Evans Clark (E.C.) Mundy, Jr. passed away on Wednesday, September 4, 2019 at home in Barboursville, VA with his wife of 43 years by his side.

E.C. was born March 25, 1927 at home on the family farm with the help of Dr.

Sims who came from Eheart on a horse and buggy. E.C. began his education at James

Barbour School in Barboursville and graduated in 1944 from Orange High School in

Orange, VA. After several “tries” to enter the U.S. Marine Corps and being told he was

too small each time, he began eating bananas and drinking water to increase the amount

of his weight on the scales and they finally sent him to “boot camp.” Once in the Marine

Corps during WWII, he was stationed in Guam, Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Tokyo Bay,

Japan. He was later sent aboard the USS Columbus to serve under Admiral Bennett and

then transferred to the heavy cruiser USS Chicago to serve with Admiral Bledsoe. E.C.’s

last tour of duty was on the USS Fall River which also returned him home to the USA.

After leaving the Marines he attended the Cincinnati College of Embalming and

graduated Summa Cum Laude. He worked as a licensed embalmer and funeral director

under Frank A. Bliley of Richmond, VA and also at Wheeler-Thompson Funeral Home,

Fredericksburg, VA. After his father died, E.C. moved back to the farm in Barboursville

and opened the State Farm Insurance Office in Orange, VA while also working part time

with horses. He began working full time with horses in the 1950’s. After marrying

Keveney Bliley in 1976, they both began buying, selling and raising young

thoroughbreds for the racetracks. They later moved their horse business to Ocala, FL

where the Ocala Breeders Sales Company was trying to get started. E.C. bought an

interest in this sales company and he and Keveney still own an interest. Thousands of

thoroughbreds are sold each year and the barns in Florida are always full.

One day E.C. decided that it was time to say goodbye to Florida and head back

home to Virginia. They made a home in Barboursville where E.C. was Master of the

Barboursville Masonic Lodge; founding member of the Piedmont Sportsman Club;

Chairman of the Orange County Zoning Board of Appeals; Chairman of the BarboursvilleRuritan Club; a former member of the Farmington Hunt Club and helped start the firedepartment in Barboursville.

E.C. loved dogs and started the first Jack Russell Budweiser line here in Virginia.

He also had some of the first Charolais cattle in the area and the first Goose Neck Horse

Trailer that became the “trailer of choice” after a while. E.C.’s love of the sport of

hunting with his friends and his English Pointers and later, English Setters, brought him

great joy. He brought the first Pointing Lab to this area.

E.C. was preceded in death by his parents Evans C. and Denzil Mundy, sisters

Duvrese M. Marr, Denzil M. Lyne, Beverly M. Collins and his son Evans Clark Mundy,

III. In addition to his wife, Keveney, he is survived by daughter Kimberly Murphy of

Alabama; sister Theresa M. Jesser of Athens, GA and several nieces and nephews.

Honorary pall bearers will be his nephews, cousins and The Hatton Ferry Dead Eyes,

sporting clay friends of E.C. Mundy.
