September 28, 1935October 4, 2021

Weston Monks, 86, died at home peacefully surrounded by his wife and children on October 4, 2021.

Weston was born in South Weymouth and was the son of the late William and Elinore Monks of Plymouth MA. Weston graduated from Weymouth High School in 1953. His first job was framing houses. At 22, he joined the Airforce. After serving he worked for New England Bell for 30 years. Weston married Marylou Driscoll in 1965. The couple raised their four daughters in Brewster, MA.

In his free time, Weston loved wood working and construction. He built many homes throughout the Cape. He enjoyed making reproduction furniture and weaving Nantucket baskets using traditional techniques. Weston was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He was generous with his time and talent and to quote his grandson Nate, “He set the bar high.” He will be greatly missed and remembered by his family and friends.

Weston enjoyed walks in the woods, spending time in Maine, and history. He especially loved the local history of Cape Cod which is evident in the time, effort, and craftsmanship he gave to the restoration of the Cobb House on Lower Road in Brewster.

A wake will be held on Thursday, October 7, between the hours of 4 - 7 p.m., at Doane, Beal & Ames Funeral Home, 729 Route 134 in Dennis, MA.

Marylou, Lauren, Alison, Courtney, Stacy,
We are so, so sorry for your loss. Wes was the best. The Monks family were our first friends when we moved to Brewster. We have countless memories beginning with Wes buying and installing a antenna, sharing dinners at each other homes. Donuts on Sunday mornings. Building a teepee for Megan’s bday. Finding us the perfect runway dog. Building projects were endless. Teaching us all about growing flowers. Opening scallops together. Taking us on our first cranberry harvest. Sorry that we are away and can’t hug each of you in person. Most importantly opening your hearts and lives for us to share.
