Very sorry to hear that, Hugh. What a truly remarkable man your father was! He packed more into his years of living than pretty much any of us could ever dream to.

So incredibly sorry to hear Hugh. I can truly say that I was honored to meet him, even if his mobility started to go his mind was sharp as ever, joking and reminiscing. He will be missed by many

From The Washington Post:

Ambassador HUGH MONTGOMERY Scholar, teacher, soldier, spy, diplomat, loving husband and father, Ambassador Montgomery was all of these things and more. He spent close to 70 years serving his country all over the world. He was born in Springfield, MA in 1923, grew up in Windsor Locks, CT working at the family company over the summers when off from the famous Loomis School. A proficient linguist, a trait he acquired from his mother, a language teacher, he entered Harvard University in 1941 and before he could finish, war erupted and he joined the 82nd Airborne Division. His facility for languages caught the eye of the OSS and he finished the war undertaking clandestine missions for them behind enemy lines. He helped liberate the Buchenwald Concentration Camp. After the war, he finished his education at Harvard with a PhD in Romance Languages. He then taught at Harvard for a few years before joining the Central Intelligence Agency where he remained for his entire career except for brief interludes working at the State Department's Bureau of Intelligence and Research and serving as an Ambassador to the United Nations. He retired at the age of 90 and spent his last years mentoring the younger generation of Intelligence Officers. In his active retirement he enjoyed his pool, crossword puzzles and word jumbles, reading, and his chairmanship of the OSS Society, especially planning for the National Museum of Intelligence and Special Operations. He passed away on April 6, 2017 after a brief illness. He was a man of integrity, a true patriot who loved and served his God, his country and his family with grace, humility and distinction. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He was the loving husband of the late Annemarie Janak Montgomery and is survived by his son, Hugh (Karen) Montgomery Jr., and daughter, Maria Montgomery. Relatives and friends are invited to Ambassador Montgomery's Life Celebration at Money and King Funeral Home, 171 W. Maple Ave., Vienna, VA on Tuesday, April 11 from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at St. Agnes Catholic Church, 1910 N. Randolph St, Arlington, VA 22207 at 11 a.m. Interment will take place at Grove Cemetery in Windsor Locks, CT at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The OSS Society, 7700 Leesburg Pike, #324, Falls Church, VA 22043. Online condolences and fond memories of Ambassador Montgomery may be offered to the family at: moneyandking.com
