He departed this life Wednesday, April 1, 2015, in Lebanon North Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, in Lebanon, Missouri, at the age of ninety-two years, ten months, and one day. On August 8, 1942, he was united in marriage to Margaret L. Wright, and to this union two sons were born. He was preceded in death by his parents; and a brother, Kenneth E. Monson. Farris is survived by his loving wife of seventy-two years, Margaret, of Lebanon, Missouri; two sons, Ed Kent Monson, of Avinger, Texas, and Ronald Ogle Monson, and his wife, Betty, of Austin, Texas; a granddaughter, Kirsten Monson, of Dallas, Texas; as well as a host of other relatives and friends. He was born and raised in the Competition area, and graduated from Competition High School. He then worked at Kansas City Power and Light before entering the military. He served his country faithfully in the United States Army Medic Corps and was stationed on the USS Comfort, a hospital ship, during World War II. After being discharged from the Army, he and Margaret made their home in San Antonio, Texas, and lovingly raised their sons. Farris worked as a civil service mechanical engineer at Fort Sam Houston for a number of years. In the 1980’s, he and Margaret retired and moved to Lebanon, Missouri. Farris professed his faith in Christ early in his life and was a member and a Deacon in the First Baptist Church of San Antonio, Texas for several years. After moving to Lebanon, he became a member and a Deacon in the First Baptist Church of Lebanon, where he was very involved in church work. In his spare time he enjoyed fishing and maintaining a beautiful lawn. He also liked playing card games. His family was very important to him and he greatly enjoyed time with his sons and granddaughter. Farris was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and was a caring neighbor and friend. We celebrate his life and his accomplishments and know that his family and friends will treasure the wonderful memories he made for them during his ninety-two years.
