."
Have a suggestion for us?
