Monte was at WT the same time I was. We shared many classes together and shared some after class fellowship quite frequently as well. I always enjoyed listening to him on the radio and our visits at the Farm Show. He was a strong supporter of the WT School of Agriculture. I offer my condolences and sympathy on the loss of this gregarious Christian Man. It was a blessing to know him and our lives will be enriched from that friendship. Steve Sherrill, Claude, Texas.
