Anthony "Auggie" Montgomery age 44 died peacefully in his sleep February 16, 2021. He was the son of Ruby (Glover) Montgomery and the late Charles Montgomery. He was born August 8, 1976 and was a lifelong resident of Bellevue until he recently moved to Columbia, Tennessee.
Anthony attended Bellevue High School where he excelled in baseball. He was a standout pitcher and an excellent hitter that helped bring numerous wins to the team. His passion and love for the sport was passed down to both of his children. Watching them play gave him the biggest joy and pride. After graduating, he attended Terra State community college and earned a HVAC certificate.
Anthony was a caring and devoted father and his big heart extended to everyone who knew him. He was an avid sports fan rarely missing any OSU, Cleveland Browns, Cavs, or Indians games. He enjoyed fantasy football, fishing, golfing and especially hunting for morel mushrooms. He was a natural at the keyboard, learning to play on his own. He will always be remembered for his karaoke performances and his ability to quote a movie line at just the right time. He made holidays seriously magical events. Dressing up in the very best Halloween costumes, singing his rendition of Blue Christmas and putting in so much effort to give the perfect gifts, the holidays will never be the same without him.
Anthony will always be remembered by his contagious laugh, his ability to never know a stranger and his love for his family.
