Gary L. Montgomery

Gary L. Montgomery passed away on October 29, 2023, in Owensboro, Kentucky, at the age of 70. He was born on August 8, 1953, to Joseph and Geneva Montgomery. He was preceded in death by his parents, brother, Clint Montgomery along with his mother and father-in-law, William and Nila Dickens.

God and family were most important to Gary.  He loved the time spent with his grandkids and enjoyed turning a simple cookout into a memorable experience for family and friends.  Gary was a genuine friend and had a desire to ensure everyone’s heart was connected to the Lord.  He was gentle in his guidance and encouraging with his words. 

Gary dedicated over three decades to Big Rivers Electric where he retired as a heavy equipment mechanic. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and supported the University of Kentucky sports.  Gary also enjoyed traveling and was an all-around craftsman.
