Joseph Paul Monk (Joe Paul), age 69, died on Tuesday, December 11th, 2018 in Fort Worth, Tx. Born July 24th, 1949, in Royse City, Tx, he was a father, brother and friend to many.

Joe Paul is survived by his daughter Annette Langford and her husband Charles Langford, son Jonathan Paul Monk and his wife Jennifer Monk, brother Michael Monk and his wife Teresa Monk, four grandchildren, Jordan Langford, Hannah Langford, Madilyn Monk and Jensen Paul Monk, niece Sondra Kay Stewart, nephews David Bailey and Brandon Monk and great niece Michaela Larson.
