Francis J. “Monti” Montimurro, age 88 of Layton, NJ, passed away suddenly on Friday, September 11th, 2020 at his home.
Francis was born in Greenwich, CT to the late Anthony and Carmella (Boskello) Montimurro. He grew up in the Chickahominy section, where he played football in high school. A renowned kicker, Francis was invited to audition for the Dallas Cowboys. After serving in the US Navy during the Korean War, Francis attended the American Academy McAllister Institute and Fairleigh Dickinson University. Francis was immensely proud of his career as a licensed funeral director at Frank E. Campbell’s, Walter B. Cooke, Riverside, and Williams Funeral Homes prior to his retirement in 1984. He chronicled his time in the industry in his book, Provolone in the Casket. Following retirement, Francis settled in Layton, NJ, where he owned and operated the Layton Store and worked as a permanent substitute teacher at the Sussex County Technical School. He always had a funny story to share and he will be missed by all who knew him.
Predeceased by his wife, Joan (Fuller) Montimurro; sister Marie Ledda; and brothers, Joseph and Lawrence Montimurro, Francis is survived by his daughter, Melissa Montimurro and her husband Raymond Loevlie; son Mark and his wife Sandra Montimurro; grandchildren Alex, Andrew, and Aaron Tirpack and Aidan Loevlie; great-grandchildren Dylan and Madison Tirpack; and brother Anthony and wife Cathi Montimurro; as well as many nieces and nephews.
Visitation for Francis will be held on Wednesday, September 16th, 2020 from 4-8PM at the Ferguson Funeral Home, 27 Third Street, Sussex, NJ 07461. A Funeral Mass will be on Thursday, September 17th, 10:30AM at the St. Thomas the Apostle Church in Sandyston. Burial in the Layton Cemetery will follow. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation

I was so sad to hear of Monti's passing. I loved when he would come visit me in my classroom at Sussex Tech. The stories!!! Had him over for a hearty Italian dinner and he and my husband Angelo hit it off! More stories. A wonderful man who will really be missed. My condolences to his family.

Melissa,Ray and all-so sorry to hear of Frank’s’ passing. As all have said, memories of him are great and he will be missed. Was just thinking of him and your mom the other day when I was looking at a quilt Christmas tree decoration she gave me years ago. It’s on display on a living room shelf so I see it daily. While we can’t be up in NJ please know our thoughts are with you. Linda & John Mihatov

I will always cherish the time I got to spend with Monti at Sussex Tech. I was a young new teacher just learning the ways and Monti always had a smile on his face and made me feel good about what I was doing. He will be greatly missed and I will never forget our conversations. RIP my friend.

I am just so saddened to hear of Frank's passing. He was an incredibly giving and loving person and I have such fond memories of him at our Student Center after school, interacting and goofing around with the students. He was always a bright light and everyone loved to listen to his stories. What a great loss for all of us and an incredibly deep loss to his family and close friends. My deepest sympathies and condolences.
Wishing you peace,
Suzanne (and Steve) Sarner
