Loren Montgomery Obituary
Montgomery, Loren T. Loren T. Montgomery passed away April 9, 2012, at his home in Dallas from natural causes. He was born May 2, 1953, in Rogersville, Tenn-essee, and was a Baptist. Family survivors include: his mother, Allene Montgomery of Robbins-ville, North Carolina; his aunts, Edna Moody and Mary Lou Hooper; and his cousins, Cathy McGill, Vick Smith, Emily Pressley, Eddie Smith, Joyce Skelton, Wanda Collins, Jan Stewart, Melaine Enloe, and Jane Sutton. He is also survived by a host of friends in the Dallas/ Fort Worth area, where he was prominent title insurance executive and civic leader from over 30 years. From 6 to 8:30 p.m., Monday, April 23, 2012, his friends will host a Celebration of Loren's Life, with Jim Cervine officiating, in Winfrey Point Clubhouse at White Rock Lake. He graduated from the University of North Carolina in both Cullo-whee and Greensboro, where he earned a B.A. in Political Science, a B.A. in Art History, and a B.F.A. in Painting, before pursuing graduate work at UNC in Greensboro. He was a former director of the Texas Land Title Association, board chairman of the Southern Dallas Development Corporation, and a director of the Greater Dallas Crime Commission. Other professional and civic involvements included: Urban Land Institute; International Council of Shopping Centers; National Association of Industrial and Office Parks; the North Texas CCIM Chapter; the Real Estate Council of Dallas/Fort Worth; and the Texas Land Brokers Association. He was known throughout com-mercial-investment real estate for his monthly breakfast meetings featuring networking and topical guest speakers. Gifted for his ability to bring highly-talented commercial real estate professionals together to transact business, he was widely-lauded and relied upon for knowing just the right person for a particular transaction. His long career in the title insurance profession included executive experience at Safeco Title, Commerce Title Company, Amer-ican Title Company, Safeco Land Title of Dallas, American Trinity Title Group and Preston Title, before beginning his tenure at First Western Title Insurance. His repu-tation in the title insurance business was for both excellent service and ethical practices. He loved seeing others succeed in life. He cared deeply about his community and took action that resulted in practical improvements in the lives of others. His remains have been cremated, and his ashes will be interred along-side his father's in North Carolina. Persons wishing to memorialize Loren T. Montgomery should give to their favorite charity and tell his life's story to those causes which benefit from his memorial gifts or give to Spirit Horse (www.spirit horsetherapy.com) or Mane Gait (www.manegait.org/donate), both specialists in equine therapy for children, handicapped persons, and persons with emotional disorders.
