Patrick "Pat" L. Monfort, 71, Suring, WI died Wednesday November 15, 2023 surrounded by family following a brief illness with lung cancer.
He was born October 17, 1952 in Oconto Falls, WI, to Richard and Margaret (Buege) Monfort. He proudly retired in 1996 from the U. S. Army including activation for the Gulf War in 1991.
On June 12, 1976, he married Joyce (Hansen) in Klondike, WI. They lived in Green Bay where they had two children, Lisa and Alex. He was very proud of them and loved time together. Pat and Joyce later moved to the Suring area in 2004.
Pat and Joyce traveled often with Kay and Al and enjoyed cruising to St. Thomas. Pat enjoyed reading and watching movies about military history, and spent over 50 years hunting white tail deer. He was happy doing anything with his four grandsons, including teaching them how to play cribbage, picking apples on the property, spending time outside, and traveling to see them. He often wrote letters to them and his brother, Mike. He was his closest brother in age and they shared a life-long friendship and bond and many shared interests.
