He was born on April 15, 1943, to Vincent A. Monforte Sr. and Grace L. (Tidball) Monforte and graduated from Cherry Creek High in Denver. At Princeton he played football, majored in chemical engineering, and took his meals at Cannon. Upon graduation he was commissioned as a naval aviator, earning air medals including the Navy Unit Commendation Air Medal relating to his Vietnam service, during which he flew the P-3 Orion aircraft. After his discharge he flew for Continental Airlines for 35 years domestically and internationally, retiring as a captain flying the Boeing 777.
During retirement Vince and his wife, Helene, traveled widely in their motorhome with family and enjoyed life. Whether at home or on the road, he enjoyed playing golf. A particularly rewarding hobby was his interest in investing in the stock market.
Vince is survived by Helene; two daughters, Maria Browning and husband Tony, and Julie Floyd and husband Blake; and grandsons Grady Browning and James and Jackson Floyd. The class sends its condolences to all.
