Gregory Jon Montore
Dec. 13, 1972 – Sept. 1, 2022

On Sept. 1 we lost our son, brother and friend. He was 49 years young.

Greg moved to Humboldt County from New Hampshire in 2012 with his faithful companion Asa. He had a kind word for everyone that he met, he definitely had the gift of gab, his smile was contagious. He had a huge heart and would help anyone who needed a helping hand.

Greg loved all animals. He wanted to save them all. After Asa went over the rainbow bridge he adopted Jack, Hank, Big Kitty and Little Girl. They owned his whole heart and were his best friends. He loved photography, the beach searching for beautiful rocks of which he had many! He also spent many hours searching for driftwood, which he did as a kid with his dad. He would just about stop anywhere that he was to see a sunset. He had recently learned to use a lathe. If you could not find him all you had to do was check the shed and you would find him making a beautiful bowl, vase or pen. He worked part-time at the Blue Ox in Eureka teaching others his new passion and he was good at it. He talked often of Eric and the others who worked there and learned so much from them.

Greg died doing what he loved, it was a beautiful day out and he was happy. He will be greatly missed. He is now free to ride his Harley, eternally chasing sunsets and hanging with his dad looking for driftwood.

Greg is survived by his mother Judi, his brothers Keven and Michael along with his sister Donna, among other members in his family, friends, Joyce, Christophe, Bernie, Alisha, and many more. Greg Montore, you are loved and we will miss you.

May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sunshine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand. – Traditional Irish Blessing
