Does anyone have any info on the man they found shot to death in his pickup truck in the parking lot in the business center on Avenida Aeropuerto yesterday (Monday) morning? I couldn't find anything in the newspapers on it. My son saw him sitting in his truck when he got to work yesterday morning. It appears he took his own life. Just so sad.

yes he took his own life.he was the owner of the buisness where his truck was parked.he was a real nice guy from what other buis residents said.we were told that many years ago in the army he had a shell shock accident and his ears would ring and drive him crazy. this recently happened a few weeks ago again when he shot his gun and sadly he took his own life. god bless his family. son of god

Monty and I were businesses partners back in 1987 in the equipment business. We met while he was working at a rental yard company and we bought and sold equipment on the side. We were not so much close friends but we had a mutual admiration for one anothers honesty. I hired Monty to work with me selling compaction wheels and soon he wanted to start his own thing in the grteater LA area so I just sold him my complete business and he moved it to San Juan C. and the rest is history. Man was I proud of what he accomplished.

There is no way Monty could fail at business as he worried about everything. If he had the best 6 months in years and the first week of the next month was slow he was sure it was all over and the end was here. But that kept him pushing.

When he and Kelly were dating he was so happy he could barly stand still. With Laura he thought he had lost all interest in sex and romance and then when Kelly arrived thats all he was interested in.

If you kids have any of your Dads values and I'am sure you do you will be all right just keep plugging on and cherish the memories and apply his lessons to your lives.

Kelly the other night when we talked you sounded ok like you came through the worst. You know you will go through it again and maybe again but you know your way through now and you know there will always be a way through it. Your a strong lady, Monty wanted a strong lady and got what he wanted. Thank you for the years you gave to my friend Monty.

This man was my father.... I searched for him all my life and in April of 2009 I found him.. He wished me well and told me too much time had passed and asked me to go away.so I did..til today when in conversation he came up. I knew of Ace Wheels so I googled him to show my sons ... as the page loaded, this is what i found... Although he wanted nothing to do with me.. I will love him always for giving me life, crazy how your heart can hurt for a father you never met! If any of his children would care to contact me I can explain and prove all.. I am your sister.

This was shocking to hear about Ray's death and realize another of my generation is gone. He will always be 16 in my mind. Prayers to hs family and especially his children and grandchildren.

I hope you have come to terms with your father's life and death. God gave you life and yor parents were the vehicle. May you prosper and know your Heavenly Father will make up fr all te mistakes your earthly parents may have made.

My dad was my best friend! EVERYDAY I miss him! I spent the last week of his life with him 24/7 he told me his deepest secrets and darkest thoughts. I tried my best to keep him around. It was the hardest thing I've ever gone through, trying to talk your father out of killing himself is something that no one should have to go through. I am haunted everyday feeling that its my fault he is gone. I could have done more, said something different, helped him see the light at the end of the tunnel....? I'm sorry dad.

The last conversation I had with him he said "thank you, I wouldn't have made it through the weekend without you" My father was a man of his word. But the one promise he broke was the one I deal with everyday of my life. He told me he would always be there for me. Watch me get married, be the grandfather to my kids that I never had. Well this October my wife and I are having our first child and, she wont get to meet her grandpa. I need you more than ever right now I am so lost! You were my rock, my best friend, the bond that kept our family together and now it is in Shambles! I miss you pops. You taught me everything I hope I make you proud.

Shelly,
How dare you! You have the nerve to post and talk about MY father when he isn't hear to defend himself! You should be ashamed!

This man is not your father! I have spoken with you and heard everything you had to say. Im really sorry you didn't know your father. But just because my dad was one of the numerous men your mom slept with in high school doesn't make him your father. Your stories and times do NOT add up. Leave my family alone! We have gone through enough pain already. I am warning you if you try to contact my little sister again there will be serious consequences!
