Alton E. Monson, 90
Alton Eugene Monson, 90, of Ellsworth, Wis., passed away on Friday, May 12, 2017 at the Atrium Post Acute Care Center, Ellsworth.
Al was born October 25, 1926 in Red Wing, Minn., to Elmer and Mabel Monson. He graduated from Ellsworth High School, class of 1944 and was a lifelong farmer. After retiring, Al wintered in Arizona where he enjoyed playing pool, cards, and shuffleboard. He loved to travel, golf, and watch sports, especially the Packers. One of his favorite pass times was meeting people, hearing their stories, and visiting with them. He would liven up a room with his sense of humor and will be remembered fondly.

He was preceded in death by his parents; two sisters, Marion Westfield and Irene Boettcher; and nephew, Donald Westfield.
