Jack Munroe never took the fight game seriously, considering it just another adventure, and failed to really train hard for any of his fights.

Munroe enlisted in the famous Princess Pats of Canada at the outset of WWI. He lost use of his right arm at the battle of Vimy Ridge, at Armentieres, when a bullet severed the sub-clavial artery.

He served as mayor of Elk Lake, Ontario for a time and was a popular after-dinner speaker all over Canada.

Munroe died in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Feb. 13, 1942.
