Michael L Monk

December 31, 1949 — May 15, 2018

Michael L. "ML" Monk, 68, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family Tuesday May 15th, 2018. He was born December 31st, 1949 son of the late Edward Nolan and Marjorie Jean Herrold Monk. He worked at Anchor Hocking for 20 years as a machine operator, and UCBC for 14 years as Supervisor of the Aluminum line.
We were blessed to learn many valuable lessons from the Greatest Storyteller we ever knew.  Most tasks are “a five-minute job”, “what’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong”, “there is no I in team”, “No pain, no gain”, “Goodwill is where it’s at!” and “You can brighten someone’s day just by saying ‘Hello’!”  M.L. and Pam built a life together based on mutual support and a deep love for each other. His enthusiastic spirit was known by so many.  Everyone he met he liked and was liked by everyone.  He was an avid sports fan who loved the Indiana Hoosiers, the Cincinnati Bengals and watching any sport his kids or grandkids played.  He was everyone’s coach and his family’s biggest fan. He was the fun Dad. His favorite sport to play was golf, and boy was he good! One of his favorite places to be was out on the golf course. He also loved to bowl and was even better at that. He loved to spend time with his children as much as they loved to spend time with him. Some of the things he loved to do was teaching them every sport they wanted to learn, because he was good at everything, he taught all of his children how to be independent, but also that they could come to him for anything. I think all of us would agree our favorite thing he taught us was how to drive.
His friends were also very dear to him. He loved to go on golfing trips to Tennessee and any sporting event with them. He was the life of the party and loved to make people laugh. He loved to tell stories about all of their fun times, and if you tried to help the story along, he would say, “Now, who is telling this story?” His kind and generous nature will be missed by many.
