Hubert Clifford Munroe
Birth: Apr. 12, 1911
Geneva County
Alabama, USA
Death: Oct. 27, 1969
Eatonton
Putnam County
Georgia, USA

Hubert Clifford Munroe, was born on April 12, 1911, in Geneva County, Alabama to Virgil Maurice Munroe and Carrie Lou Emma Brown Munroe. Not long after his birth, the family moved to Haralson County, Georgia. He was the oldest of seven children who grew to be a tall, lanky man with light blue eyes and brown hair.

Grandpa married my grandmother, Rosie Irene Smith, in 1937. Together, they had two [still living] children and raised them in Haralson County.

He was a hard worker and a "jack of all trades" who enjoyed working with his hands. He, like many of the Munroes, had great talent working with wood and building things. He was also good at taking items like metal coins or bolts and making very beautiful rings with them. He was a farmer and a construction worker for the J.B. McCrary Company which built water treatment plants. His job with the construction company kept Grandpa and Granny moving frequently as jobs were finished and new jobs begun in other cities and states. They lived in a trailer, and when it came time to move, they would pack up and take their home with them.

Some of my most vivid memories of Grandpa involve watching him while he was watching Saturday night wrestling. I don't believe I've ever seen a man enjoy any television show more than he did his wrestling. Even at my young age, I remember thinking his cheers or jeers directed toward the television on those nights being quite comical. He took wrestling very seriously, and good luck to anyone who dared suggest those shows were staged or phony!

Grandpa had his first heart attack when he was in his early 50s. His second heart attack happened in Eatonton, Georgia in 1969 while he was on his lunch break at work. Sadly, he passed away before anyone realized what had happened. His funeral was held in Bremen, Georgia, and he was buried at the small Smith family cemetery bordering Bremen City Cemetery. His obituary appeared in The Bremen Gateway, Bremen, Georgia on November 6, 1969 on page 4.
