R. Patrick Mundy
GRANGER, Ind. — R. Patrick Mundy, 70, passed away unexpectedly Nov. 27, 2018, after a brief illness.
Born Jan. 16, 1948, in Salem, Ohio, he was the son of the late Leo Francis and Kathryn (Hertz) Mundy.
His brother, Donald Mundy, also preceded him in death.
On June 12, 1971, Pat married the love of his life, and his high school sweetheart, Trudy Nedelka, who survives. To their union, they were blessed with two children, Dr. Bradley (Ashley) of Granger, Ind., and Devon (Jordan) Spellmeyer of Carmel, Ind. Also left to cherish his memory are three grandchildren, who were the apple of his eye: Nolan Mundy and Cameron and Brody Spellmeyer; and three sisters: Mary Jean (Bill) Cubbage of Burnsville, Minn., Diane McLaughlin of Copley, Ohio, and Nancy Youel of Northfield Center, Ohio; and many beloved nieces and nephews.
A very committed brother, husband, dad and grandpa, Pat loved and valued spending time with his family more than anything. He was a man of his word and was known to be a straight shooter. He had a unique ability to carry a conversation with anyone he met. Throughout his life, he was incredibly selfless and a hard worker that never desired material things of his own. He consistently put his family and friends’ needs ahead of his and found joy in doing so. He had an amazing talent at fixing just about anything and took pride in his many projects, never taking any shortcuts. With his unique sense of humor, he always managed to light up the room and make others laugh.
He attended St. Paul Catholic School in Salem, Ohio from kindergarten to eighth grade, graduated from Salem High School, and then earned his bachelor’s of science degree in marketing at The Ohio State University. Upon graduating from college, he worked for Uniroyal/Royalite for over 30 years. He held many positions in sales and management throughout his successful career. He remained a big fan of Ohio State football, and passed on the enthusiasm to his family. He was proud to be an Eagle Scout. He was dearly loved and his jokes and contagious laugh will be greatly missed by many.
