Robert A. Moncure

Robert Ambler "Cappy" Moncure, 89, died peacefully surrounded by his family on Sunday, Aug. 18, 2013, at his home in Lutherville, Md.

Married 60 years to his beloved wife, Connie, he was the loving father of JoAnn Moncure, Kate Moncure Mastroianni and her husband, Ennio, and Robert A Moncure III and his wife, Margaret; and cherished grandfather of Courtney and Robbie. He is also survived by many dear relatives and friends.

Cappy grew up on his family farm in Stafford County, adjacent to the historic Aquia Church. He attended VMI and graduated with a degree in civil engineering in 1949, after returning from his proud years of service in the U.S. Marine Corps during World War II. Most of his professional engineering career was spent as the executive vice president and board chairman of Century Engineering Inc. in Towson, Md.

He was a devoted VMI alumnus and enjoyed his close friendships with his "Brother Rats."

A service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 31, at Aquia Episcopal Church, Stafford.
