He served in the United States Army as a Sergeant with the 47th Infantry from 1969-1971 and was officially honorably discharged April 1, 1975. He worked as a heavy equipment operator for Bitterroot Construction for the past 20 years and was the best in the whole valley at what he did. He was very proud of the work he did. When he returned from the Army, he met and married Marsha Rae Zacharias on July 6, 1974. Also know to him as Margaret, he gave her many nicknames over their life together depending on his mood. They had a beautiful baby girl born on Sunday, Oct. 19, 1975 who they named Amy Mardell. Monte loved the name Amy and Marsha gave Amy her middle name after her mother. Monte loved his little girl with all of his heart. He was so proud of her and one of his best friends was his son-in-law, Mark, Amy's husband of three years. Monte was cherished by all who knew him for his never-ending kindness, giving, love and unselfishness. He had such a sense of humor and quick wit. He thought of others first before himself and loved little children and animals with all of his heart. He enjoyed spending time with all of his many friends and his loving family. His family always called him a ÒBig Teddy Bear.Ó Together they enjoyed camping, fishing and boating at the cabin at Owyhee Reservoir, scenic drives and going out for early morning Saturday breakfasts. He was such a joy to be around and the life of the party. All who knew him knew what a wonderful, gentle, loving and wise man he was.
