Kenneth Blanton Lamontagne

February 15, 1954 — August 22, 2012

Kenneth Blanton LaMontagne, 58, died on Wednesday, August 22, 2012, at his home after a brief illness. Ken was born in Valdosta on February 15, 1954, to the late Melba Blanton LaMontagne and Ken LaMontagne. He attended school in Valdosta, Framingham, MA, Trumbull, CT and the University of Georgia. Many people knew Ken as co-owner and agent of Morris Insurance Company.
A warm and gregarious host, Ken was a talented and creative cook whose many friends frequently gathered at his home to enjoy the hospitality. As the laid-back father of three sons, Ken also gathered up their friends and to many he was a surrogate father or best adult friend. He coached little league in a variety of sports as his boys were growing up and welcomed all of the kids into his home. His grandchildren knew Papa as a warm and funny friend who would endlessly answer questions and join in the silliest of games.
With his family and close friends, Ken enjoyed scuba diving, bowling, scalloping, fishing and playing with his grandchildren. He was often found at the beach with Abby, his Golden Retriever shadow and best friend.
Ken is survived by his high school sweetheart and wife of 39 years, Lyndall Morris LaMontagne; three sons and daughters in law, Chris and Emily LaMontagne, Jeremy and Amber LaMontagne, Travis and Charley LaMontagne; grandchildren, Kendall Ann LaMontagne, Jeremiah Brooker LaMontagne, and Layla Blanton LaMontagne all of Valdosta; two sisters and a brother in law, Judy and Tony Hart of Knoxville, TN, and Sherry Sparks of Valdosta; two nephews, Rick Zimmerman and Bob Zimmerman of Washington State and three great nieces. Ken was also loved as a son, brother and uncle by Lyndall's family, John and Jean Morris, Janet and Paul Carter, Karen Williams, Sandra Ganas, and Rebecca and Jim Hendricks and six nephews.
