Judy Lynn Monico Avery

Judy Lynn Monico Avery, 68 of Fort Worth, passed away December 17, 2020 due to complications of Covid. Judy was a loving and amazing mother, grandmother, wife and life-long companion to those in the Avery and Monico families.

Judy was born September 13, 1952 in Dallas, Texas to Leon Marion Monico and Nancy Skelton Monico. She grew up in Arlington Texas, and from childhood was a caring hero to all creatures young and in distress. Judy passionately loved all her children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Judy met Robert Avery on a blind date and they married not too long after in San Diego California. She spent the next few years as a young Navy wife and mother to her two children Kenneth and Vickie. For many years she was a wife, a mother, adoptive mother to all the kids that walked through her life, a business partner to her husband, and a passionate protector of her family.

The last several years of her life she returned to her childhood passion of saving the small and at-risk animals that had been thrown out to the elements. She worked passionately to rescue, nurse back to life, and ultimately find homes for over 200 kittens, bottle feeding, praying, and raising them so they could be adopted and find forever homes.

Judy is survived by her husband; Robert Avery from Fort Worth, her two children; Kenneth Avery and his wife Andrea Avery from Burleson, Vickie Avery Ferguson and her husband Gerald Ferguson from Fort Worth, Kenneth and Karen Harrigan of Boston, Sam, Alex, Julian and William's mom Myriam Brocard of Fort Myers, many Grandchildren; Sam, Alex, and William Avery, Alex's fiance Jacy Salda, Sara and Caleb Kennedy, Bryce Satterfield, Andrew, Ann, Aerik, and Aeron Stowell, Courtney and Madison Harrigan.

Nieces and nephews; Shelly Avery, Shannon Avery, Kaylee Avery, JR Avery, Angela Monico, Crystal Monico, Stephen Monico, James Monico, Sarah Monico and husband Rodney Stowell.  She also has many cousins including Barbara Chandler, Elsia Pearl Skelton Cashion. Charles Cashion., Bobby Cashion. Sylvia Cashion, Martha Skelton Carpenter, Henry Skelton, Bill Skelton, Sandy Skelton, and all of their children, and many friends.

Preceding her in death: Parents, Leon and Nancy Monico, brother Carl Monico and sister-in-law Carol Monico. Grandson Julian Avery, her grand-parents and many aunts and uncles. Judy will be laid to rest next spring in the Saginaw Cemetery near her forever-4-year-old grandson Julian and Robert's mother Mary.

December, 2015.

After 30 years supporting the aviation tool community Bob & Judy Avery retired from retail tool sales on December 17th, 2015.

The Avery Tools webstore was closed on that date, and the toll free number was changed.

Avery Tools will continue to manufacture many of the specialty aviation tools and products and supply these items wholesale (only) to the below noted retail suppliers (most of these suppliers have been selling our tools and products for years).

Bob Avery will be available part-time by phone at (817)439-8400 or e-mail boba@averytools.com to cover any warranty issues, answer tool questions, help you with the transition to other tool suppliers. The aircraft tools that Avery Tools manufactures and the products we have provided for all these years are available from many other aviation tool and product suppliers. These suppliers (in alphabetical order) are listed below:

Note: Mike Lauritsen at Cleaveland Tool has added many of the Avery & special RV tools and is using our old part numbers on his website. If you have an Avery catalog you should be able to enter the Avery part number in the search box and find the tool or part (if Mike stocks it). Mike can assist new builders with help on complete tool kits, and questions and technical help related to other experimental / homebuilt kits.

Note: Peter and Diana Pengilly have been close friends and suppliers in the UK and Europe of Avery Tools since 2008 and will continue providing technical expertise, tools, and other aviation related products to the aviation community in the UK and European market.

We wish all our loyal friends and customers a MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS, and a HAPPY NEW YEAR. Keep building and flying!!
