Monty was a special friend. He was always very humble and friendly. We met when he & Rhett were showing their Rojo Cabos Prospect. In the early 2000’s I had the privilege of being invited to the lunch group at the Petroleum Club with Decker Dawson, GW Brock, and Monty. We met almost weekly until I moved from Midland in 2019. Everyone that came into the club knew these gentlemen. The waiter had their orders memorized. I always enjoyed the comradery and stories these oil men told. Their exciting history in the petroleum industry would fill several books. Monty always beamed with joy when he talked about his grandson, Cutler, following Rhett and him in the oil and gas business. Their success together was a source of pride. It was an honor to know Monty.

My sincere condolences to the Gist Family. Monty was very near to my heart, and I enjoyed every moment that I got to work with him. He always treated me and my babies with love and respect. He will be dearly missed.
