Blaine Montgomery Obituary
Blaine Lewis Montgomery, M.D.

Now absent from our lives, but ever-present in our hearts, Blaine Lewis Montgomery M.D., passed away peacefully at home in his sleep with his wife, Valrie by his side on July 20, 2017.
Blaine was born on September 26, 1930 in Los Angeles California to Blaine and Helen Montgomery. He grew up in Los Angeles attending Washington High School then going on to UCLA where he graduated with a degree in Chemistry. During his time in college he met a neighbor girl, Valrie McCormick, who became the love of his life, after 4 years of courtship they married and were blessed with 63 years of marriage having 2 children, Ronald and Donna. They also have 2 grandchildren, Brendan and Megan Greaney. Blaine went on to medical school and received his medical degree from UC Irvine. After several years in general practice, Blaine became board certified in Radiology and Nuclear Medicine. He was the head of Radiology at Bay Harbor Hospital for many years. Blaine loved his career and was proud to say he worked until the age of 83.
Blaine was a happy man flying his airplane or racing around town in one of his many Corvettes. He was a lover of music and always drummed along to every song on the radio, especially to Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline." He was fascinated with language and always surprised waiters at all types of restaurants when he ordered in their native tongue. Just to make people smile, Blaine was known for breaking out in tap dance while wearing his infamous Western Boots.
But above all, Blaine loved his family and friends. He and Valrie traveled almost every corner of the world, often with many of their friends. Blaine and Val set a wonderful example in marriage for all the family. He was a devoted husband, a great father, doting grandfather and a beloved friend by many. He was an affectionate and loving man who always offered unconditional words of encouragement and support. His quick wit, sense of humor and kindness was a true joy to those that had the pleasure of knowing him.
May the anguish of our loss be eased by the wonderful memories of him and how he deeply touched all of our lives. If you listen closely, you can hear Blaine tap dancing in heaven.
