BARRE TOWN - Michel J. "Mike" Monty, 87, of Osborne Road, beloved husband of Therese (Messier) Monty for 59 years, passed away on July 26, 2012, at Woodridge Nursing Home in Berlin, Vt., after an extended illness.

Mike was born in Northfield on Jan. 25, 1925, to the late Valeda (Bedard) and Charles E. Monty. A self-taught carpenter and construction worker, he established Monty Construction, which worked independently and for various companies throughout Vermont. He was a devoted parishioner and Eucharistic minister at St. Monica Parish in Barre, and was a fourth degree knight of the Knights of Columbus. A strong proponent of education, Mike took great pride in learning new skills and teaching his expertise. Notorious for his sense of humor, he loved to converse and laugh with everyone he met, and was well-known by the greater Barre community. When not woodworking or tinkering, Mike took great pleasure in religious study, cars, travel and photography.

He is survived by many loved ones, including his wife, Therese, and eight children, Lea Collins and her husband, Ron, of Williamstown, Annette Marden and her husband, Charles, of Londonderry, N.H., Loren Monty and his wife, Sharon, of Roswell, Ga., Julianne Monty, of Barre, Charles Monty and his wife, Heather, of North Granby, Conn., Melanie Moore and her husband, Michael, of Barre, Micheline Pelletier and her husband, Gary, of Andover, Mass., and Celeste Monty, of Willington, Conn.; and 13 grandchildren. Mike's brother Al Monty and his wife, Anita, of Barre, and sister Lise Monty Leary, of Wilmington, Del., also survive him. Mike was predeceased by four siblings, Jacqueline Vozzella, Charles Monty, Paul "Joe" Monty and Jeanne DellaBianca.
