      ĞiğVictor G. Monroe

      Victor G. Monroe was quite a remarkable man. Physically, at 89 he was spry and active until almost the very end. Mentally, he had a quick, keen mind. Spiritually, he helped found a church. It is hard to beat that list.

      And as to public service, few communities have many who are as busy. It will be difficult for a whole host of people around here to become accustomed to not seeing him or reading about his activities.Ğ/iğ
