"Monte" was valued friend and business partner for many years. He founded and managed a successful business while fully enjoying family, friends and a long life . Monte, Richard and I enjoyed a good scotch and stimulating conversation more than once after a day at work. He leaves behind a legacy with his son Jim who he taught to manage the business he founded and built. Many of us will miss him and will remember him by successfully continuing to manage his legacy.
Rest in peace with your Laura my friend.

Dad, you are our patriarch, and you are my hero. You have passed on your strength to me, been my mentor, and given me a lifetime of amazing memories. You will always be in my heart, everywhere I go and with everything I do. How lucky am I. And how wonderful to know you are at peace, and smiling with joy, as you are with the love of your life, Mom...Thank You forever, with all my love, Joey
