Hans Monroy was a man of great intelligence, and I had the honor of learning from him.

Hans showed me through his actions, that kindness, humor, patience, understanding and forethought were choices, and that to be successful, needed to become habits.

I met Hans during an interview on Feb 20, 2018, then Months later I became his Assistant at AFN Logistics.
Right from the beginning we got along and for the next year I sat next to Hans and learned the ins and outs of all his business and what made him successful. Under his guidance I went from an assistant to a full sales rep like him, in just five months, when it typically takes eight months to a year!
Before his week-long trip to Hawaii, I wrote him a thank you note with a gift:
“Dear Hans,
Thank you for your patience and guidance while being my mentor.
You could have phoned it in or gotten pissed at me, but you never did, not even for a day.
I literally cannot repay you for your help.
The best pictures tell a story, hope you capture some good ones.
Hopefully these will help you on your hike or from your boat.”
- along with the letter were a pair of binoculars.
When he returned, he was very tan and he gave me an unexpected gift in return, a small black and white tiki statue. I was touched by this, and it shows just the kind of guy that Hans was.
I went home and displayed the tiki proudly in my display case and sent him a picture as a way of showing my appreciation.
Eventually, I left the company and moved back to my home state of Minnesota to be closer to family in May 2019.

Even though I cannot be there in person to pay my respects and celebrate Hans’ life, I know that the most important thing is to share his story and remember him.
I carry with me all the spoken and unspoken lessons that Hans taught me that year.
I will always remember the man who never gave up on me, not even for a day.

A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on. Surely he will not be forgotten. I’m glad I had the opportunity to know you at AFN/GTZ. Rest peacefully, Hans.

My deepest condolences to the Monroy Family. I didn't meet Hans in person. I was one of his carriers from PA. He always took care of us, from day one he made me feel like I was not just a carrier for him, I was part of his family. Knowing that you are not here breaks my heart into pieces. I'm going to miss your calls, just because to make sure I was ok. I feel guilty I couldn't answer your last call that day. You were amazing, your kindness and loving personality will always be remembered. This is the last picture you shared with me before starting at your new job. I will miss you!

My condolences and prayers go out to the Monroy family. Over the last 7 years Hans has been Hoss Trucking Corporation's broker and team player. Truly, I will miss the daily 8am and multiple calls throughout the day to plan out the upcoming week. He was always encouraging and uplifting. Nothing but good things can be spoken from our times spent. Hans has been a great business partner and friend whom we will certainly miss. Until our heavenly meet, rest in peace my friend.

Oh Hans, where do I start? Your heart was pure love homie. I don’t think you had a bad bone in your body. Working with you was so fun and you always had a smile to share with us on the most stressful of days. Even at kickball games, you’d be this awesome energy sliding around falling in the slick grass. Ordering pizza for the squad so we could eat, you making fun of my pepperoni beach towel. All those little things Hans. You may have thought it was nothing but those tiny moves stack up. You’re stand taller than most men I know Hans ❤️ You were a real one. Que descanses en paz amigo. I know you loved when I would bust out in Spanish out of nowhere. I’ll miss you and your random LinkedIn joke messages and texts. My only regret is not catching up on the regular like we said we should. TQM.

I can't understand how a tragedy like this could happen to such an amazing person. You taught me and so many others at AFN how to do things the right way. Our daily ping pong games were always the highlight of my work day. So many memorable shots and inside jokes that had us both crying laughing half the time. I'm gonna miss you a ton. Thank you for being a great coworker and an even better friend.
