Monty Lougy Obituary

Monty Dale Lougy passed very peacefully at his home on October 6, 2023.

He was born in Tooele Utah on Earth Day April 22, 1956, to James Leonard (Hap) and Charlene Lougy.

As a boy he loved exploring Tooele County and bringing home creatures of all kinds. He could be found riding his bike with his trusty dog cookie zipped into his jacket. He loved hunting and fishing and just being “out in the hills.”

After graduating from Tooele High School in 1974, he joined the Navy and was stationed on the USS Enterprise.

He was an electrical lineman at Dugway Proving Grounds in Utah and then moved to Elko, NV where he worked at Newmont Gold as an electrical instrumentation, HVAC tech from 1988-2018 and retired after 30 years.

He loved his back yard and deck and could often be found feeding the birds and squirrels. Just a week before he passed, a blue jay arrived in his yard for the first time, he was tickled.

He is survived by his mother Charlene Lougy, sisters Cindy Perry, Leisa (Mark) Bankhead, Jody Lougy; his children Nisha Amber (Brian) Bellem, Clara Lougy, Lamont Lougy, nephew and friend Preston Fawson and his two granddaughters Evelynn Bellem and Marjorie (Maggie) Lougy. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews as well as many other “kids” he considered family.

Monty will be remembered for his quick wit, his love of the Great Basin and its artifacts, his art and poetry, his patriotism, and above all his fierce love for all those he considered family.

“God inhibits no view of his almighty plan. I’ll live, love, and die a Great Basin man.”


A service will be held at Burns Funeral Home on Saturday, October 14, at 1:00 in the afternoon. Reception will follow at the Masonic Lodge 576 14th Street in Elko.
