Obituary for Jack Martyn Munroe

Jack Martyn Munroe, 77, passed away peacefully on June 15, 2024, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Jack was born August 6, 1946, in Quincy, Florida, to Suzanne Huff Munroe and Linton Stubbs Munroe, Jr. He spent his life in Quincy, Florida, where his lifelong friendships were created and his antics and fun were abundant. Even as a little boy, his quick wit was evident. He was a 1964 graduate of Quincy High School. He went on to attend his beloved University of Florida, where he obtained a degree in journalism. While in Gainesville, he was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. Jack was a member of the ROTC while at the University of Florida, and joined the army after college. He was stationed at Fort Benning in Columbus, Georgia, and was a 1st Lt. upon completion of his service there.

After returning to Quincy, Jack worked for Fletcher-Cantey Menswear for many years until its closing in 1994, including opening two stores in Tallahassee. He then worked in the telecom industry, in both Tallahassee and Quincy, until his retirement. He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Quincy, Florida.

Jack's bigger than life personality was one of the best parts of him. He loved golf, playing cards, boiled peanuts and the Gators. He always said “animals, kids and old people like me a lot,” and he was right. He was funny, charming, witty, had perfect comedic timing and because of it, he was loved by so many. He loved gathering with dear friends at Lake Talquin, grilling steaks, watching sports and hosting annual Kentucky Derby parties. He loved life. He loved his family and his friends. He worked hard and he made people feel special.

Jack is preceded in death by his wife, Kecia, and his parents Sue and Stubby Munroe, and his faithful canine companion, sweet Waylon. He is survived by his daughters Alicia Munroe, Mexico Beach, Florida; Grayson Touchton of Tallahassee, Florida; Alexa Seward (Brad) and a son Ainsley Taylor (Breezy) of Alabama. He is also survived by three siblings: Sue Lynn Krinos, Laurin Sellers (Phil), and Frank Carter Munroe (Annemarie). He loved his grandchildren: Hannah Touchton, Breeley and Blakeley Taylor, Kameron, Wyatt and Hunter Seward. His nieces and nephews were a big part of his life: Holly Munroe Cohen (Adam), George Carter Munroe (Theresa), Hadley Sellers, Fletcher Davidson (Alisa) and Anne Davidson, and his great niece and nephew Henry and Lucy Cohen.

Daddy always said there were three things people needed in life: “something to do, someone to love and something to look forward to.” We wholeheartedly agree. When saying goodbye on the phone or in person, he always ended with: “I love you more.” His daughters, Alicia and Grayson, were by his side in his final weeks…we love YOU more, daddy.

At a later date a celebration of life will be held for both him and Kecia. Charles McClellan Funeral Home is handling arrangements. The nurses and caregivers at the Big Bend Hospice House of Tallahassee provided the family with amazing support, care and love. We are so thankful for their service and friendship. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to:

Big Bend Hospice Foundation 1723 Mahan Center Blvd. Tallahassee, FL 32308
