Grover Mills Mundell, age 48, of Dunwoody, passed away from complications related to pulmonary fibrosis on March 8, 2013.

CandleAlthough he lost his fight with this disease and was unable to have a timely lung transplant, he was able to donate many of his other organs so that others may have a chance at new life.

Grover is survived by his wife Sally; his children Ruby, 5, and Matilda, 2; his parents John and Marilyn Mundell; sisters, Shelley Bear and Melanie Foster; brother, Sam Mundell; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Grover was born in Walsh, Colo. and grew up on his family’s ranch. He went to school at West Texas A&M University and graduated with a degree in business. Grover came to Dunwoody with Sally in 2006. He loved his family and knew that life was a joy if only you would take the time to live it. He was an advocate for living life to its fullest. He loved playing music, writing poetry and being a humorist. While his life was cut short, his legacy will be his love for his children, wife and family and his reminder to always take the time to enjoy what you do.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to the children’s college education fund – gradsave.com/rubyfmundell.
