Monte enjoyed fishing, camping, cooking, classic cars, farming, and Mountain Dew. He was quick witted, mischievous, and a risk taker.

Survivors include his siblings, David (Vicki) Martin of Cushing, Carol (Virgil) Meyer of Lake Alexander, Kevin (Janice) Martin of Rice, Mary Martin of Minneapolis, and Doni (Sharon) Martin of Foley. Monte was preceded in death by his parents; and sister, Donita Martin.

Thank you to the medical staff at the St. Cloud Hospital, Northland Park and many community service staff that have cared for and supported Monte over the years.
