Beloved husband of Brenda Gates- Monasch for 34 years, loving father of David-Michael (Glenda) Monasch, Miriam Monasch (Kathy Johnson), Naomi and Talya Gates- Monasch; adoring grandfather of Mio Monasch, dear brother of Eva Mass and many treasured nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

As he wished, in lieu of flowers the family requests donations to either of the two local organizations he served as President: the Northern California Community Loan Fund, or the Marin Interfaith Council.
