Kenneth Carvel Mumford was born on June 8, 1964, in Key West, Florida. After a courageous battle with cancer, he transitioned to eternity on April 6, 2019, in Little Elm, Texas, at age 54.
Kenneth grew up in Boston, Massachusetts where he excelled in football and basketball. He attended Hyde Park High School and went on to enjoy a career in computer programming in which he earned various certifications. He later enjoyed a career as a rehabilitation counselor.
He had a passion for fishing and bowling, and he traveled all over the country winning numerous awards. However, his greatest passion was for the people with which he came in contact, especially the disabled community. Kenneth was a Christopher Reeves peer mentor who mentored newly injured patients to assure them that life goes on even after an injury. Kenneth, by his own example, challenged everyone he met to be the best that they could be, to experience life to the fullest, to not allow circumstances to limit their potential, and to know that they have a God in them that they could tap into for strength. He was an inspiration and example for us all.
A compassionate, determined, positive, uplifting, fearless leader with a strong will and refreshing perspective on life, Kenneth Mumford will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
