Moses Roy Monk was born January 12, 1949 at Sebastopol, Scott County, MS to his parents Henry Leroy and Dorothy Ann Shaw Monk. He passed away at his home surrounded by his loving family on Saturday, November 30, 2019 at the age of 70.
Blind from birth, Mr. Monk never allowed his handicap to be a hinderance, but he used his life as an opportunity help and serve others. He will be remembered as a hard worker and a servant of the Lord, using his abilities to sing, play the guitar and teach the Word of God to those he came in contact with, whether at the nursing home ministry or at the Cross Roads Church of God, where held membership and enjoyed the fellowship of brothers and sisters in Christ. His life testimony is summed up in the scriptures: “I love you and Jesus loves you more.” He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

He is survived his siblings: one Bobby Monk of Walnut Grove; six sisters: Liza Monk of Walnut Grove; Margie Sistrunk of Sebastopol; Mary Norwood of Union; Ida Shuler of Morton; Linda Thornsberry of Walnut Grove; one adopted sister: Sandra Burrell of Walnut Grove; and a host of nieces and nephews.
