Note
Samuel Vinson Cumby Written by his wife, Glynda Cumby May 4, 2007 How do you write about the man with whom you fell in love when you were sixteen years old and whom you still love today, fifty-five years later. He has been many things in my life. He has been many people in my life. We have grown up through many stages in our lives. Our years have been adventuresome, fun, tough, good, and bad. Our marriage has survived because we always loved each other. Some years we didn't like each other too much, but we have always loved each other and our marriage has survived. It has done more than survive--it has thrived. So who is this man? Very good looking--even today when he is 73 years old. Intelligent. Affectionate. Lover. Husband. Father. Grandfather. Great teacher of math and science. Welder, artist, wine taster, beer drinker, bar lover, house builder, avid reader. Good dancer. And because we owned property, plummer, painter, repairman, and roofer. My leader. My partner. My caregiver. My love. Sam was born in Austin, Texas on April 3, 1934. His mother, Lucille Womble Cumby, picked a 100 pound bag of cotton the day before he was born. Because he had three sisters older than he, ( Margaret was 12 years old, Janey was 8 years old and Sue was 4 years old when he was born) and because he was the baby of the family--and the only boy-- he has obviously always been very special. Certainly he has been well loved by the Cumby women--including me. And, of course, by his father, Ira Hershal Cumby. Because times were rough during the depression years when he was born, Sam lived in many places when he was little. When he was very young, his parents ran a series of "joints"--bars, night clubs, honkey tonks. A few places Sam remembers were The Hi-Ho Inn, Cille's Tavern and The Blue Goose (all in the Austin area) and Ford's Tavern and Resturant in Oil City, Louisiana. The family often lived above or behind the places. This was a lot of fun for a little boy. The morning that the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Sam was sitting on a barstool at the Hi-Ho Inn, listening to the radio. Sam started to school in Fiskville, Texas. He also went to school in Pfulggerville, Texas, Oil City, Louisiana, and Round Rock, Texas. After WWII began, the family moved to the Texas coast and Sam's dad went to work as a painter for Dow Chemical Company. Sam attended Velasco Junior High and Brazosport High School. The summer after he graduated, he worked for Dow Chemical Company. In the meantime, I had come into Sam's life. When he was a senior in high school and I was a sophomore, we had a typing class together. I remember that on the third day of class, I watched him walk in the door and thought, "Wow! He is good-looking!" I made it a point of "talking" to him and soon we were dating. AT the end of the summer of 1952, Sam joined the U.S. Navy. His Dad told him he wasn't going to like it. He didn't. Sam became a welder and served his four years on the battleships USS Wisconsin and USS Missouri. He was also aboard the repairship USS Montrail and finished up his four years aboard the the troop carrier, the USS Hector. In the meantime, Sam and I had been married. On Sam's first leave home, we eloped to Bay City, Texas. We were married on a Tuesday, December 10, 1952. (I had told Sam I couldn't get married on Monday because I had a biology exam!!) I was a month short of being 17 years old (but lied and said I was 18) and Sam was 18 years old. Sam's mother and father went with us. Those Navy years were difficult and separations were painful. Good-bys were beyond pain. Everytime Sam came home on leave, Sam's Mom and I found an apartment and we moved all our belongings in and set up housekeeping. For however long the leave was, Sam and I had a "home"--even if it was only for a week. Then he would leave and Mamo and I would pack everything back up and store it away until the next leave. Time between leaves moved slowly. I finished high school and worked at Dow Chemical Company for a year. And finally--finally--after three years of separations, Sam came to Texas to get me and we moved to California. Finally we were able to begin to live our lives together. Nine months after Sam moved me to California, on March 31, 1956, Steven Vinson Cumby was born in the Naval Hospital in San Diego. Our son. Sam's ship was about to go to Japan. Sam thought he was going to be discharged early. He had applied to Texas Tech College in Lubbock, Texas and had been accepted. Suddenly the Navy decided Sam had to sail with the ship.
