David P. Montgomery OPC '64 died on May 8 after a five-year battle with cancer. 

From the time he entered Penn Charter in second grade, in 1953, until his death, he remained close to his school and to his friends.

We will miss him. 


Update regarding services:

The Montgomery family has announced that a celebration of life for David P. Montgomery will be held at Citizens Bank Park on Thursday, June 6, 2019 at 3:05 p.m. The service will be open to the public. 

“One of David’s favorite times of the year was the MLB draft,” said David’s wife, Lyn Montgomery. “We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate David’s life, and his love of the game, than to invite his friends, colleagues and Phillies fans into his second home at the conclusion of the draft."

All gates at Citizens Bank Park will open at 2:00 p.m. Parking in lots at Citizens Bank Park will be free for those attending the celebration.

In lieu of flowers, the Montgomery family kindly requests that contributions be made to: Phillies Charities, Inc., Citizens Bank Park, One Citizens Bank Way, Philadelphia, PA  19148.
