Patrick Terry Monahan
It is with great sadness that the Monahan family announces the passing of Patrick Terry Monahan, age 71, on November 13, 2019 after prolonged illnesses caused by Agent Orange exposure during his service in the Vietnam War.

While attending Penn State he chose to honor his country and proudly served in the US Army in Vietnam. Following his tour of duty, he attended DuBois Business College under the GI Bill and graduated with a degree in accounting. He was employed as an accountant in both the retail and hotel industries.
Terry was happily married to his wife Penny for 49 years and was a devoted father to their son Michael. He not only loved music, chess and all sports, especially the Steelers, he also loved spending time with his brothers, Tom and Dan, his many cousins, In-laws, nieces and nephews. He was known by his friends and family as a gentle man who loved his family and many pets.
Terry is survived by his wife, Marion "Penny" (Matthews) Monahan of Conneaut Lake, PA, brothers Daniel and his wife Cathy Monahan of Kannapolis, NC, and Thomas and his wife Dawnene Monahan of Rockton, PA.
