Raymond M Rumbly Jr.

Raymond Montgomery Rumbly, Jr. was born October 30, 1930 to Raymond M. Rumley and Berthell (Taylor) Rumley in Pershing, Iowa where he was raised. He graduated from Twin Peaks High School in Pershing, Iowa and later moved to Des Moines to start his own family.

For most of his life, he worked as a janitor for the Iowa State Capital Building. He enjoyed fishing, lawn care, antique t.v. shows and westerns. He was always puffing on his tobacco pipe and liked to have a Budweiser or some black velvet from time to time. In his spare time, he also enjoyed working on cars. He was a stubborn man, straight forward and always to the point. He didnt have a problem being honest.

Raymond passed away in the comfort of his own home on March 25, 2017 with his family at his side. He was preceded in death by his wife, Naomi (Burnett) Rumbly; son, Alvin Whitson; daughter, Etta Lowe; parents; brothers, Richard, Thomas and Billy Rumbly; sisters, Kathleen Rumbly, Margie Parker, Beverly Rumbly, Miggie Colton and Dana Lee Burnside.

Although as tough and stubborn as he was he will be greatly missed by his children, Julia Rumbly, Joanna (Hugh) Ward, Joyce White, Linda Turner, Jean Mitchell, Marie Sullivan, Ragina Rumbly, Melvina Rumbly, Charles (Charlotte) Whitson and Tiny Rumbly; a host of grandchildren and great-grandchildren; siblings, Joesther (Johnny) Bryson, Vickie Rumbly, Carol (Michael) Bruce and sister-in-law, Irene Rumbly; along with many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
