Brevard - A J Monteith, 84, passed away Tuesday July 29, 2014, at home, surrounded by his loving family.
A J, the son of the late Fred and Mamie Monteith, was born in Bushnell, NC, and grew up in Brevard, NC.
AJ joined the Air Force and traveled the world with his family for twenty-three years, retiring to Brevard, NC. He then retired from Ecusta Paper Mill, after twenty-three years working as an Electrician.
He was a charter member of Grace Baptist Church, and very active in the Church - a long-time Deacon, working as Sunday School Superintendent and singing in the choir.
A J was a hard working, well-liked and well-respected member of his community. He would lend a hand to anyone in need and was always active, up to the time when his health prevented him from enjoying the many activities he enjoyed. He led by example, from his strong work ethic to his dedication to his family. He will be greatly missed.
