    Fallbrook has lost a great friend in Monty Voight. He was a guy who was very passionate about issues, but he always managed to be gentlemanly about it.

    Even though I often found myself on the opposite side of an argument with Monty, I knew in the end he would shake my hand, smile, and still consider me his friend. Monty made me a better person because I knew I really had to do my homework if I was going up against him.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Joan and family. I will miss my friend.
