Sorry to hear about Tim. After growing up with him and then being out of touch with him for so long, I ran into him at a bar and talked about racing for the entire night. I thought it was kinda strange that we both ended up racing. He was a great guy and will be missed alot. I'm sorry I wasn't able to make the funeral, too short of time to get out of working. Our prayers are with you. Doug Klemp Klemp Motorsports #07

To the Montonati Family: There are not words enough to thank you for the love and support you have shared with me. Loosing Tim is the most devastating thing I have ever gone through, and I don't know what I would have done without you. I lost someone I loved with all my heart, but I have since been given a strong and loving family in you. And to Tim: A minute does not go by without me thinking of you, hearing your voice in my head, your laughter, and remembering your smile. Those are the things that try to fill the gaping hole in my heart. I miss you more than words can say, and I will love you forever. I will always be your girl. XOXOXO Vix

Paul VanBoxtel couldn't have said it any better regarding our memories of the many "get-togethers" with Tim. You know how certain songs bring back certain memories? For some reason, every time I hear Offspring's "Self Esteem" or Beck's "Loser" on the radio I think back to hanging out at the "North Lot", parties at Tim's, and the late-night swims & bonfires at Jenny's parents' house in the early 90's. It's a shame how people grow apart as they grow older. Randy and I met so many people at the funeral home that we haven't seen in over ten years! Too bad it took Tim's passing to bring us all back together. Tim - you'll always be in our thoughts and prayers - We Love you Man! Lori & Randy
Amy Massey left a message on April 6, 2009:

He was always a sweet, dear friend to me. The countless stories I could tell from that fateful summer of '91. Tim, you will always live on in my memory and I miss you dearly!!! Love always, Freckles

Tim's motto in racing was "if you aint fast enough, get outta my way because I am, and I am on my way up to the front." And thats were he ended up, in the front. TIM YOU WILL BE GREATLY MISSED OUT THERE AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR MEMORIES. We will always think of the 86 car when it comes to racing!!!!!

I was lucky to know Tim. I got to race against him, I think the most fun we had was hot laps & bumping & banging each other!! I got to hang out with him off the track a few nights. I always had a good time with Tim. I know he is in a better place right now. I wonder if he is still talking with Dale Earnhardt, or if their making laps on the big track in the sky. RIP Tim Jeff #12
Paul Van Boxtel left a message on April 6, 2009:
To the Montonati Family, Just wanted to send you my prayers and to say that Tim was one heck of a guy. You know you had a good friendship with a person when 7/8ths of your stories begin with: "When we were at Tim's place partying", "That one time with Tim", "That weekend with Tim", and/or "You're not going to believe what Tim and I did". You know you had a great friend and a lot of fun times. He left many memories down here and none of his friends will forget Tim. Thanks for the memories and the stories Tim, you WILL be greatly missed down here.

Hey Little Bro --- 2 months ago today my world changed with a phone call !! You were taken from all of us and it hasn't been easy . It still hurts so much to see Mom and Dad torn up, Cole and Devon growing up without you, dont forget Devon is 13 on the 30th (send him something wonderful from above) --- Jeff without a sidekick, and me without your weekly call or visit just to say "Hey Sis" . We all hope you love how Sassy looks !!!!! Give dad the strength to drive her for you in May :-) I LOVE and MISS YOU LOTS !!! Always, your OLDER but Littler "Sis"

My Dear Son, It's three months today since you left us, and I still can't get over the strong grief I feel. Sunday was Mothers Day, my worst without you. I just want to see you, and be with you, but I know I have to hang in there for Tia and Bailey. I miss you so much. You were my precious boy I prayed for so long, and were taken from us so soon. I LOVE YOU, ALWAYS AND FOREVER. "MOM" XO
