"Taco" "Shorty"

1952 ~ 2008

South Jordan, Utah- Tim passed away peacefully on May 27, 2008 after a tough and hard battle with liver and kidney disease.

Tim was one of 10 children born to Joe Montoya and Rosemarie Torres on February 26, 1952. Tim made his way to Utah in 1962 and finally settled with the Simpsons as his family in 1964. Tim was a dedicated Union truck driver from 1973-2003 for Local 222. On March 6, 1979, Tim was blessed with a son, Christopher Allen Montoya. Tim married the love of his life Loy Gallegos on December 4, 2000 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tim was a very special hard-working man. Fishing, camping, cleaning his truck and hanging around his special friend "Allie" were some of his favorite things to do.

Tim is survived by his wife, Loy, son, Christopher (Melisa), grandchildren; Casey, Zandar and his little princess, Brooklynn, sister, Barbara Jensen and her family, foster family the Simpsons, former wife, Gloria, stepchildren; Brandon, Shana, and Jesse Dalton.

"Tim, you fought hard and suffered much. Now you are at peace and no pain. I cherish the special times we shared and stood by you during the hard times." Rest In Peace. Love, Loy.

A "casual wear" celebration of Tim's life will be held Sunday at 3 p.m. at Prospector Park 10200 So. 2200 W. in South Jordan. In lieu of flowers family suggests contributions be made to the Kidney Foundation.
