Liam Waylan Lynch Monforte

Liam Waylan Lynch Monforte of Cleveland passed away on August 13, 2019, in Cleveland, Oklahoma. He was born on August 25, 1999, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is the son of Stacie Monforte of Cleveland. He grew up in Cleveland, where he attended public school, graduating with the Class of 2017. He made many friends, all of whom meant so much to him. He would often talk about their lunch conversations and recreation, such as throwing around the football. He was quiet and shy when around most, so it was commonplace for him to simply sit back, listen, and laugh. However, at home, he was talkative and could be loud when he wanted to. He had a kind heart, willing to help with whatever he could and always holding the door open for people. He was protective of his family. He always acted as the peacemaker, ensuring that everyone got along.

He loved the outdoors and nature. He loved climbing trees, in which he created hidden ladders with his cousin, Jordan so that they could get to the very top. He had an active imagination, building forts from trees and junk, hiking to the Monforte Cave, and walking down the dirt road at night to the old Monforte Cemetery, scaring whomever he could on the way down there. Liam loved living on the Monforte Land; it was his playground, his place of peace. He loved hiking, exploring, playing, and enjoying his family, especially his cousins. They were all so important to him, and he asked for them to come over nearly every weekend. It was important to him for them to play the old fashion way, without technology in and outdoors. He loved playing games with his cousins like Capture the Flag, The Store Game, and their own live version of FNAF. They would run, sneak, and laugh all through the house. No matter how old he got, it was important for him to spend time with all of them. All his cousins were special to him, but Zach was his “Mini-Me.” They were like brothers and so much alike, such a special bond. Liam loved spending time with his Uncle T and his Uncle Rick as well. He looked up to and had so much respect for each of them. He loved watching movies, especially Men in Black and Star Wars.

Liam loved the holidays. Loved giving. He especially loved Halloween and the 4th of July. He loved popping fireworks and being outside. He loved planning and helping with the family haunted houses with his Grandad and Mom. As he got older, Halloween became an everyday thing. He was very sneaky, ornery, and always scaring anyone he could. He would be so quiet walking up to you, then when you turn around, he’s right there next to you, making you jump. He especially loved doing that to his Grandma. Liam was always pulling pranks. He would laugh so hard. You knew he was up to something when he would try not to smile, but that one dimple would start to show.
Liam also loved his pug, Chloe. He was always playing games with her, like hide ‘n’ seek. He would scoot her along the floor and run, and she would look everywhere until she found him. He loved that dog so much.

He also loved his country; ever since he was little, he wanted to serve. He was very patriotic and always respected and supported the military. If he wasn’t wearing a black shirt, it would be something with the Army, American Flag, or anything red, white, and blue.
Liam had an especially strong bond with his mother, Stacie. He would rave about the fun that they had participating in one of his favorite pastimes: scaring his grandma. He loved and respected her so much and recognized the great sacrifices that she regularly made for him. Under her care, he knew that he was loved and that he’d always have somewhere he belonged.

Through thick and thin, they were always there for each other, each a source of unconditional love for the other.

Liam is survived by his mother, Stacie Monforte of the home; his maternal grandparents, Terry and Diann Monforte of Cleveland; Paternal grandmother, Janie Cue of Arkansas; Maternal Great Grandmother, Jeane Ross of Cleveland, OK.; and Paternal Great-grandmother, Katie Johnson of Arkansas.
