Lee “Buddy” Montgomery passed away from this life on July 13, 2017. He was 73 years old. Lee was preceded in death by his parents, Lee Montgomery Sr. and Martha Montgomery; and sister, Jeanne Cox. He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Nelta Montgomery; son, Steven (Sandra); daughter, Shelby; and two grandchildren, Aiden and Kira Montgomery. Lee was a strong Christian man. He served as an Elder at Lakeview Church of Christ for a time. At the time of his passing, he was an active member of the Weber Road Church of Christ. Lee had many hobbies and outside interests, scouting being one of them. He spent over 60 years taking part in scouting activities. He was an avid hunter and he liked to fish. He also enjoyed his hot rod cars. Lee had many, many friends. He never met a stranger. If he was waiting at an airport, he would know the life story of the people around him before he got on the plane! He loved being with his wife, Nelta, kids and grandkids. He loved and admired them very much. He will be missed by family and friends. Visitation will be held at Memory Gardens Funeral Home on Tuesday, July 18, 2017 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Funeral Service will be held at Memory Gardens Funeral Home on Wednesday, July 19, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. with interment to follow at Memory Gardens Cemetery.
