I remember Monty, his brother Joe and James (Slim) Austin, setting up a bucking barrel at Mr. Austin's to practice their bull riding. The younger kids or at least us girls were not allowed to ride, but we got to swing on the ropes to make the barrel buck.
Monty was the quiet one but also the kindest. So much fun for us.
Prayers to Judy and the rest of the Gonzalez family.

Even though I haven't seen Monty in more than 50 years, I have fond memories of spending time with him and Joe as a youngster. I was just a kid but they were good enough to let me hang around with them. We rode horses, and roped, and rode the bucking barrel, and they even took me fishing with them a time or two.

Pretty fun stuff for a kid to be able to hang out with the older cool guys. Thanks Monty and Joe.

Ride in Peace, Monty.
