A gathering of family and friends will be from 2 to 3pm on Sunday, May 5, at St. Mary’s Parish Hall in Orange, followed by a memorial service at 3pm.  The family will hold a private service to inter his ashes in St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery.  Cremation is being arranged by Dorman Funeral Home of Orange.  The guest book may be accessed at

Born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada on January 2, 1927, Pat was the son of Thomas John Monogue and Catherine Winnifred Cassin.  He married Loretta Marshall in Hamilton on October 23, 1948.  He moved to Orange with his wife and children in 1964 to work for Big Three industries and retired from there as the Area Plant Manager in 1992.  Despite having limited formal education, he became a well-respected specialist in the industrial gas field.  Pat’s personality was bigger than life and he always had a joke or story to tell.  He loved to spend time with his family and enjoyed a good game of golf.  For many years, he was a daily member of the “Herd” at Sunset Grove Country Club along with his best friend, Ray Dalsasso.  Together they also enjoyed their frequent trips to the area’s horse races.  Pat loved to watch all sports, eat shrimp, and always had a soft spot for his native country, Canada.  Following Loretta’s death, he married Wanda Ferguson on January 4, 2003 in Orange, Texas and together they shared 10 happy years.  For the past 9 months, Pat’s health has been failing, and he lived first at Sabine House and then at Answered Prayer in Roselawn.

Pat is survived by his wife, Wanda of Orange; daughter, Pat Balkcom and husband, Jerry, of Montpelier, Vermont; daughter, MaryEllen Monogue of Ruckersville, Virginia; son, Dan Monogue and wife, Cindy, of McKinney, Texas;  son, Marty Monogue, of Orange; sisters, Betty and Catherine, of Hamilton, Ontario; grandchildren, Devin and Kyle Balkcom, Casey and Patrick Kothe, Danielle, Maggie, and Kelley Mongue; great-granddaughters, Katey Kothe and Zela Balkcom; and many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by two sisters, Mary Liss and Madelyn Daly of Hamilton, Ontario, and infant son, John Monogue.

The family would like to extend their deep appreciation to the wonderful caregivers at Sabine House, Answered Prayer, and Southeast Texas Hospice.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Southeast Texas Hospice, 912 W. Cherry, Orange, Texas 77630.
