Pro sound specialist Monte Wise passed away

Bosch’s Communications Systems Division announces the passing of Monte Wise, Systems Applications Specialist, Pro Sound, for Bosch’s Communications Systems Division. Monte’s "golden ears" were second to none in the pro audio industry, and he helped perfect thousands of sound systems across the Americas. A model for others, Monte’s care for our customers was never-ending. No matter what the time of day, he went to extreme lengths to ensure their happiness. For many, Monte was a mentor who improved and helped shape their businesses.
Always on the go, always smiling and always gracious and patient, Monte’s hands-on know-how was an essential part of Electro-Voice, a company whose heritage he loved dearly, and of whose success he was a driving force. Monte had tons of talent, but he also had the charisma to back it up.
Though a masterful sound system technician, Monte always thought like a musician. A well-known face in his adopted hometown of Austin, Texas, Monte was always ready to pick up an acoustic guitar and sing. In work and in play, Monte always delivered, and it always had to sound superb, of course. His performances at company get-togethers will be fondly remembered.
"The entire Bosch family extends its heartfelt condolences to Monte’s friends and family, especially his wife Natalie and daughters Shannon, Rebecca and Megan. There will never be another like Monte."
