My Love Bunny! My heart is broken. There are no words. I miss you so much it hurts! I am grateful to have been part of your life. I hope you are in a place of peace and no pain. I love you a bushel and a peck!
Couple of my favorite memories of Monte is when we (Iron Pigs) were all in a hot tub having some cold ones and he was the only one who never got out of the tub the whole night to use the bathroom lol.
Unfortunately we all never realized this until the next morning when we looked back over the night before. And thought about it…Hmmm wonder how he held it all night!! 🙂
Another one…we were all on someone’s boat, (Rory’s perhaps or Monte’s I can’t remember) and I had brought my 4 year old daughter with me. On the way home on the boat my daughter felt comfortable enough to fell asleep in his arms as he held her for quite some time. She had never fallen asleep in a stranger’s arms before. At that point I knew he must have been a good man or she would not have felt that comfortable with him.
That picture of my daughter asleep in his arms still plays on my digital picture frame in my living room.
Rest in Peace Brother.
Such a great man!!
Rest In Peace Monte. I have great memories of sharing an office with you at Stevens Center.
Remember you well, Monte. Always helpful and kind during tough contract changes at Hanford! You were a go to guy. Hope u got to enjoy some retirement. God’s blessings for your family.
Rest in peace my dear brother. I will miss our get- togethers, our birthday lunches, holiday dinners, and family conversations. I love you.
My love and condolences to my cousin Cheryl and family and all of Monte’s extended family. May God’s grace, peace and comfort surround you during this difficult time.
You will be so missed Monte. Thank you for being a wonderful father figure to my children, a father to Anthony, and grandpa to our grandchildren. We had many wonderful times together. See you on the other side – Jack
You will be greatly missed old man ❤️
