Jan. 30, 1956-Sept. 5, 2019

Monte J. Bridgewater, age 63, left this world to be with the angels on September 5th, 2019 with his wife by his side.

Monte was born in Anaconda on January 30, 1956 to Jack and Peggy Bridgewater and was raised in Opportunity and Anaconda. When his mother died in 1968, he went to live with his Aunt Alice Charney in the west valley and was embraced by the whole Charney family.

Monte wasn’t a soft-spoken man, but he could be. He had a heart of gold and if you were his friend, he made sure you knew it. He loved riding his motorcycle, hunting with friends, telling a good story (mostly true) and spoiling his dogs Brutus and Koda.
