I was very shocked to hear of Monty’s passing. I had no idea that he’d even been ill. Quite simply, Monty made working in the payroll office a pleasure due to his absolutely hysterical sense of humour. He liked to ask about my pet rats, which not too many people did. He was the life and soul of any party and always got hmself involved in any extracurricular activities.
I shall miss Monty enormously next time I visit Imperial. And it’s sad that I won’t be able to drop him a line whenever I feel like it.
He was an excellent father and his children were everything to him. I’m sure Monty is with his sister Valerie now.
It was good to know him.
