In addition to his parents, Kenneth was preceded in death by his first wife, Alice Forgie Mundy, his sisters Nadine Mundy and Francis Mundy Markham, his brother, Donald Mundy, and sister-in-law, Joneal Mundy.
Kenneth is survived by his loving wife, Karen Price Mundy; and 3 daughters, Alma Morgan and husband Robbie from Richmond, Virginia, Bonnie Coulter and husband Scott from Dale City, Virginia, and Amber Mundy from Covington, He had 4 granddaughters that loved him greatly, Ashley Soukup and husband Mike from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Hillary Morgan from Auburn, Alabama; Kinsey Coulter and Rachel Coulter from Dale City, Virginia. In addition, he was survived by brother, Gary Mundy; sister-in-law, Shirley Wolfe Mundy; brother-in-law, Pete Markham and wife Billie Sue; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Kenny loved life and never met a stranger. He joined the Navy at 17-years of age where he learned to cook. He settled in Alexandria when first coming out of the Navy and went to barber school. He moved back to Covington with his family in 1968 when he opened Mundy’s Barber Shop and the A & K Sandwich Shop in Clifton Forge. A few years later he went to Dabney S. Lancaster Community College to operate the food service and cater for local events. He is still known today for his stuffed chicken breasts, barbeque pork, and other favorites. In 1984, he opened Mundy’s Restaurant and the Mountaineer Lounge in Clifton Forge, followed by operator of Mallow Lanes in 1985. When talking of his work history, he shared that he had enjoyed all his endeavors and would encourage others to partake in work and life activities that bring joy. When not working in food service of some type, Kenny spent his free time fishing, hunting, bowling, golfing, catching turtles in the Jackson River, feeding the birds, and playing cards with family and friends.
As requested by Kenny, his remains will be cremated and placed in the Mausoleum at Alleghany Memorial Park. He asked that no funeral take place; however, a private memorial service will be scheduled for a later date.
All remembrance and memorial gifts can be made to Mountain Regional Hospice Volunteers, P.O.Box 637, Clifton Forge, Virginia 24422.
