Monty Dean Cross was born on May 13, 1961 in Chickasha, Oklahoma to CE and Sondra Cross. He attended school at Sterling. He spent several years in the oil fields across Texas and Oklahoma in his youth. He and his wife Anita’s true passion was the communications industry where Monty worked in fiber optics as a supervisor and they put in a lot of the communication foundation that we know today across the U.S. primarily Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Missouri. Monty loved his job and would talk about his work and all of his friends that became life-long friends even years after he could no longer work.

He is survived by his wife, Anita Cross, of the home; his father, C.E. Cross and his wife Joy, of Elgin; 2 daughters: Dana Sanford and her husband Chris, of Ponca City and Crystal Cross and her husband Scott Strausburger, of Ponca City; 2 sons: Rodney Black and his wife Cathy, of Childress, TX and Scottie Black and his wife Crystal, of Hot Springs, AR; 1 sister, Gaylene Morris and her husband Curt, of Fletcher; 1 niece, Courtney Cross-Brown; 15 grandchildren: Tristan and Trenton Delaney, Mario and Alex Carrasco, Jackie, Pacen, and Deaton Seney, Spencer and Gunner Strausburger, Arial, Addy, and Alex Black, Tyler and Jenna Glass, and Paul Culp; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Sondra Kay Hayes; 1 brother, Craig Edwin Cross; and 1 nephew, Curty Morris.
