I am so sorry to hear about Monty. He gave me my first job when I was 15 at Thunderbird signs in 1974. He was an extremely kind man to work for and even taught me how to use a clutch. My best to his family

From: Myrna Park
Relation: work

Monty helped us with all our signage the past four years. He was always helpful, fair and went the distance to ensure we were happy with the products. He was a very hard worker. So sorry to hear of your loss.
