Walter Joseph “Joe” Montgomery

Walter Joseph "Joe" Montgomery, 90, passed away on Aug. 15. Joe, a lifelong resident of Chester County, was born in West Grove on May 26, 1931. He graduated from Avon Grove High School in 1949 and proudly served in the United States Navy.

After returning to civilian life, he worked for DuPont Co. until his retirement in 1985. In 1960, he married Janice Goodwin and they had one daughter. An avid reader, Joe served on the board of the Avon Grove Library for several years and was involved with the building of the new library. He was a member of the West Grove Avondale Rotary Club for nearly 50 years and through the years served as president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer.

Joe was an author, artist, and inventor. A true "jack of all trades", there was nothing he couldn't build or repair.

Joe is survived by his wife, Janice, daughter, Denise D'Aurora, and grandson, Zachary D'Aurora.
