Monte was a truck driver for a number of years. He loved being on the road, gardening, and being outdoors. Monte spent many hours cheering his kids on as they played hockey and baseball. Monte enjoyed his retirement by sitting in his kitchen window waiting to see his neighbours go by. He would stop and talk with anyone.
