This was truly an amazing person with so much talent the loss is clearly ours. Prayers fill our hearts and burst forth from our mouths to God asking him to let us remember clearly the love we have for this wonderful person gone from our lives never forgetting the joy we shared. Hebrews 6:10.
This special person will learn war no more (Isa. 2:4) and is surely a loss to us all. We are inspired by the many astounding accomplishments. May the family have peace we cherish the special memories.
Your GI Bill helped a poor buy from Georgia become a successful engineer!
"Mr. Veteran" will be missed. He was a great friend to the American Ex-Prisoners of War...and a terrific sparring partner with my dad...the two of them could debate for hours.
I was honored to serve as a page in the U.S. House of Representatives thanks to an appointment from Sonny Montgomery. He was a wonderful mentor, a friend, and a role model. I was privileged to know him and will always be grateful for his willingness to guide me toward a life of service.
Sonny Montgomery was a very special man . His smile and kindness will always be remembered and have a place in my heart. A wonderful genteel man . Rest peacefully my friend .
Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.
Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.
If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.
Congressman Montgomery, you will be truly missed because you were the true meaning of the movie and Officer and a Gentlemen. I remember when you were presented the "Order Of the Sword" in 1985 as that was the year I was in attendance as "Airman of the Year" for our Reserve Wing, and had the pleasure of meeting you again in 2000 during the Veterans Day Breakfast at the White House. May god bless you and your family and you will always be truly remembered for all of the great things you did for our nations veterans.
Sonny Montgomery never met a stranger and was a friend to everyone. He was a southern gentleman, and a great person. He will be missed by everyone.
Great Man! We will miss you.
Sonny Montgomery did so much for the Mississippi Air National Guard & the Army National guard. He also stepped in to help better the lives of the families of the Mississippi Guardsmen…
I’ve met Sonny at Kea Field ANG base & a couple of times at the Neshoba County Fair at our family’s Fair Cabin…He was a true Southern Gentleman in every sense of the word.
My heartfelt condolences and gratitude goes out to the family of this fine Southern Gentleman, and Honorable American.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
I first met this "giant" among big men as a fellow student at Miss. State in Aug 1941. He was "your everyday friend" and destined for greatness. My condolences to his survivors. His mission is complete!
A great friend and loved one, he shall truly be missed.

A true friend of the American G.I. and their spouses. He will be missed.
Congressman Montgomery was a great American! I appreciate all he did for the veterans. We shall always be indebted that he included members of the National Guard and Reserve in the Montgomery GI Bill. You will never know how many of the Armed Forces this impacted.
The great cloud of witnesses has added another member to their number. Thank You, Sir, for your years of service to our country. Truly, we will never be the same becuase of your selfless service.
No one shows greater love than when he lays down his life for his friends. John 15:13
To the family Thank You for serving our Great Nation along side of your husband-father-hero. He is our hero also. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
A grateful American family,
My deepest sympathy to all the family. I was introduced to Rep. Montgomery in 1988 in Savannah, Ga at a luncheon speech he gave there. I was introduced by then Rep. Lindsay Thomas D-GA. We had a nice chat about Clan Montgomery Society, of which we both were members. I admired him so much for all the work he did for our veterans. He did us proud!
My Dad attended Mississippi State with Sonny. He always kept in touch with Sonny through all they years he knew him. Dad passed away in 2003. They are together again and we send the family our deepest sympathy from the family of J. Ben (gator) Griffin.
This is a Great man for he has helped many of my family members and myself as well i would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to the Montgomery Family may peace and blessing and good memories be with you forever always

To the family of Sonny Montgomery: Sonny will be missed by all Mississippians and all Americans .. especially the veterans. As a Mississippi State graduate, we will also miss him. He was always a gentleman and made you proud to be an American! We truly loved Rep. G. V. "Sonny" Montgomery.
A selfless patriot to whom so many veterans owe so much. . .

It is a honor to remember Sonny Montgomery what role he has play for S. Mississippi in Congress. Plus he is one of my heroes growing up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
My sincere thoughts and prayer go out to the family of Rep. Montgomery. Rep Montgomery always thought of people and how he could make things better for them, especially people in the armed services. He was missed after his retirement and shall now be missed forever.
To the family of Mr. G. V "Sonny" Montgomery, I am truly saddened by your loss. Mr. Montgomery was a dear friend of my Father, the late Eugene W. Henderson Jr., in the past during his days as a businessman in Meridian. Mr. Montgomery was instrumental in getting me an appointment to the FBI in 1973. He has forever been in my thoughts for his friendship to my family and his service to his constituents. May God be with him and you the family through these trying days ahead.
