John Michael “Mike” Muma, age 65, of Alvin, passed away May 30, 2019. His life journey began May 30, 1954, in Galveston, Texas, when he was born to parents, John Hugh and Eunice Marvelene (Hargett) Muma. He was a lifetime resident of Alvin.
He was a pipe fitter and welder by trade, but in his spare time his favorite thing to do was go fishing. He also loved to watch old western movies and listen to his CB radio. He enjoyed to hunt in his younger years, but as he got older his appreciation for wildlife grew. He came to realize that the only thing he wanted to shoot was a camera. He also thoroughly enjoyed being “Grandpa Mike.”
He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Eunice Marvelene Muma, and sister, Beverly Ann Newman.
Those left to cherish his memory are his loving daughter, Stephanie Long and husband John; grandson, Quentin Long; niece, Tracey Harper and husband Terry; niece, Shelly Guerrero and husband Donald; nephew, David (Mike) Newman; and great-nieces: Kirstie, Kelsie, Makenzie and Makayla, along with other relatives and friends.
