He was also active with the Chamber of Commerce. He served on the schools system's Energy Committee and was a member of the Alternate Revenue Committee for the Moore County Summit.
Before going to work for DuPont, Munro served in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Korean War. He earned a bachelor's degree in economics from Delaware University. He took courses in facilitation, quality management, time management, computer science and related subjects at Columbia University and other four-year schools. He belonged to numerous local organizations and does volunteer work for them.
Friends are invited to a Celebration of Life at his home from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday. Munro will be buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in his hometown of Wellsville, N.Y.
