Monty was also a golfer, boater, pilot and could often be seen on the links at Stone Harbor Golf Club. He was a patriot and proud of his country, its flag and its veterans.  His positive outlook and sense of humor awarded him many friends.  Monty had a passion for the poor and served on the Middle Township Mayor’s Commission for Affordable Housing.  He also volunteered in rescuing furniture and household items and distributing them to those in need.

Monty is survived by his wife, Shellie,  Son, Paul Lamont Tibbitts (Lynn), Ocean View, NJ, five grandchildren Kenny Carfagno (Teresa), Quakertown, PA, Amanda Burchell (Brandon) Ocean View, Jenna Tibbitts, Ocean View,  Marissa Harris (Josiah) of Ocean City, Joshua Paul Lamont and  two great grandchildren, Avery Grace Burchell and Noah Harris, five step grandchildren, Kenny, Christianna, Kolby, Kye, and Kasey.

Monty’s sister and brother-in-law, Jody and Jimmy Vickers reside in Palm Desert, CA.  He is also survived by sisters-in-law, Linda Connolly of Cape May, NJ and Dana England, Kansas City, KS; brother-in-law Jeff England (Lonnie), Kansas City, KS.  Nephews, Michael Connolly (Nancy), Linwood, NJ, Robert Connolly (Evonne), Washington, D.C., Scott England, Kansas City, Chris England (Annie) Kansas City and Blake England, Denver, CO, four great nieces, Caroline Connolly, Olivia Connolly, Shayne Connolly, and Maeve Connolly.

Monty was a member of St Mary’s Episcopal Church in Stone Harbor, NJ, where a service will be held on Thursday, December 20, 2018 at 11:00 am.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Beacon Animal Rescue, 701 Butter Road, Ocean View, NJ 08230 or New Jersey Nature Rescue, Steve Serwatka, 2353 Route 47, Delmont, NJ 08814.
