Went to high school with Monte–he was a year older, and a star athlete, yet he took the time to bond with a nerd like me. For that, I remain eternally appreciative–made me feel like “one of the gang.” A few years later, our paths crossed in Sarasota–fond memories of that as well. Again, he was the star player and leader, but let me play despite my shortcomings. His humor matched his generosity–while he motivated us to compete, he always insisted that the process be fun. Never met a more amiable fellow. Love, “Globe Head”

Please allow me to express my deepest condolences to Becky and all of Monte’s family and friends. I’d seen him shopping a few times and reminisced about playing pool at the old hangouts.
May he rest in peace.
