  2. In Memory of Jim Montgomery — by Emily Salvette

    Jim Montgomery, a Life Member and active supporter of the Libertarian Party, died December 14 following surgery for a ruptured aorta. A funeral was held on December 18 in Ann Arbor. His obituary appears at http://obits.mlive.com/AnnArbor/DeathNotices.asp?Page=LifeStoryPrint&PersonID=99767569

    Jim was a thoughtful, articulate, and passionate defender of liberty. He was an engaging and gracious gentleman who enjoyed talking to people. He would carry libertarian literature in his pocket so he could share "the Libertarian word" with friends and strangers he might meet. He ran for office several times, was a generous donor to the Party and an active volunteer. As a mainstay of the LP of Washtenaw County, he was always ready to help where ever he could. During the 2003 State Convention in Ypsilanti, he hosted out-of town speakers in his home and arranged for use of the Clonlara School vans for transporting convention goers. Whether at national LP conventions or at a local meeting, he always had a smile on his face and was generous with praise for all of us.

    Jim is survived by his wife of 44 years, Pat Montgomery, and their two children and 3 grandchildren. A scholarship in his name has been established at Clonlara School, which he and his wife founded. Contributions to that fund may be sent to Clonlara, 1289 Jewett, Ann Arbor MI 48104.
