I have seldom known Pat Monahan’s equal. To say he was a man of integrity is an understatement.

He wore his integrity as a badge on his sleeve. He spoke clearly and straight on all issues. He had no time for “wishy-washy” talk, or speaking out of “both sides of the mouth”. He did not say something because he thought it would please you. He held strong clear opinions because he considered them to be correct. They were made after listening to or considering all sides of an argument; whether those opinions were popular or not made absolutely no difference to him.
