Condolences to Val's family.  I didn't know Val well in high school, but remember his sweet smile and sunny disposition.  Gone too soon.

So sad to hear of Val's passing.  He was one of my most cherished friends during my years at Pacific.  I too enjoyed his wit and sense of humor, he was a great tuba player in the pep band!  It was fun riding in his old Jaguar, even when it didn't have seats!

I too enjoyed Val's humor through high school.  So sorry to hear of his passing and my sympathy goes to his family.  While Val is now in a peaceful state, the agony is his absence here on earth.  The memories you hold are now the blessings of his life.  May he rest in peace.

I am sorry to hear about Val's passing.  He was always upbeat and funny.  We had many good times together.

My deepest condolences to the Mumford family. Although I haven't seen Val for 20+ years, I consider him one of my close friends. Val and I played in the concert band (sousaphone) at John Muir and maching band at Pacific High. Val and his brother worked for my dad during the summer breaks. I'll always remember Val as being a funny and uplifting personality with a smile that made you smile no matter what your mode was. Val will be missed by all who knew him.
