Mario Montanez

October 11, 1970 ~ February 8, 2019 (age 48)


Mario Montanez was born on October 11th, 1970. He was the son of Carmelo Montanez Sr and Anna L. Montanez. He was born in Morristown, NJ but his childhood was spent in Easton, PA. He departed this life on February 8th, 2019.

Mario has had a plethora of jobs in his lifetime. Cook, maintenance worker, machine operator, landscaping, but his favorite position was being the warehouse supervisor at the Express-Times. He had to retire from there due to his failing health.

Mario was very witty and quick to have multiple jokes or some form of a funny story to share. He had quite the imagination and often used it in his humor. ���

In his spare time, Mario enjoyed video games, watching movies, working on cars, cooking, and supporting his favorite NFL football team, thePhiladelphia Eagles. (Which allowed him to gloat and talk trash to his brothers who all support the New York Giants.☹) But more than anything, he enjoyed spending time with his children and making them laugh.

He leaves to mourn: his loving wife, Blair Montanez; five sons, Joseito, Jocindo, Mario, Dominic, Sammy; two daughters, Tieneesha, Jada, and a host of siblings and grandchildren.

Read by Your Spirit – A Tribute to My Father

By Tram-Tiara T. Von Reichenbach

I know that no matter what
You will always be with me.
When life separates us
I’ll know it is only your soul
Saying goodbye to your body
But your spirit will be with me always.
When I see a bird chirping on a nearby branch
I will know it is you singing to me.
When a butterfly brushes gently by me so care freely
I will know it is you assuring me you are free from pain.
When the gentle fragrance of a flower catches my attention
I will know it is you reminding me
To appreciate the simple things in life.
When the sun shining through my window awakens me
I will feel the warmth of your love.
When I hear the rain pitter patter against my window sill
I will hear your words of wisdom
And will remember what you taught me so well
That without rain trees cannot grow
Without rain flowers cannot bloom
Without life’s challenges I cannot grow strong.
When I look out to the sea
I will think of your endless love for your family.
When I think of mountains, their majesty and magnificence
I will think of your courage for your country.
No matter where I am
Your spirit will be beside me
For I know that no matter what
You will always be with me.
