Russell Allan Monk, age 55, of Terrell, Texas, passed away at Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, surrounded by his family on Wednesday, November 1, 2017. Russell was born in Dallas County on October 2, 1962, to Benny and Arneta Monk. He was a 1981 graduate of Terrell High School; he then went on to receive a degree in telecommunications. He loved dogs, the occasional blackjack game, and watching Fox News Channel. Russell was Baptist by faith. He was preceded in death by his father Benny. He is survived by his son Joshua Monk and wife Ashley; his mother Arneta Monk; his grandmother Verniece Mann; his sister Barbara Mamo and husband John; his brother Jim Monk and wife Connie; and nieces Diane Ramsey, Lisa Mamo, and Monica Burns. For 17 years, Russell bravely met the challenge that his multiple sclerosis handed him, and he never complained. He was much loved and will be greatly missed by his family and those who loved him. Russell will be interred at Grove Hill Cemetery in Dallas. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Russell’s name to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
