Jose A. Montes, Jr. "Pino"
March 24, 1977 ~ October 1, 2021
On Friday, October 1, 2021, Jose Arturo Montes Jr. (Pino), father of three daughters passed away at the age of 44.
Pino was born on March 24, 1977, in Ogden, Utah to Jose and Cindi Montes Sr. He was the oldest of four children and he was the definition of a “mamas’ boy”.
Throughout his life he worked multiple jobs, but one of his favorites was fighting wildfires in Nevada, he loved every moment. He was unique in that he marched his beat to a different drummer. He did not conform to everyday standards and was not afraid to be different. His laugh was contagious and spending time with him, you knew there would never be a dull moment. His love for his family and especially the bond he shared with his mother was unbreakable. He loved football and always cheered for Cleveland Browns. He had a deep appreciation for music and art and each of his tattoos displayed this through his life experiences.
Pino is survived by his parents, Jose and Cindi Montes Sr.; three daughters, Chaesity Montes (Dakota) Rodeback, Brinley Eborn and Katalina Montes; brothers and sisters, Lorna Pacheco, Maria (Vance) Ure, Francisco Montes (Latisha Sanchez), Rosanna (David) Montes; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his grandparents.
We want to thank all the nurses, doctors and caregivers who helped care for Pino these last few months.
Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. on Friday, October 8, 2021 at Lindquist’s Roy Mortuary, 3333 West 5600 South. The family will meet with friends Thursday, October 7th from 6 to 8 p.m. and Friday from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the mortuary.
