01/11/04     Dr. David Sparks  (1962)      cdsparks@rjia.net
Dear MHS'ers,

Mr. Harold B. Cumberledge, an outstanding educator in the Martinsville School System for many years, passed away on Sat. morning, January 10, 2004.

The family will receive friends at the Norris Funeral Home this Tuesday evening, January 13, from 6-8:00 p.m.

The funeral will be held at First Presbyterian Church in Martinsville on Wednesday, January 14. [Exact time of the service has not yet been set, but the Norris Funeral Home number is 276-638-2778 for further information.]

Our deepest sympathies are extended to his wonderful family.

Mr. Cumberledge was a teacher and principal. He served as the Administrative Assistant at the Martinsville School Board Office from 1969-1985 when he retired.

May the Lord bless the memory of Mr. Cumberledge to all of our hearts.

David Sparks, Class of 1962

David, I heard the news of Mr. C's passing . He was a very important part of my memories at Clearview. He was the basketball coach as well as principal. I called him back several years ago to thank him for the memories, and I saw him at the Beverly Nursing Home in Martinsville where I was visiting my mother and he was visiting his mother. God Bless.

Re: Mr. Harold B. Cumberledge Has Passed Away
I remember Mr. Cumberledge well. He was our next door neighbor, which made it really difficult to skip school. I didn't know he had taught, since my memories were of him as the Principle at Cleveland Ave. Mavahi in '69. That was the year Albert Harris and MHS integrated . . . and with the help of educators like Mr. Cumberledge and Mr. Finley (may God bless them both), I think MHS stood out as a great example of what can be accomplished by working together to find solutions, versus tearing each other down.
I feel privileged to have been a MHS graduate under both these fine men.
May God bless them both.
