It’s been a year since Monty Brinson, Kim Richard’s ex-husband, lost his battle with lung cancer at the age of 58. Though only married for three years (1985-1988), the couple remained close through the years. Kim even took Monty into her home as he went through treatment.
Kim posted a memorial on Instagram:
“Missing You today Monty. My Best Friend, I love you with all my heart & soul. I cherish each & every memory we shared. I am definitely the most blessed girl in world to have had you in my life! I still feel your Love, Strength & Courage from above. Thank you for choosing me. I love you always & forever….”

The two shared a daughter, Brooke Wiederhorn, who gave birth to her first child last September. Brooke also wrote a heartfelt memorial, posting:
“I feel like it was just yesterday that I heard your voice for the last time.. Can’t believe it’s already been one year since you left us. I miss you every day. I love you dad.”
Taking care of Monty was one of the reasons Kim gave for slipping in her sobriety. But now she says she’s more determined than ever to stay sober, so that she can be a part of her grandson, Hucksley’s life.
