Donald Mumper, 85, a recent resident of Redlands, and former long-term resident of La Canada Flintridge, died in his sleep on Saturday, November 24, at his residence in Yucaipa.
Don was born and raised in Akron, OH.; the son of James and Laura Mumper. He joined the Merchant Marines at age 17, and then upon turning 18, joined the US Navy, serving during WWII aboard the USS Columbus, where he was part of the shakedown cruise. During his tour of duty, Donald toured Japan, China, and Hawaii, as he proudly served his country. He was honorably discharged in California, where he met his wife of 50 years, Irene Mumper. They married in 1952, and settled in West Los Angeles where they raised three children. The move from West L.A. to La Canada kept him in closer proximity to his workplace at Ralph M. Parsons in Pasadena. He retired from Ralph M. Parsons Corp. as Procurement manager.
Don was predeceased by his wife, Irene, and is survived by his three children; sons, James and Timothy and daughter Lauri and their spouses. He also leaves behind his 6 grandchildren, Matthew, Jeffrey, Amanda, Devin, Joseph and Christopher, 2 step-grandchildren, Richard and Melissa, and three great grandchildren. He is also survived by his older brother William Mumper.
