Obituary for J. "ED" Monson

J. "ED"  Monson
“Ed” Monson, 73, of Greeley, CO passed away March 11, 2018 at his home surrounded by his family.

Ed was born April 19, 1944 and grew up in Henderson, CO on Monson Brothers family farm with his father Joe and mother Kathleen Monson and his two sisters, Joann and Marlene.

Upon graduating from CSU, he pursued a career in flower growing, first roses for Katayama Greenhouses, and later for Amato Greenhouses in Brighton. However, his love for farming eventually led him back to the carrot and onion fields of northern and eastern Colorado where he found his life's work farming with his father and sister at Monson Bros. Company.

Upon retiring from farming, he enjoyed traveling about the country, scouting crops for the Michael Cutler Produce Company of Scranton, PA. Ed married his high school sweetheart, Sharon Amato, and they raised their children in Brighton, Galeton, and Greeley. Martin his son and wife Amy blessed Ed with two grandchildren, and Aundrea his daughter and husband Castulo Venegas blessed him with five grandchildren.

His family brought him great joy. He also found joy in golfing every day that the weather permitted, summer or winter. Ed enjoyed studying the Bible and praised his Lord for each new day, constantly asking guidance not only for himself, but also for his entire family. Ed knew he had eternal life, and due to his illness, he was ready to step into phase two of his eternal life.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

A Life Celebration Service will be held 2:30 P.M. Friday March 16, 2018 at St. Paul’s Congregational Church, 1525 43rd Avenue, Greeley, CO. Interment will follow at Linn Grove Cemetery.
