We are very sorry to share news of the passing of an integral member of the Montgomery Veterans Memorial Committee family, former Montgomery Mayor Robert Kress, on April 17, 2018.  Please follow this link to his obituary: https://memorials.bakerpostfh.com/robert-kress/3487023/obituary.php

Mr. Kress is fondly remembered and greatly appreciated for his many, many years of active volunteer service to Montgomery Township.  These included his tireless work from the very beginning in 1991 to fundraise for and with great joy at last, to oversee the construction of the Montgomery Veterans Memorial in 2011.  He was also active in developing the Veterans Day Observance Program, a well-attended event honoring our veterans, which has been held every year since the Memorial was built on Veterans Day, November 11th. He will be missed.
