Monty Wayne Carlo

PLATTSBURGH - Monty Wayne Carlo, 71, of Daytona Beach, Fla., passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2013, at his home.

Monty was born in Plattsburgh, N.Y. on April 26, 1942 to Charles and Catherine (Healey) Carlo, Monty lived most of his life in Plattsburgh.

In October, Monty celebrated 50 years with the Sheet Metal Workers Union Local 83. He was U.S. Army veteran, having served in Korea, and was a lifetime member of the American Legion Post 20.

Since moving to Florida 12 years ago, Monty became a classic car collector, joined the Daytona Beach Street Rods and Volusia Region AACA, and volunteered regularly at regional car shows, including the annual Thanksgiving Weekend Turkey Run at the Daytona International Speedway. He also worked at the Speedway during the Sprint Nascar Cup Series.

Monty was named 2012 "Senior Volunteer of the Year" at Champion Elementary School, where he donated his time effortlessly over the last several years, without having any connection to the school when he began. Today, every student knew him by name. In 2005, Monty was recognized as having walked the "5th Most Miles" in the Volusia Mall Walkers Club, socializing his way for over 1045 miles that year.

Monty's proudest accomplishments are his children, Monty Carlo and his wife Mimi Exler of Pittsburgh, Pa., Maureen Carlo of Plattsburgh, N.Y. and Susann Carlo of Ukiah, Calif.; as well as his grandchildren, Zoe and Sawyer Carlo of Pittsburgh. Monty is also survived by his brother, Charlie Carlo and wife Sandy of Plattsburgh, their sons Charlie, Chris and Jerry; his brother-in-law, George Corkery of New Jersey; and his best friend of over 50 years, Doug Hale of Plattsburgh.

In addition to his parents and sisters, Linda Corkery and Bonnie Carlo, Monty was predeceased by his wife, Carole Cobern Carlo, in 1964.

Monty loved to hit the road, and could often be found mingling backstage at a Bruce Springsteen show. This summer he made his final cross country trip, driving to visit all of his children, family and favorite friends.
