I am so sorry to hear that Monk has passeed away. My prayers are with his family during this time.I will have a very fond memory of this past July at the golf outing during the reunion. Monk and I rode in the same cart and talked of the great times we had at Mark Smith. That day will forever be a great memory with me.

I was saddened to learn about Monk's passing. We played on the foofball team together and Monk was always a joy to be around. Everyone liked Monk and he will surely be missed. My sincere condolences go out to his friends and family.

I am so very sorry to hear of Monk's passing.  I considered him a good friend.  I am so glad he got married.  The last time I talked to him (1967 reunion) he said he was considering it.  I told him "life is too short, go for it".  I'm sorry his life was too short.  My condolences to his family.
