Our Sincere Condolences
I worked with Munk for many years at Trailmobile, I kept in contact with him and Kathy after leaving via Christmas cards and birthday cards. He would stop by Caravan and drop off magazines that Kathy would save for me. He was a funny, kind generous man. One of his famous lines was this is “Mickey Mouse” so I decorated his office at Trailmobile with Mickey Mouse wall hanging etc – we had fun there. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
