Andrew L. Montgomery
May 5, 2013
Andrew Lewis “Gump” Montgomery, Sr., of 1261 Raum Street Northeast, Washington, DC, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at Washington Adventist Hospital of Takoma Park, MD.
A graduate of Logan High School of Concord, NC, he grew up and resided for numerous years in the Old Tar Heel State before making his way to our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. in the 1970s. It is here where he spent over 30 years engaged in work and activities he was widely known to love, from setting up countless trade-shows in area convention centers and collecting the associated memorabilia as a member of the Teamsters (Local 639), to showing off the numerous museums and landmarks to his large and extensive family whenever they came to visit. Relatives frequently implored him to return to his native state, but he remained steadfastly committed to his adopted city and his beloved partner for many years, Brenda Smith and his godson, Rasheed Carroll.
He was preceded in death by his father, John A. Montgomery, and his mother, Hattie L. Montgomery; as well as his brother, Danny L. Montgomery. He is survived by his sons, Ricky A. Montgomery and his wife Stephanie of Spokane, WA, and Andrew L. Montgomery Jr. and his wife Kate, also of Spokane, WA; his daughter, Donna Neptune and her husband John of Winston Salem, NC; brother, Eddie James Montgomery of Washington, D.C., and sister, Sallie M. Johnson and her husband, Dennis of Concord, NC; 15 grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and many more nieces and nephews.
