Joseph Montague

Joseph F. Montague, age 85, of Ocean Township, passed away on Thursday, February 6, 2020.

Born in East Orange, NJ, he lived in Cranford and Iselin for many years prior to Ocean Township where he recently resided. Prior to his retirement, Joe worked as an M.I.S. Systems Designer for Lucent Technologies. He proudly served his country in the US Army during the Korean Conflict. Joe was selflessly devoted to his family and friends. He lived by the words “go with the flow” especially when his wife Joanie would place them in the middle of hilarious situations that will be remembered and lovingly talked about forever. His heart of gold will always beat within all who knew him.

He is predeceased by his parents; Peter and Beatrice (nee Turner) Montague, his wife of 56 years, Joan M. Montague (nee Aldi), and his three brothers; Peter, John and Robert Montague.

Joe is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Glen & Theresa Montague, his daughter and son-in-law, Kim & Jim Sinnott, his sister, Betty Ryan, his grandchildren; Mark, Kaitlin, Joseph, Paul, Michael, James, Heather and Joss, and his great grandchildren; Cami and Everly. He is also survived by his loving in-laws, many beloved cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
