John Vincent Montoya Obituary

John Vincent Montoya, born March 12, 1963, passed away on Monday, October 30, 2023.

He is preceded in death by his father and mother Jose F. Montoya and Jennie G. Montoya, sister Gina Y. Montoya, and brother Joseph J. Montoya.

John is survived by his daughter Isabella R., wife Christine L., sister Debra Hulsman and husband Robert, brother Paul Montoya and wife Summer, his little buddy Mojo, also many nieces and nephews.

Known for his good heart and always having the best intentions, John was a man who lived his life to the fullest, with a contagious spirit that will be dearly missed.

John was a man who loved being outdoors, he was an avid hunter and fisherman. His love for nature was second only to his love for his family. The title he was most proud of was "dad." Being a father was his greatest success, and he instilled in his daughter his values of dedication, hard work, and love

John was a fan of the Las Vegas Raiders. His love for food was equally passionate, especially a good steak and Christine’s homemade enchiladas. He could always be found watching John Wick, Gilligan’s Island, or a John Wayne flick.

Despite his stubbornness, which was often a source of amusement for his family, John was a loving individual who always put others before himself. His dedication was not just limited to his family but extended to his work as well. John was a hardworking man, always striving to provide the best for his family.

In his lifetime, John made a significant impact on everyone he met. He was a man of good heart, always acting with the best intentions. His loving nature and dedication made him a pillar of strength for his family and friends. His stubbornness, while endearing, also served as a testament to his unwavering commitment to his convictions.

John's life was a testament to his belief in living fully and loving deeply. His love for the outdoors, his palate for good food, and most importantly, his dedication to his role as a father, are all facets of his life that will be remembered fondly.
