In memory of
Michael Anthony "Mike" Montalbano
Michael "Mike" Anthony Montalbano passed away at his home in Mandeville, on Tuesday, August 6, 2019. He was 64 years of age. He was the beloved husband for 33 years of Anne Mesman Montalbano; loving father of Sean Fox (Tina), Scott Montalbano (Katelyn), Katie McCulloch (Alex), and the late infant, Nicholas Michael Montalbano; "Pappy" to Payton, Bronx, Scarlett, Alec, and Memphis; and brother of Debby Jolissaint (Greg), Mark Montalbano, Steve Montalbano (Carrel), David Montalbano (Julie), Melanie Sprague (Jerry), and the late Nino Montalbano.

He was a graduate of John F. Kennedy High School, attended Delgado Community College and University of New Orleans. Mike was in the finance and mortgage business for over 30 years. In his time as a lender, he was able to help so many people achieve the dream of buying a home. Mike was a devoted family man, and his greatest joy in life was the gift of being "Pappy". He was a "dedicated" fan of the Saints and L.S.U. Mike enjoyed Jazz Fest, Mardi Gras, playing golf, and most of all Christmas, because of his love of giving.
