<p>
<em>Edwin Francis &lsquo;Ed&rsquo; Rumsey</em> was born on Halloween Day in 1932 in Ithaca, NY the son of Milton Rumsey of Enfield, NY and Marie Becker of Sofia, Bulgaria. Ed&rsquo;s father drowned when Ed was 12 years old, so, although the family was very poor, Mrs. Rumsey held the family of three children together. Ed&rsquo;s mother advised them to never beg or ask for a handout and that one must earn everything. Ed&rsquo;s chores were shoveling snow, shoveling coal in the furnace, washing windows, mowing the lawn, doing dishes, and making beds. At one time, all the children caught scarlet fever, but they all survived. During his early years, Ed dreamed of a military career. His favorite school subject was history, but he also liked math. His favorite teacher was his math teacher, Miss DePew, because &ldquo;she made you think, recite, and solve.&rdquo;</p>
<p>
He was not keen on learning French. In elementary school, most children went home for lunch, but Ed carried his lunch to school as his mother had to work. During his schooling, Ed had a difficult time juggling academics, sports, and a weekend job. He was the starting quarterback on his high school football team at the age of 15. In the 10th grade his guidance counselor told him he was not smart enough to go to the United States Military Academy, but he did go and graduated with the Class of 1955.</p>
<p>
Ed excelled in sports at West Point. He played center field on the Baseball Team for four years. During an exhibition game against the New York Yankees, he came off the bench and lined a single to left field against Yankee pitcher Paul Giel. He was on the Boxing and Football teams during plebe year. Ed loved to sing and was a member of the Cadet Chapel Choir for four years and the Cadet Glee Club for three years.</p>
<p>
Ed served as a pilot in the United States Air Force for 26 years, retiring as a colonel. Ed attended primary flight training at Mauldin AFB in Missouri then advanced training at Reese AFB in Texas. He served in France, 1956&ndash;59, flying C-130s and C-119s, and in Vietnam, flying C-130s, earning two Air Medals. He was an air officer commanding at the U.S. Air Force Academy from 1963 to July 1966; during this tour he was selected to attend the Armed Forces Staff College, which he attended between 1966&ndash;67. He was assigned to CINCPAC (Commander in Chief, Pacific Command), 1968&ndash;70, earning the Meritorious Service Medal and the Joint Service Commendation Medal. He attended the Air War College in 1971, commanded the 317th Tactical Air Wing, 1971&ndash;73, served on the staff and faculty of the Air War College, 1973&ndash;76, and was director of Resident Programs on the faculty of the Air War College in 1976. He was awarded the Legion of Merit in March 1976.</p>
<p>
During 1976&ndash;77, Ed served as vice commander of the 463rd Tactical Airlift Wing and qualified as a command pilot in the C-130H aircraft. His last active duty assignment was at Clemson University as detachment commander and professor of aerospace studies. He retired from the Air Force in 1981 to nearby Seneca, SC and became director of cooperative education at Clemson University. For a while, he lived in Saudi Arabia working for Lockheed and teaching Royal Saudi Air Force pilots. Ed had earned a master&rsquo;s degree in political science from Auburn University in 1971.</p>
<p>
Ed retired to Oconee County, SC, making his home for 40 years in the town of Seneca. While living in Seneca he became chairman of the Oconee County Republican Party, serving in that role for six years. He was a delegate to the National Republican Convention in 2008. Senator Lindsey Graham said Ed was his &ldquo;go-to guy in Seneca.&rdquo; Ed ran unsuccessfully for office several times, including Oconee County probate judge and state representative. He worked tirelessly on the campaigns of politicians, including Senator John McCain&rsquo;s presidential bid (Ed had worked for McCain&rsquo;s father when he was a war plans officer on the staff of the Commander in Chief of the Pacific at Camp Smith, HI).</p>
<p>
Ed was married to the late Nancy Hillyer Rumsey. They had three children: Laura Rumsey Jennings, Linda Rumsey Suther, and Edwin Dwight Rumsey. His seven grandchildren are Robert Ramsey Jennings, John Hillyer Jennings, Henry Campbell Jennings, Edwin Ford Jennings, Chapman Gregory Suther, Isabel Taylor Rumsey, and Caleb Boyer Rumsey. He also had a great-grandson, Robert Ramsey Jennings III. He is survived by two siblings, Milton and Ray Rumsey.</p>
<p>
Ed treasured the friendships formed at West Point and the camaraderie carried over to his retirement years, when he often met with classmates and other alumni at local class functions and at 5- and 10-year class reunions. Athletic interests included handball, racquetball, golf, and tennis. Boating on Lake Keowee was also a popular pastime. He was an avid reader, primarily about history or politics. He never stopped continuing his education. He became certified as a paralegal, a private investigator, and a licensed tax preparer. His final career, which he actively pursued to his death, was real estate sales.</p>
<p>
A quotation from Ed to his family: <em>&ldquo;</em>I&rsquo;ve had a wonderful life&mdash;have won some battles and lost some. But I know of no one who has enjoyed being in these small skirmishes more than me. Love and enjoy life as long as you have it.&rdquo;</p>
