    Notes 
    • From his grandson Steven Proper 28 Jul 2006
      "You probably did not know, but my grandfather is really the son of Romondo Grant. Romondo died before Monte was born and g-grandma's old school sweetheart (Horace) stepped in and they were married. My grandfather Monte loved Horace and would not use any other name other than Proper in honor of Horace -so there are a whole bunch of us that use the Proper name that are really Grant."

      From his grandson Steven Proper - 2 Aug 2006
      "This is a photo from one of many family reunions at Pinery Park in Wyoming, MI. Monte on the left and his older brother Orson on the right."

      "Notice the Detroit Tigers hat on my grandpa. He died listening to the Tigers play on the radio (he always slept that way) and was buried in either that hat or one similiar. I always remember going to Pinery park and playing on the tank when I was a kid was the thing to do. Orson would be walking around the park with his metal detector. Funny how the times that you thought very little about when your a kid become some of the best memories as you age."
