Monte Madison, 69, of Rapid City, South Dakota, passed away on January 31, 2024, after a brief battle with cancer. He passed peacefully surrounded by his family.
Monte was born December 10, 1954, in Rapid City, South Dakota to Stanley and Marilynn (Hayes) Madison. He attended Doty School, West Junior High and Stevens High School. After graduation, he met the love of his life, Rita Richardson and they married December 20, 1975. Their union was blessed with three daughters; Andrea, Bryana and Kaley.
Monte worked as a carpenter, building and designing residential homes in the area. His favorite build was the home in which he raised his family. He also worked at the Civic Center as a Sound Engineer and rigger for over 30 years. Monte’s passion was music. He played in many of the top area bands which included Straw Dogs, Ivory, Ambush, Madison Avenue, and the Abbey Road Tribute Band. His love of music led him to create his own sound company, Star Mountain Recording Studios and then the Madison Sound Production Company.
In addition, Monte loved his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He made it his personal mission to share that joyous relationship with everyone. It is a source of great comfort to his loving family and friends, knowing that he is now enjoying the presence of his Lord face to face.
Monte is survived by his wife Rita, daughters Andrea, Bryana and Kaley, eight grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews, a brother, Michael Madison, and a sister, Mavis Madison. He was preceded in death by his parents.
