Paul Cromwell Brumley, 90, was born in Knotts Island, North Carolina, to the late Minnie Hall Ballance and Edgar Wright Brumley Sr. He passed away Sunday, April 7, 2019, 31 days after the loss of his beloved wife, Judy Brumley. As a testament to their lifelong love story, they were married for over 69 glorious years.
Paul grew up on “Knotts Island Bay,” where he loved to hunt and fish. He passed his love of the water to his children and grandchildren.
Paul began his career with VEPCO as a lineman, retiring 35 years later as a proud serviceman. He also petitioned the Virginia Beach Masonic Lodge, (#274) where he was a current master mason with 65 years serving as tiler for a period of time. He had a keen interest in the ministries Hope Haven provides for the children of Virginia Beach.
Paul had a great love for his family. He is survived by his daughter, Jill B. Sarver (Jim); son, Patrick N. Brumley Sr. (Karen); grandchildren, Judson Sarver, Berend Sarver, Tiffany B. Stuflick, Sarah B. Lightner and Patrick Brumley Jr.; great-grandchildren, Noah, Korey, Eli, Marley, Ruthie, Mya, Kylie, Ethan, Tessa and Lillie; sister-in-law, Anna Spence; many nieces, nephews and caring neighbors; and a loving family friend, Kellie Williams.
He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Judy; son, David; and parents, brother and sisters.
The family will receive friends from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m., Saturday, April 20, at the social hall of Oak Grove Baptist Church, 691 Princess Anne Road, Virginia Beach. A memorial service will immediately follow visitation.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Oak Grove Baptist Church Building Fund or Hope Haven.
Thank you from the Brumley and Sarver families.
