William Lawrence "Larry" Monahan Obituary

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of Larry Monahan on May 26 at the age of 72. Larry lived an idyllic life in Cape Coral, Florida for the past 5 years with his wife and soulmate, Melody and their 2 beloved Shelties, Shelley and Noah. He was an avid boater, fisherman, reader, gardener, sports enthusiast and lover of life. Even after living in Florida the past 5 years, Larry maintained his allegiance to the SF Giants and 49er's.

Larry's sudden death came as devastating news to all that loved him. Larry left this world doing one of the things he loved best; tending to his pristine yard in the company of his Shelties.

Larry was born in San Francisco on January 25, 1945 and was raised in Yuba City. He graduated from Yuba City High School in 1963 where he excelled in football. Larry attended the University of Idaho on a football scholarship. He returned to California and completed his college education at Sacramento State. Larry had a long and successful career with CSAA which moved him around the Bay Area. He retired after 36 years with the organization. It was while working at CSAA that he met and married Melody. They settled in Chester until their move to Florida in 2012 to be near her family.

Larry is survived by his wife, Melody of Cape Coral, sons, Kevin of Dallas, Brian (Wendy) of Vallejo; sisters, Kathleen Morgan (Malcolm) of Folsom, Ann Howard of Vacaville and Marsha Stevens (Mike) of Santa Cruz; step-daughter, Jessica Kottcamp (Dave) of Denver; two grandsons, Nate and Aiden; numerous nieces and nephews, cousins, distant relatives and lifelong friends who all knew and loved Larry. He is also survived by a brother, Dennis Monahan. Larry is preceded in death by his parents, Bill and Bebe Monahan.

As per Larry's request there will be no services. His ashes will be spread in the Gulf of Mexico at a later date.

Larry's death left us all with a huge void. He was a kind and loving soul and we are all better for having had him in our lives.
