RIP David Montgomery

This is the way I remember Dave Montgomery. 

Looking happy as could be while holding that 2008 World Series Championship trophy after the Philadelphia Phillies defeated Tampa Bay to win their first championship since 1980. Montgomery, who in 1997 became the first home grown kid in over 60 years to run the team as president, deserved it. 

A class guy, well respected, wonderful man. He was always a pleasure to be around and always made us in the media laugh.

Sadly, Montgomery passed away yesterday after a long battle with cancer. 

I found out about his passing after this image I made while covering the parade in 2008 popped up on Facebook as his obituary photo. 

It’s an appropriate way to remember him. 

He loved baseball. 

He loved his Phillies. 

He loved Philadelphia. 

And we loved him. 

RIP David
