ForeverMissed
Joseph Benard (J.B.) Monzella III, born March 13, 1944, peacefully went to be with the Eternal Father on March 14, 2020 at the age of 76. J.B. was preceded in death by his father Joseph Benard (J.B.) Monzella II and his mother Mary Scalici Monzella. J.B. is survived by his wife of 52 years, Lynn Baker Monzella; three daughters: Monica Monzella Dodd (Aaron Conley), Melissa Monzella Price (John), and Manda Monzella Luccasen (Rusty); four grandchildren: Annie Dodd, Russell Luccasen, A.J. Luccasen, and Piper Luccasen; and sister Judy Monzella Mitchell (Tom). J.B., a real estate appraiser of 40 years, was a resident of Hoover, AL and a life-long member of Prince of Peace Catholic Church. A graduate of Ensley High School and Auburn University, J.B. adored fishing, Auburn Football, giving life lessons, and above all his grandchildren. J.B. never went a day without bragging about his grandchildren and their latest accomplishments, telling anyone that would listen. J.B. and his wife Lynn spent all of their days together; where you found one, you found the other. J.B. was a firm believer in Christ, to whom he credits all of his blessings. A friend to all, J.B., never met a stranger and was able to put a smile on anyone’s face.

I was shocked to hear about J.B. this morning while streaming mass. Don passed two years ago Feb. which does not seem possible. I have lost all contact with his kids. If there is anything I can do to help, please feel free to call. I am praying for you and your family. Noone knows how this feels when you lose your spouse and best friend. However, I am confident that J.B. and Don are rejoicing with the angels and ones gone before them. God bless. 2054368083.

J.B. was my nephew and one of the greatest persons I’ve ever known. He was a positive influence on so many people and a valued member of our family. Every member of the Monzella family, and an untold number of others, will miss him. RIP, J.B.
