Victor Leone Mumford

Victor Leone Mumford went home to be with his Lord and Savior on August 1, 2020.
 
He was born on July 19, 1928 in Greenwood Township to the late William P. and Ruby Belle (Hazen) Mumford.
 
He knew from a very early age how to work hard and did so throughout his 92 years. He was the paperboy to all of the workers at Keystone Work Ordinance which made TNT during World War II.  He would share that he had a white pass that permitted him to go anywhere on the plant.  As a 14-year old, his papers weighed more than he did.
 
Victor served our country as an Army Sergeant from 1948- 1951 during the Korean War. He was at the Chosin Reservoir making sure all the trucks and heavy equipment were up and running.  When he came home he met the love of his life, Nancy Hall. He said once he saw her smile, he knew she was the one. They married on October 10, 1953. When he first married, he remodeled an old farm house on German Road where he began to raise his family, until the property was taken over by the Woodcock Dam Project, moving his family to Round Top for the next 27 years. Victor and Nancy celebrated 66 years of marriage. Where you saw one, you would see the other. He worked at the former Viscos, later known as Avtex, for 42 years. During this time, he also worked on cars in his garage and hauled coal to people’s homes.  He was able to analyze and fix anything and he was always available to share his expertise with anyone who asked. Many young people learned how to work on cars due to his teaching. When Avtex closed, he went to work on building a retirement home. He had no plans written down; he just knew in his mind what he wanted to do to make a beautiful home.  During retirement he read through the Bible in a year and on many occasions he would let you know how far he was and what he had read about that day.  He was very active at Pleasantview Christian Missionary Alliance Church for 66 years, where he served as an usher and former Sunday School secretary. He also helped to build the church where it stands today.  Victor’s greatest joy was his family and his many friends. He was always making sure everyone was doing things the proper way.
 
In addition to his parents Will and Ruby, Victor was preceded in death by siblings Raymond, Marshall, Norman, Norma, Kenny and Francis Mumford, Mildred Russell, Lila Morian, Dorothy Pedrick, and a half sister Adabelle Sackett.
  
He is survived by his wife Nancy, sister Jeanie Mumford, brother Donald Mumford, sister-in-law Shirley Mumford, five children Vickie, Edward (Kelly), Karen, Joy, and Kevin (Cheryl); grandchildren Amber Digiacomo (Jason),  Brooke Brace (Alec), Kerrianne Mumford and a step grandson Theo Whipple, Heather Sunday (Jared), Jenna Danka (Jesse), Autumn Hampson (Chad); his great-grandchildren Jace, Reese, Baby Brace that is on the way, Andrew, Harper, Delaney, Layton and Macy. He is further survived by many nieces and nephews.
