He was born Dec. 31, 1923, in Sherman, the son of Roger W. Munch Sr. and Carolyn Durgy Munch.
He was employed by Ashland Chemical Co. in research and engineering positions. He retired as an executive in the Ashland Chemical structure. While at Ashland, he was the recipient of many patents, both in military and civilian areas, involving phenolic resins.
He was a first officer and pilot on a B-24 Liberator from Karachi, India, to Kunming, China (the Hump), loaded with gasoline to supply P-51 fighters, who were active over the Japanese shipping lanes between China and Japan.
He served four years on active duty as captain and because of his love for the B-24, he remained in the Air Force Reserves for many years, rising in the ranks.
Mr. Munch is survived by his wife, Marie Louise Savastano; a daughter, Elizabeth Ann Munch Mard; a grandson, Kenneth Chris Mard III and his wife, Allyson M. Mard; a brother, Roger W. Munch Jr.; and several nieces and nephews.
