Aug. 1, 1929 — Feb. 21, 2014
Lee Stuart Montgomery died on Friday, Feb. 21, 2014, in Davis. Lee was born on Aug. 1, 1929, in Bieber, to the late William and Bessie Montgomery. The Montgomery family was one of Davis’ pioneer families.
Lee graduated from Davis High School in 1948. He loved sports and was a varsity letterman all four years. He married the late Bonnie Jean Goss in 1952 and they lived together in Davis.
Lee was an avid sportsman and enjoyed hunting, fishing, and the great outdoors. He was an accomplished marksman with rifle and bow as well as a master cribbage and pinochle player. Lee will be sorely missed in the hunting camp and friends will no longer be privileged to lose “two bits” on miscellaneous games of chance or skill.
Lee was also an active bowler and golfer. He shot several holes-in-one and perfect 300 games. Lee had a way of making any activity more fun just by being there. Above all, he was a dedicated husband, father, and grandfather that was always there for others.
Lee is survived by three children, Walter Montgomery, Dale Montgomery and Bill Montgomery (wife Becky); grandchildren Tobi Montgomery, Kasi Montgomery, Jami Montgomery, June Schmiegal (husband Kurt) and Liam Montgomery; and great-grandchild Kassidy Rae, daughter to Kasi. Lee has joined his son John Montgomery and wife Bonnie Montgomery on the Happy Hunting Ground.
Graveside services will begin at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 28, at the Davis Cemetery.
