Vincent Farace Montagna lived a wonderful life. Known as Vince to all who loved him, he “left the building” on November 1, 2023, after a brave battle with pancreatic cancer. He was the devoted husband of Theresa “Terry” A. Montagna (nee Mays) and proud father to Lisa Bote and her husband Rob, Mark Montagna and his wife Amy Dear. Vince was the cherished Papa to Rune and Shea Bote, and Mays and Minna Montagna. He was also the dear brother of Antoinette Rathgeber, Rosemary Startt, and Albert Montagna.
Born on February 11, 1946, to Joseph and Josephine Montagna, Vince was a Baltimore native through and through. He was raised in Govans where he established friendships that lasted a lifetime. And like every good Baltimore son, he was loyal to the Orioles, Colts, Ravens, and Maryland Terrapins.
Vince honorably served as a sergeant E5 in the Maryland National Guard. This experience instilled in him a deep sense of duty and responsibility that he brought to bear in all his endeavors.
Vince was a proud Italian American. He was a member of the Little Italy Lodge where he enjoyed countless Friday night dinners with friends and family. He loved playing in Bocce Ball leagues with a team of friends. Vince’s favorite way to celebrate his heritage was to travel to his ancestral hometown of Cefalu, Sicily. He and Terry made this trip multiple times, always bringing along family or friends.
More than anything else, Vince was a family man. Vince and Terry supported each other all their lives, through the hardships they endured together, and the many more joyful times life brought them. They raised two children who learned that family is the greatest gift we have, no matter how it comes to us.
As we remember Vince, we celebrate a life lived fully, rich in love, service, and commitment. He was a man who believed in the power of family, the importance of community, and the thrill of the game. His wisdom, selflessness, and thoughtfulness will continue to inspire all those who knew him, and his memory will be cherished forever.
A Celebration of Life will be determined at a later date.
