I worked with Monroe (altho we called him "Harry", a hold over from his days in New York. I always admired his sense of humor and his common sense way of handling any and all situations.

He knew of my interest in WW II aviation and always had a story about his experiences in the 8th AF and always could answer my questions about his time in the service.

He was a good man. My thoughts are with his family.

Deepest Sympathy to the whole family, our thoughts and prayers will be with you.


RIP Monroe. You experienced first-hand the worst atrocities this world could manifest yet you never let it tarnish your spirit and golden sense of humor. It spoke volumes of your integrity and I am fortunate to have been considered a part of your family. Thank you for taking care of my Nana.

Monty is a very good friend. We worked together many years in Los Angeles. He was a very good aircraft Mechanic and a very good leader of men. I talked to him often via the internet the last few years, I will miss that.

May GOd bless him and keep him safe.
