WOOSTER -  Alvice N. Rumburg died July 10, 2017 at age 81. 

Born September 7, 1935 to Warren and Violet Rumburg, Al grew up on a Seville, Ohio dairy farm with sisters Evelyn and Anne. After years of honing his craft, Al grew to be an accomplished carpenter, putting those skills to use within his own business, building homes and doing remodeling across Wayne and Medina counties. His impeccable work earned him awards and endless praise.  Al closed his career as a carpenter at The College of Wooster, where he was a long supporter of Fighting Scots basketball.

Al, a member of Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), was a man of deep faith, serving God, the church, and all people in many faithful ways as a Deacon, Elder, and lifetime Trustee.

He will be remembered as a loving and devoted husband to his beloved wife Verna of 54 years, a committed and loving father to his children Greg (April), Kim (Patrick), and Jon (Julie), a proud, caring Grandpa to Violet and A.J., a deeply respected brother-in-law and a cherished uncle to many nieces and nephews. 

Al was a friend to all, kind, considerate, and compassionate, who cared for his family, friends, animals, and the environment in any way he could, even if only prayerfully.  He will be immensely missed, but his spirit will remain.

Friends may call Friday 6 to 8 p.m. at McIntire, Bradham, & Sleek Funeral Home, 216 E. Larwill St., Wooster.  Rev. J. Alexander will officiate a celebration of life Saturday at Central Christian Church, 407 N. Market St., Wooster at 1 p.m.  Interment will follow at Sherwood Memorial Gardens.

Just wanted to let you know that we are keeping your family in our prayers. It is so, so hard to let a loved family member go home, but I have told myself many times that it is never good-by with Christian people, I always say "See you later". We have that knowledge and peace. We didn't get to spend much time with Mr. Rumburg, but we both know that he and Mrs. Rumburg brought up three pretty remarkable people and we are so blessed to have Greg in our lives. We wanted to come to the funeral, but circumstances have prevented it. We just wanted to let you know we are thinking of you all and pray the Lord's peace and love surrounds you all. If we can be of help in any way please let us know. In Christian love, Carl & Linda Hefner

Greg, Kim and family, sorry to hear of your loss.

To my beloved Wooster family,
Mrs Rumburg, Greg, Kim & Jon, please know that I extend my most sincere condolences at this time. In the light of the Resurrection we rejoice that he begins his eternal life with his Lord.
You're in my prayers.
Love,
David

Verna, Greg, Kim & Jon,
Our hearts are so sad to hear of Al's passing. Our thoughts and prayers go out to each of you. May God's comforting arms be around you and hold you up in the coming months. We can all rejoice though knowing he is in God's everlasting arms now.

Al was a great/fun/talented person. We reminder how he helped us build our house south of Shreve in 1974. He was willing to work with our design and drawings and did the Carpentry and Finish work, while letting me do the plumbing and wiring and painting! He was a joy to work with.

Glenn's and my prayers are with you for God's grace at this time. May God shower blessings upon your family.
