In Memoriam:  Keith Montonini 

Keith Montonini

July 22, 1957 – May 1, 2022

Keith Anthony Montonini, who spent more than 40 years working on the tradeshow floor, passed away on May 1. His son, Kasey, wrote on Facebook, “With a heavy heart I want to tell the community that my dad, Keith Montonini, passed away earlier this morning at his Las Vegas home. It comes as a shock but I know he was loved by so many. He loved this community so much and would have given you the shirt off of his back if you asked. If you were lucky enough to know him I am so sorry for your loss. You will be missed Pops.” 

His family wrote in his obituary that “we will remember his infectious smile, his deep love for family, but also so many friends, and clients, many of who became friends. The old cliche applies, Keith never met a stranger.  Keith worked so very hard all of his life, 40 plus years at the convention center. Keith finally retired but that only meant he had other work to do helping his family and friends.”
