October 9, 1953 - November 10, 2020
Samuel Paul Umbarger, 67, of Mooresville, NC, gained his wings on the evening of 11/10/2020, at Atrium Health’s CMC Charlotte, surrounded by his devoted, tight-knit family. Sammy was born in Bland County, VA, on October 9, 1953. He was a graduate of Garinger High School in Charlotte, NC and was a nearly retired sole proprietor of his own trucking company shared with his wife Diane Umbarger. He is survived by his parents O. Paul and Mary Umbarger of Harmony, NC; wife, Diane Umbarger of Mooresville, NC; daughter, Mindy Brown and husband Jason Brown of Mooresville, NC; son, Matthew Umbarger of Denver, NC; two grandsons, Preston and Cohen Brown of Mooresville, NC; brother David Umbarger and family of Harmony, NC; brother Patrick Umbarger and family of Union Grove, NC; and numerous nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts and cousins. He was predeceased by his sister Yvonne Umbarger, maternal grandparents Bill and Virgie Summers and paternal grandparents H. Paul and Cleo Umbarger. Sammy shared many passions in life with his family and friends including his love of music, camping trips, flying planes and driving Corvettes. He and Diane just celebrated their 44th wedding anniversary at the beach. His joking nature, late night conversations and the relentless hard work for his family will never go unnoticed and the flame of his memory will continue to burn. A private Celebration of Life will be held on a later date at Langtree Plantation, 554 Langtree Rd. Mooresville, NC where his joyous and jovial life will be celebrated with songs, recounts of unforgettable experiences and pastimes and wonderful fellowship among friends and family. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to www.Guitars4Vets.org and www.uwcentralcarolinas.org (COVID Relief Fund). James Funeral Home of Huntersville is serving the family.
