Monte headed up the Laser Communication Division at McDonnell-Douglas for many years and later became an entrepreneur as CEO of Ultradata Systems. Harriet received a degree in education from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and worked in market research. The couple’s children are Dr. Ryia Ross-Peterson (Mark), Diane Myers Stayton (John), and Ethan Ross (Miriam). Their grandchildren are Jake Peterson, April Myers, Gabriella and Julia Ross. 

The couple celebrated their anniversary with a blessing from Rabbi James Stone Goodman at their beloved synagogue, Neve Shalom.
