Anthony Jerome Monday was born on May 13, 1954 in Birmingham, Alabama to the late Jones and Henrietta Hill Monday. He passed away on October 15, 2019. He graduated from Carver High School-Birmingham. He was a proud graduate of Texas College in Tyler, Tx. He was united holy matrimony to Rachel Thurman on February 25, 1980 and to this union two children were born.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Cardius Monday, Roderick Monday, Clifford Monday and nephew, Andre Monday.

He was a loving father, grandfather, brother, friend, mentor and known to many as “Coach.” He was anticipating the birth of his great-granddaughter.

Duck you were more like a brother to my husband Butch than a cousin. We are so saddened but grateful too that we were able to see you at Desi’s wedding just two weeks ago. Your smile could always light up a room. Our sincere condolences to you Rachel and your entire family. May God give you his grace and grant you peace in the days ahead. Though I’m unable to attend his memorial service today, Duck and everyone are in my heart.
