Mr. Perry (Bo) Laney Mungo entered into rest Sunday, April 24, 2022. He was the son of the late Perry F. and Lois Funderburk Mungo. Bo was a faithful member of the Friendship Sunday School Class at Pageland First Baptist Church. The second generation of the family construction company, P.F. & Perry L. Mungo, Inc., Bo’s influence can be seen in residential, commercial and instructional structures throughout South and North Carolina and Georgia. Bo took great pride passing his trade to his sons, the third generation of Mungo builders.
A multi-sport athlete at Pageland High School, Bo loved baseball most. His high school football career was highlighted by selection to play in the 1954 Annual Pee Dee Tobacco Bowl Gridiron Classic in Florence, SC. Bo attended NC State, studying engineering. Bo’s most coveted prize came when he won the heart of the beautiful brown-eyed 1961 “Miss Pageland Tiger”, Frances Hinson. Together, Frances and Bo grew the construction company, while growing their family. Their three children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were their pride and joy.
In addition to being a devoted husband, father and “Papa Bo”, Bo was an avid golfer, sinking his first hole-in-one in 1974 at White Plains Country Club. Bo enjoyed the golf, but loved the shenanigans of his golfing buddies. “Breakfast Club” with close friends and Friday nights at “The Barn” with family and friends were Bo’s favorites.
In addition to his parents, Bo was also preceded in death by his wife of 56 years, Frances Hinson Mungo, son, Stanley Laney Mungo, sisters Mary Funderburk and Judy Mills. Survivors include son, Gregory Neil Mungo and wife, Robin of Pageland, SC; daughter, Alishia Mungo Branham and husband, Paul of Camden, SC; Grandchildren, Sophia Alley (Trey), Laney Mungo (Trey), Will Mungo (Kelly), Sam Mungo, Steven Branham, Nathan Branham (Ann Marie), Reed Branham (Ashleigh), and Mary Branham (Corey); great grandchildren Presley Alley, Madelyn Alexander, Kingsleigh Branham, Greer Branham and Owen Paul Branham; sisters, Elaine Hendrix (Danny), and Theda Lynn; and special nephew, Steve Jackson (Kathy).
