Mark used to enjoy golfing with his family and friends whenever the opportunity presented itself. Undoubtedly, his sense of humor and ability to laugh at 'bad' shots helped everyone in his foursome relax and have a great time. The image of his vibrant smile, backwards baseball cap (always with well-duckbilled brim) and gaseous laugh will leave an indelible impression in our minds.
In an effort to remember Mark and raise money for a memorial fund in his name, our family hosted the 1st Annual Mark A. Monaco Memorial Golf Tournament on Saturday, July 31, 1999 at Niagara County Golf Course. Guests and golfers traveled for miles to attend the event which featured golfing, food and refreshments, door prizes, a Chinese Auction, 50/50 raffle, a putting contest and mixed bag of Western New York weather. We hope that everyone enjoyed attending the tournament because it was a great success due to your participation and that of our sponsors and donors.
