It is with the heaviest of hearts that the McMunn family writes this announcement. Our beloved matriarch, Mark McMunn, born April 13, 1954, passed away on Sunday night August 30, 2020. He is survived by his Wife, Debbie, their two Sons, Matt and Nick, their Wives, Bridget and Shana, and his Sister Lisa and her Husband Matt. Also, his two Nieces, Fallon and Madison, and their Husbands, Matt and Nick, and their four wonderful children. He was preceded in death by his parents Chuck and Alys McMunn, with whom we are positively sure are having a good ole’ McMunn reunion.
He was a dearly loved husband, father, and father-in-law to Debbie, Matt, Nick, Bridget and Shana. He truly loved his fur babies RJ, Jax and Cinder and his fur grandbabies, Mojo and Beija. He was a great family man and enjoyed doing anything he could with his wife and boys. Even though our hearts are filled with sorrow, we know he lived his best life by doing all the things that made him happy. A dedicated man to his trade, Mark was never one to escape the ethics of hard work, always dedicating himself to the things in life that brought him the most joy and making sure that others inherited the same drive for their own passions. He loved to be on the open
road. He cherished driving his Vette through quiet places like Garden of the Gods and through the mountains where he spent 40+ years riding his dirt bikes in Rampart Range with friends and family. Although in his later years his ambition remained high to continue to rip thunder through the Rockies it took a bit longer to recover because his philosophy when riding the trails was “go fast or don’t go at all.” As a PGA professional he loved to play and teach the game to anyone willing to learn. His passion for the game would often have him packing up his golf clubs in the trunk of the car to head to Arizona just to play a round of golf. He tried mastering the game of pool, applying the same philosophy to that of golf, where he would do his best to teach you just enough to still be able to beat you. He loved putting his dogs in the truck and taking them on visits to his favorite watering holes. He thoroughly enjoyed paying his friendship dues whenever, and wherever possible. Those were his happiest times, when he could “shoot the shit” with his friends and family over a cold drink or a warm occasion such as the holidays or a birthday. He honored his friends whether they were in agreement, or disagreement, to the very end. Once you were friends with Mark, you were friends for life.
Mark loved live jazz music and going to all types of concerts. He had an affinity for high quality sound and the equipment that delivered that sound. He was a HUGE Broncos fan and enjoyed giving all other football fans a hard time. He was the best Monday morning quarterback ever! You could not tell him otherwise either. He treasured the time spent with family and friends. Any social gathering was truly a cause for celebration, and if a cause was not present he could think up a reason, no problem. This statement rings true today as he has given us another opportunity to celebrate and rejoice over his life and memories.
Although we know his passing was sudden, Mark would not want us to be sad, he would want us to celebrate the life he shared with you all. Cheers to Mark! Our Husband, Father, Father-in-law, Brother, Uncle and Friend.
We would like you all to join us in Mark’s Celebration of Life on September 27th, 2020 at 1pm, at Castlewood Canyon State Park, 2989 S. State Highway CO-83, Franktown, CO 80116. The Celebration will be in area EF-1, EF-2 and EF-3 of the park
Sincerest thank you to all for your continued love and support,
The McMunn Family
