Carl W. “Muggy” Mugford, 86, a resident of Swoyersville, passed away on Wednesday morning, March 06, 2019, at Partridge-Tippett Nursing Facility of the Wesley Village Campus, Jenkins Township.

His wife of 65 years is Dorothy (Morris) Mugford. The couple was married on September 13, 1953, and they happily lived together in their home in Swoyersville.

Born on July 21, 1932, in the Parsons section of Wilkes-Barre, Carl was the son of the late Granville and Mary (Fassett) Mugford.

An avid sports car enthusiast, Carl raced on a national level and participated annually in hill climbs most of his life. In his retirement, Muggy discovered golf and took great enjoyment in the sport.

Muggy did not miss much! He enjoyed life to its fullest and was just a fun guy to be around.
