Obituary for Robert J Monn Jr.

Robert “Bobby” James Monn Jr. of Fayetteville, PA entered into the presence of his Lord and Savior on November 1, 2020, after a brief battle with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia. Born on May 19, 1947, in Chambersburg, PA, he was a son of the late Robert James Monn Sr. and Emma “Kate” Hockenberry.
As a youth, growing up in Fayetteville, Bobby enjoyed spending most of his time outdoors. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. Up until his passing, Bobby enjoyed both turkey and deer hunting seasons, and spent countless hours in the woods. He looked forward to his hunting trips every year. He also participated in high school sports, namely baseball and football. His love for all high school sports carried into his adulthood. He was a loyal spectator for the Chambersburg Trojans and Greencastle Antrim Blue Devils. When he wasn’t hunting or playing sports, Bobby spent his time at the Fayetteville Volunteer Fire Department.
Bobby was a 1967 graduate of Chambersburg Area Senior High School. Shortly after high school, Bobby enlisted in the United States Air Force. He started his professional firefighting career at Eielson Air Force Base in Fairbanks, Alaska. After his time serving in the Air Force, Bobby started a career at the US Army War College in Carlisle, PA. He completed his professional career at Letterkenny Army Depot Fire Department. Throughout his professional firefighting career, Bobby remained an active volunteer for the Fayetteville Volunteer Fire Department to which he was a devoted member his entire life.
As a young man, Bobby struggled with alcohol addiction, but in 1983, Bobby made the choice to abandon his reckless and self-destructive path and began his relationship with the Lord and his journey to sobriety. Bobby regularly attended AA meetings, went through the 12 step program, and eventually became a sponsor to other members, helping them overcome their own addictions. Bobby celebrated his 37th year of sobriety in 2020.
On May 30, 1987, Bobby and Sharon (Frazer) wed and were married for 33 years. They were active members of Mount Pleasant United Brethren Church and more recently, King Street United Brethren Church. Bobby and Sharon enjoyed spending time together doing household projects, yard work, cooking, entertaining, watching movies, spending time with their grandchildren, traveling, and going to high school sporting events.
Bobby devoted his life to helping his community. A lifelong member of the Fayetteville Volunteer Fire Department, Bobby was active in every aspect of that organization, from weekly bingo nights, fundraising activities, the annual Fireman’s carnival, community dinners, and of course, the fire calls. He was passionate about serving others. His generous nature was an inspiration to all who knew him.
Those who knew Bobby, and there are many, will remember him for his dedication, strength, bravery, dependability, friendliness, sense of humor, and his great love and devotion to his family. An entire community of friends and family are mourning this sudden and unexpected loss.
He is survived by his wife, Sharon (Frazer) Monn; daughter and son-in-law Stacey (Monn) and Pierre Vudrag; his son and daughter-in-law Brett and Edie (Hagel) Monn; daughter and son-in-law Amy (Segner) and Kevin Carrozza; daughter and son-in-law Emily (Segner) and Michael Rhine; four grandchildren, Isabel and Isla Carrozza, Maura Dean and Meredith Rhine. Also surviving are his brothers and sisters, Phyllis Hart, Susan Monn, Douglas Monn, David Monn and Daniel Monn. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his aunt and uncle Walter and Julia Monn, and his grandson Michael Joseph Rhine.

A funeral service with Pastor Don Baker officiating and a fireman’s farewell will be held on Saturday, November 7th. In consideration of COVID, the service will be held outdoors under a tent on the grounds of his beloved Fayetteville Fire Company, 101 West Main Street, Fayetteville, PA 17222. The service will begin at 12:00 noon. The family will receive friends from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm prior to the service.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made in memory of Robert James Monn Jr. to the Fayetteville Volunteer Fire Company.

Bobby, or should I say “Homer”because that’s what we all called you at Letterkenny, you were one of a kind. I know your up in Heaven. I will never forget you my friend. I remember the day you showed me your AA coin and told me about your journey. I remember the day we held my moms funeral and you were there. You were a true friend.
So many good laughs and good talks about anything and everything, but mostly hunting and going to calls.
My thoughts and prayers to your wife and family. Thanks for sharing Bobby with all of us. He touched so many lives.
Also prayers to your family at Fayetteville where you were a “spoke in the wheel” and always kept things moving forward in one way or another.
Until I see you again some day my friend

Ray and I are so very sorry for the loss that the Monn family is enduring with the passing of Bobby. We know that your lives will be forever changed without his particularly endearing personality and sense of humor. We pray that our gracious God provides all of you peace of heart and mind while you tread this path to a new normal without his earthly presence as we know he is now with our Lord and Savior. Love in Christ, Brenda and Ray Earnest
