Danny was born April 20, 1964 in Franklin, Kentucky to Arthur Daniel “Sonny” Monroe and the late Judy Gray Lamb Monroe. He was a graduate of Franklin-Simpson High School and Western Kentucky University and a member of Sigma Chi fraternity.
Danny is survived by his father, wife Jamy Shearouse Monroe, son Wren Monroe, daughter Tatum Monroe, brother Troy Monroe (Laura), sister Cristi Monroe Freese (Dax), father-in-law Jimmy Shearouse and mother-in-law Judy Shearouse, who recently passed away; nieces and nephew, Peri and Addison Monroe, Nash and Leighton Freese, a brother-in-law Jay Shearouse (Becky) and their daughter Samantha; and his much loved dogs, Ziggy and Marley. He is also survived by many aunts, cousins and a host of lifelong friends who were more like family.
Danny lived life to the fullest with a huge smile and a contagious laugh that would light up any room. He was a friend to many and a friend for life for all. Whether attending the annual "Franklin Militia" Dove Hunt or a drink at Tybee Time, you were sure to see that tanned friend as he greeted you with a big hug. He was the life of every party. He loved spending time with his family. Jamy was the love of his life. Wren and Tatum were his world. And being with family in Franklin turned him into a little kid on Christmas morning. Every visit "home" involved a banana milkshake and baby burgers from Frosty Freeze. Danny was a lifelong Kentucky fan. He loved to cook, dove hunt, drink a cold one and spend all his extra time at the beach . He found a perfect home on Tybee Island where he attended Tybee Bar Church and made new friends everywhere he went.
In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to the charity that is near and dear to your heart, in memory of Danny.
