Monte E. Tunks
June 5, 2015
Monte Tunks died Saturday, May 23, 2015 at St Mary's from pneumonia. He was born and raised on a cattle ranch in Nucla, CO. He lived in Craig for many years doing concrete work.
As he lay in a coma in I.C.U. for a month – he woke up long enough to receive Jesus Christ from Pastor Linda Taylor – thank you!
He leaves behind the love of his life, his daughter, Emily Tunks, stepchildren, Fawn and Landon Melquist, and Cacey Hoffman of Phoenix, AZ, and Colt Hoffman of Craig, CO, and his former wife Lorna Mannon of Craig, CO. His funeral is Saturday, June 6, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. at the Norwood Cemetery in Norwood, CO.
Please remember that alcoholism is a disease. It takes over and robs you of your life, your family, your last breath. Think before you drink.
