Obituary: Mark Montague, 42, dies while diving


Mark David Montague, a computer graphics engineer and son of Nancy and David Montague of Menlo Park, died July 19 while diving at Laguna Beach. He was 42.

Mr. Montague was a native of Menlo Park, where he attended local schools, graduating from Menlo-Atherton High School in 1985.

A graduate of the California Institute of Technology, he was a computer graphics engineer, with a wide range of technical interests including marine biology.

His hobbies were scuba diving, sailing, skiing and restoring a Ford Mustang as old as he was, say family members.

Friends are invited to a celebration of his life to be held at Caltech in Pasadena on his birthday, Oct. 2.

For those wishing to remember him, the family suggests donations to Save the Bay, 350 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza, Oakland, CA 94612.
