On Thursday, June 18, 2020, Monty Edward Christian, loving husband, father and grandpa, passed away after complications from a stroke.
Monty was born October 14th, 1949 in Phoenix, AZ to Hubert Jr and Irene (Russell) Christian. He joined the army following graduation from Arcadia High, then toured the country during his career in hospitality before meeting his wife, Carolyn, in Irving, TX. Together they raised three children, and were blessed with nine grandchildren.
After more than 30 years in car sales, Monty retired and took up the great responsibility of posting copious amounts of Dad Jokes on social media. His sense of humor will be greatly missed.
He is lovingly remembered by his sons, Jeremy and Amanda Christian of Quinlan, Jonathan and Ashley Christian of Point, daughter Meagan and Chris Allen of Greenville, grandchildren Sydney, Anna, Mercedes, Dade, Jeremy Jr., Coraline, Taylor, Avalyn and River, as well as several cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
Monty was preceded in death by his wife, Carolyn, of Lone Oak, his brother, Gary Lynn, and his parents of Phoenix.
A memorial service will be held at a future date to be announced. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Monty's name to the Quinlan Band Boosters at P.O. Box 2502 Quinlan, Tx 75474
