“Mon,” as he was affectionately called, loved drag racing and tinkering with his old truck. He was an entertainer and loved to have a good time. He enjoyed making others smile. Mon had a big heart and loved to help others in need. Anyone who knew him experienced his love and his talent for bringing joy to others. He was never a stranger to anyone he met. However, his greatest joys were his nephews, Connor and Carson. While he loved making others smile, it was his nephews who brought out his bright smile.
