Obituary for Dr. Robert Montgomery

Dr. Robert A. Montgomery, Jr., 68, an area veterinarian, family leader, and friend, passed away in Aultman Hospital, Wednesday morning, August 28, 2013, following heart complications.

Born June 26, 1945 in Canton, he was the son of the late Robert Allen and Alice Montgomery, Sr.

After graduating from Jackson High School in 1963, Bob attended the United States Coast Guard Academy where he played four years of football for the USCGA Bears under the leadership of legendary Otto Graham and was proud to have been a part of the 1963 undefeated team. Following graduation, he served his country in the United States Coast Guard.

Bob continued his formal education at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine where he graduated in 1975. He then joined the Town & Country Veterinary practice, and became partner in 1977. His love for the animals was evident every day he walked into the clinic and he was forever on the lookout for ways to improve the care he provided by completing an Acupuncture accreditation in 1992.

Bob can best be described as a lover of life. He radiated joy, encouragement, compassion, and love daily. Hobbies included golfing, skiing, fishing, and spinning. Most of all, spending time with his family creating memories to last a lifetime was of utmost importance. He adored his two grandchildren, and loved being their grandpa.

On June 15, 1968, Bob was united in holy marriage to his lifelong companion, lover, and friend, the former Cheryl Forgan. Together, they enjoyed being the proud parents of Amy (Larry) Hootman of New Philadelphia and Keith Montgomery of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, as well as loving grandparents to Jacob and Emily Hootman. He is also survived by two brothers, Bruce and Scott Montgomery; his father-in-law, Dale Forgan; his sisters-in-law, Dalene (Jim Vincent) Forgan and Becky (Steve) Studer; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

In addition to his parents, Bob was preceded in death by his sister, Jane Dahmer; and his mother-in-law, Marilyn Forgan.

A Celebration of Life will be held in the First United Methodist Church at New Philadelphia on Sunday, September 1, 2013 beginning at 2:30 p.m. A dessert reception hosted by Bob’s church family will follow the service.

At a later date, inurnment will be held in the Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery at Rittman, O. where military honors will be rendered.

Memorial contributions in honor and glory of Bob’s life may be directed to the charity of the donor’s choice.

Those wishing to do so may send the family a personal condolence and light a candle in remembrance of Bob by visiting the funeral home website at www.GeibCares.com.
