I just found out about Monte's passing. I send my sincere sympathy to the family, especially his son. Whittier was a better city with Monte and his family as leaders in the community.

I had heard that Monte had passed away, but I just found this memorial page. He was my next door neighbor for much of my childhood, and he was a fun guy to have around. I had no idea he was 99 - he seemed so youthful and full of life. I remember his mysterious motorcycle (though I mostly heard it roar.) On the 4th of July when all the neighborhood would shoot off their fireworks in the street, he always showed up with the best and brightest ones! When my dad passed away in 2001, he came over with a shaker of martinis and two cocktail glasses (my Dad's libation of choice,) poured two, set one over the the fireplace, and toasted him with the other (my brothers & sisters shared the fireplace one later.) A very funny, generous, and apt gesture.

Here's to you, Monte [clink]!

We lost such a persona in our community. May God give strength and courage to face adversities. Do not lose hope.

I'm so glad to have found this wonderful blog. I was born and raised in Whittier and frequented Monte's camera store for many years. They had a great reputation for being honest, provided quality product & great customer service. I purchased my cameras from Monte's. I had my wedding photos developed there because I could count on quality results. It was always the "go to" photo shop. It brings back wonderful memories of going to a camera store to have film developed & prints made & enlarged. (A thing of the past). I'm still a camera & photo bug. Did not know he was a councilman. What a great life he had. God rest his soul.
