Obituary

Lamont Allen (“Monty”) Loudenslager, 64 entered into the arms of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, September 8, 2018 after a short illness.

Monty was the second of three children born to William and Bonnie Loudenslager, in Canton, SD on January 1, 1954. He graduated from Washington High School in Sioux Falls, SD in 1972. Upon graduating, he enrolled at Northwestern Bible College, Roseville, MN, and received his Bachelor of Arts in Ministry in 1978. In September of 1978, Monty continued his ministry aspirations at North American Baptist Seminary, Sioux Falls, SD, completing his Master of Divinity degree in 1982. He faithfully served First Baptist Church, McLaughlin, SD, Century Baptist Church, Bismarck, ND, First Baptist Church, Lorraine, KS, and Metropolitan Baptist Church, Fargo, ND. Since 2013 he has served as Chaplain at Sanford Hospital in Fargo, ND. Monty loved God’s Word and was a well-loved and loving pastor, teacher, counselor and friend to those he served. He was a man of great faith, known for his vast library.

Monty married Kym Leslie Christopherson in August of 1978. In 1990 and 1999, they were blessed with their 2 “miracle” adopted children. His greatest joy was to show his children how to follow Jesus, as he led them to accept Jesus Christ as their own personal savior, and had the privilege to baptize each. He will be dearly missed by his loved ones, who celebrate the fact that he is at rest and peace with his Creator.

He is survived by his son, Lane 19, West Fargo, ND, his daughter, Kalae, 28, West Fargo, ND, his mother, Bonnie L. Loudenslager, Sioux Falls, SD, his sister, Linda Kenyon, Sioux Falls, SD, his brother James (Joyce) Loudenslager, Sioux Falls, SD; and several nephews and nieces. He was preceded in death by his father, William E. Loudenslager, and his brother-in-law Michael Kenyon.

The family would like to express their deepest appreciation to the Staff and Colleagues at Sanford Hospital for their compassion and care given to Monty and his family. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Monty may be made to Desiring God in Minneapolis, MN.

    Sorry to hear of Monte’s passing. Thoughts and Prayers

  2. Camille Heuer says:

    Pastor Monty was an amazing man. Well-versed in God’s Word and excellent in teaching it. His knowledge was as extensive as the library from which he studied it. His sermons were right on point and many time we teased him of “meddling” in our lives, meddling directed by God. He will be truly missed not just as a teacher but friend and encourager. If one had a concern, he always made time for you. My heart goes out to Lane and Kalae. Your Dad was a wonderful man and loved you both so much. Lifting up your family in prayer at this sad time but praising God knowing your Dad is with Him.

    My deepest condolences to the family. I was fortunate to work with Monty at Sanford. It was always such a pleasure to talk with him as he had such a calming nature. I’m sure he is sharing ice cream with God right now.

    I am deeply saddened to hear of Pastor Monty’s passing. He was my childhood pastor in Lorraine, KS, and was the one who baptized me. I have many fond memories of him and his family and my condolences go out to them at this time. Pastor Monty was a great man and will be missed by many.

    I have known Monty since the day I was born as one of my very best neighborhood friends growing up on Holly Avenue in Sioux Falls. So much fun together as kids! Monty was known in the neighborhood as extremely agile and quick in all the concocted sporting events we created with the neighbor kids. Such a fun-loving and steady friend. One silly anecdote which reflects Monty’s character: I remember we once got into a physical scuffle over some matter, and I kicked him and sprained my toe. True to Monty’s nature he felt bad for me, and explained if you want to kick someone you should do it with your heel not your toe! I have seen Monty many times since we moved on from Sioux Falls and it was always special to see he remained the very same friend I loved in my childhood.

    Greeting to the family. I remember Monty from Northwestern College, now Northwestern University. Later, I was surprised, but pleased to hear him speak at the Bismarck NAB church. The church hosted the NWC Choir during their spring tour, and my parents and I drove over from Dickinson to hear them sing.
    He will definitely be missed. How great it is to know that we will see him again in heaven with our Savior. My sympathy to his family.

