Condolences

  • Mike Barnhardt I remember thinking when I first started and met Monte at Senn, he was a great guy. Probably one of the first people who talked to me. He always liked to talk. He liked to talk to me about his vacations in Florida during the winter. I always told him he should go down to the Caribbean and he would laugh and say maybe some day.

    I always knew if Monte was working there would be a pot of coffee brewing and that was good. I like my coffee, but probably not as much as Monte did.

    I remember one time we were doing a job down in Mondovi. It was a ways down there and I had just emptied my truck. There were no more trucks waiting so the crew asked me who was coming next. I got on the radio to see if I could find out who was on the way and Monte answered. He was driving the next truck. I told him he was next and the crew was waiting. He laughed (imagine that !!) and said he had the pedal to the wood. I laughed and replied that was his problem, he needed to get that hunk of wood out of the way and put the pedal to the metal. I can still hear him laughing.

    Monte had a smile that would light up the room. I'm going to miss you Monte and that great smile.

    RIP Brother
