Jack Monasmith, 79, of Georgetown, Texas passed away on Sunday, November 11, 2018. He was born on December 20, 1938 to parents Ervy and Dorothy Monasmith in the city of Findlay, Ohio. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Tiffin University in Tiffin, Ohio and worked 34 years for the IRS. He was the Branch Chief of the Exam Division.
Jack was a loving husband, father, and grandfather, whose priority in life was the happiness of his family. It all started with the love he had for his bride of 54 years, Kay. They married on November 28, 1964 in North Baltimore, Ohio. He adored his wife and best friend.
Second only to his love of family was his love of golf. Only family events would keep him off the golf course. One of his other joys in life was coaching baseball. He truly enjoyed coaching kids for years, and then later in life, watching his grandkids play sports. Jack was a people person. He had no problem talking to friends and strangers alike, always bringing a smile to the face of everyone he met.
Jack is survived by his wife, Jean Kay Monasmith; his sons: Bradley Monasmith, David Monasmith and his wife Monica, and Mark Monasmith and his wife Holly; his grandchildren: Ethan, Gracelyn, Hudson, Emily, and Caleb; his sister, Mary Jo Bundy; and his brother, Thomas Monasmith.
He was preceded in death by his father, Ervy Monasmith; his mother, Dorothy Monasmith; and his sister, Arlene Bonner.
The family would like to thank the doctors of Austin Heart for all their care and concern: Dr. Chance Conner, Dr. Jerry Gilbert, Dr. Jeffrey Whitehill, and Dr. Jerome Thomas.

Jack was a member of the Class of ’56. I remember him as a pitcher on the NBHS baseball team and as an adult being an outstanding golfer and a person possessing a quick smile. He helped in the early years of the Findlay youth golf league. I was fortunate to have his oldest son, Brad, in Cub Scouts. It seems to me he wrote for a national golf magazine(?) I am sorry to hear of his passing.
