We Remember

MONTGOMERY, Ivan Meredith

We are sad to announce the passing of our father, Ivan (Monty) Montgomery on February 9, 2024 at the age of 93.

He is survived by his wife, Sandy of 68 years and their three children, Tara (Craig), Mark (Noreen) and Margot (Bill); grandchildren, Megan (Ryan), Lesley (Ian), Derek (Olivia), Karen (Mike), Sean, Paige (Jeff); and 8 great grandchildren. He is predeceased by his younger brother, Grant and survived by his older sister Lois.

Monty was born in 1930 on a farm near Gorrie, Ontario. He met his wife, Sandra Marie Stewart, in London, Ontario where they were married and their children were born. Working with Wawanesa Insurance, he moved from Ontario, to the Maritimes, to Alberta and finally to the head office in Winipeg, Manitoba where he became CEO and President until he retired.

He retired to BC to enjoy golfing at Gallaghers Canyon and skiing at Big White. He was an avid reader and volunteered for Community Policing and the Kelowna General Hospital for many years.

Monty was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He had a great sense of humour and was always there to give advice and a helping hand to his family.

Our family would like to thank all of the staff at Missionwood for their kindness over the last 2 years. We would also like to thank Kevin from the Village at Mill Creek for his compassion and support.

A private family gathering will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or charity of your choice.
