Dave Monlux, 70, was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend, passed away Feb. 16, 2013 in the arms of his loving wife after a battle with cancer. He was born in Salem, OR to William and Helen Monlux on Nov. 15, 1942 and graduated from Central Catholic High School in 1960.
Dave served in the Air National Guard.
He married Eva in May 1998. They had a wonderful life together, sharing in grandchildren's activities, attending concerts, plays and traveling, including many trips to Disneyland (which was Dave's escape from reality for a few days) as well as just enjoying their life together.
