August 11, 1954 - July 25, 2021
Charles R. Mumford, age 66, of Laurel, passed away on July 25, 2021 at TidalHealth Nanticoke in Seaford. Born on August 11, 1954 in Salisbury, Maryland, he is the son of the late Charles Raymond Franklin Mumford and Ronnie Bradford Mumford. Charles proudly served in the United States Air Force for 19 years as an Inventory Management Craftsman, attaining the rank of Master Sergeant and was a decorated veteran, last serving at the Pentagon in the Air National Guard Readiness Center as liaison for all units on the East Coast. After retiring from service, he began a second career in Human Resource Management from which he retired for medical reasons in 2016. An outgoing person, he enjoyed getting together with family and friends, whether at home or, his favorite - eating out. He had a wonderful sense of humor and loved to laugh, loved to play with the grandchildren and their friends. He was able to laugh at himself when teased, and many family stories begin with, "Remember when Dad..." He was a proud dad, the mainstay of his family and always available whenever his help was needed. All of his life he served the Lord and his church in every way he could, holding various positions on the church board as well as teaching, preaching, and singing. He loved his church family and often spent hours visiting the sick in the hospital or in nursing homes until his own health began to decline. Charles is survived by his wife Teresa A. Mumford; sons, Joshua D. Mumford and his wife Dawn, and Daniel A. Mumford and his wife Trish; daughter, Rachel T. Mumford; sisters, Patsy Darby, "Evie" Wallace, and Debbie Walker and her husband Louis; grandchildren, Alyssa Sterling, Makaylah Foskey, Kailey Mumford, Joshua Mumford, Jr., Bryan Cruz, and Aiden Mumford; and great granddaughter, Eliana Hazzard. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his son Michael A. Mumford. A celebration of life will be held at 11a.m. on August 7th, 2021 at Denton Wayside Church, 26995 Shore Hwy.
