In Memory of
Frank A. Munroe
January 23, 1930 - July 18, 2016
Frank Munroe, of Seabeck, enjoyed a great life full of family and friends. He graduated from the Severn School in Severna Park, Maryland and joined the Navy at 17 years old. He had a distinguished 30-year career that included multiple submarine deployments and command of the Navy Astronautics Group in Wahiawa, Hawaii.
He retired from the Navy in 1977 but definitely didn't become sedentary. Always ready to take on administrative and treasurer duties, he remained active in St. Paul's Episcopal Church, the Kitsap Rifle & Revolver Club and Quail Park, his retirement community. He helped to organize many Navy Vessel reunions, most notably the U.S.S. Sargo Nuclear Submarine.
His first wife, Mary Munroe, passed in 1995. In 1997, he married his second wife, Helen Degarmo Stone. They created a beautiful home in Olalla that lovingly welcomed large groups of family and friends. Helen passed in 2010 and he moved to Lynnwood until his death.
He was pre-deceased by his son, Gerald Stone. He is survived by his son, Dean Stone; daughter, Sandra Newton; and son, Roland Munroe; and their spouses: Connie Stone, Lori Stone, Jon Newton and Erica Munroe. He leaves behind six grandchildren: Riley Stone, Nicole Newton, Sara Newton, Jacob Newton, Madeleine Munroe and Sebastian Munroe.