  12. Barbara Bickle says:

    Was saddened to read of Monty’s passing. I enjoyed visiting with him when I worked at Sanford. He was a kind and compassionate man. My condolences.

  13. Char Wahl Saxon says:

    So sorry to hear of Monty’s going home. It’s a wonderful thing for Monty but a very difficult journey for those left behind.
    I went to Northwestern College with Monty and have many fond memories from the “good old days” 😃
    My first husband Wade was good friends with Monty and they played ball together at NW. Wade passed away in 2003. I can just envision them playing catch together and laughing a lot on the streets of gold!
    My heart goes out to the whole family. We did some serious praying for the safe arrival of those two babies back in the 90’s! Such a blessing and gift to Monty and Kym. Lane and Kalae I will keep you in my prayers as you take baby steps through this journey called grief.
    It never goes away you just learn how to live with a new “normal”.
    With much sadness in my heart,
    Char Brenneise Wahl Saxon

    I went to school with Monty and loved in the same neighborhood growing up. So sorry to hear of his passing. Condolences to the family.

    Dear Bonnie, Linda, Jim and Family–

    My sympathy on Monte’s passing. As childhood neighbors, I recall many moments (some very competitive)–and later played Legion Baseball with him–he was an excellent catcher!! It has been many years, but as we age, we never forget those times of the “Wonder Years”–my thoughts go out to all of you, and all are in my and prayers!

    Sorry to hear about your loss.

    We miss visiting with Monty at our Sanford South University Hospital front desk where he would BRIGHTEN our day talking about a variety of subjects. I enjoyed talking baseball and the Minnesota Twins with Monty and he also knew a lot of trivia from the early TV shows of the 1950’s and 1960’s especially the Andy Griffith Show, it was like we had grown up in the same home; we had some good laughs about that. We also discussed some Bible verses and how they applied to our daily lives. When I was ill with West Nile Virus in August 2016 Pastor Monty visited me for an hour in my hospital room and we enjoyed our talk and he said a Prayer for me to help in my recovery. I will remember Monty fondly, too bad we did not find time to play a game of catch with the old baseball ! 🙂

  18. Phyl & Jo Putz says:

    Jo and I are sorry to have been away from the area during the time of Monty’s passing and funeral service. Our hearts a grieved for what seems from our point of view to be a premature parting. Yet, we place our trust in the Lord who holds our lives in His hands. He was a man committed to follow and teach the truth of God’s Word. We have prayed and will continue to pray for your comfort and strength.

  19. John Stolz says:

    So sorry to hear about Monte. Although he and I didn’t have much contact in the last 10 years or so, I considered Monte a dear friend, confidant, and mentor. He was the first person who took a real interest in my spiritual development. He’s the only person I have ever gotten up at 5am to meet with and have a Bible Study. I am in ministry today largely in part to Monte and his influence on my life. I still hear his voice speaking into my life even now and I am sure I will continue to hear it until I see him again in heaven.

  20. Ron Bachman says:

    I’m so sorry to hear of Monty’s passing. He was my classmate, and loyal friend, from 2nd grade through high school. My dad and his were also friends. Condolences to all who miss him

  21. Bruce Thalhuber says:

    Sorry to hear about Monty’s passing. I spent a lot of time with him at our 40th class reunion. Prayers go out to the family.

  22. Harold and Mona Schmeets says:

    Harold and I were shocked and very saddened to hear about Pastor Monty’s death. We got to know him while we were living in Fargo for a year and attending Metropolitan church. He was a wonderful man and we were inspired by his sermons as well as his friendship. We didn’t get to know Lane or Kalae, but he spoke so lovingly about both of you. I know this is a great loss, but it is comforting to know that he is in God’s presence. Our prayer is that God will give you His peace that passes all understanding.
