Sending heartfelt condolences, love and prayers to the family! So sorry to hear this news! Went to Middle School and High School with Monty! Sorry I didn’t get to see/know him as we became andults! He was a funny and kind soul when we were young! I’m sure those were qualities that continued into adulthood! Take care of each other, as this will be one of the hardest things you will experience! Much Love

Dr. Emhonta Johnson was one of the first people to welcome me to the Western Campus. I will always be grateful to him for the kindness he showed me that day and every day thereafter I was fortunate enough to see him. My deepest sympathy goes out to his family and friends.

My deepest and most heartfelt condolences to the Johnson family. Monty was a rare and special friend. As a new postdoc to the country, the state, the city, and the University, Monty reached out to me and brought me into his family. He made Cleveland a home from home and helped to make my time in the States a memorable and cherished period of time. Monty had a huge heart and a welcoming personality. I will miss my friend. To his family, I know that you were the most important thing to him and that he was proud of each of you. May he rest in perfect peace. Elwin
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dr. Johnson, your family will miss you terribly and your colleagues too. But your legacy will never be forgotten. My prayers go out to your family, friends and colleagues who had the pleasure of knowing and loving you. I know your students will miss you too. Rest in the loving arms of the Father. Blessings, Jeanette Davis Metro Campus

One of the things I loved most about Monty was his infectious smile and those beautiful braids. And can we talk about your bowties?! Those were fabulous. I knew the minute i saw you walking the halls of Tri-C, West, you were a man of style and substance. I will miss waving to you, my friend, from the other side of the fishbowls in the "C" wing. May your memory be a blessing for all of us, and your family in particular.

Dr. Johnson, Monty... will always be remembered as a caring, cool, and committed colleague. His commitment to student success was genuine and unrelenting. He would do anything to help a student and would often reach out to me and other colleagues to create the supportive "village" that we know students need. That presence, along with his calm and peaceful energy in the halls of the Western campus at Tri-C will TRULY be missed. Fly high my brother.

Monty and I were professors at Tri-C and I always enjoyed our brief hallway catchups on the Celtics or our students. He always greeted me with a kind wave and smile. I enjoyed meeting the kids on campus - it was clear Monty was a dedicated dad. Sending kids and the entire family peace and many happy memories.
