Dr. Ernest Gordon Muntz

Dr. Ernest Gordon Muntz, age 95, passed away peacefully on June 5, 2019. He was predeceased by his wife of 70 years, Marjorie Corinne Wilson Muntz. They had three children, Carolyn Crosthwaite (Hal) of Denville, NJ; Deborah Krehbiel (Tuck) of Cincinnati, OH; and Dr. Howard G. Muntz (Dr. Barbara Goff) of Seattle, WA; six grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. Born in Buffalo, NY to the Reverend J.

After the end of the war, he returned to graduate from Wheaton College in 1948 and then went on to earn a PhD in History from the University of Rochester. He served on the faculties of Blue Mountain College (MS); Union University (TN) and the University of Cincinnati where he became Dean of Raymond Walters College (now UC Blue Ash) in 1969 and retired from that position in 1990. He is still the longest serving dean in that college’s history. Dr. Muntz is a past president of the Literary Club of Cincinnati. In his retirement years he traveled widely, stepping foot on all seven continents. He will join his wife in the Big Ridge Cemetery near Glenville, NC where she was born.

Dear Family, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dear loved one. Our loving Creator never planned for death to be part of his original plan. There is such a loving scripture found at Revelation 21: 3 & 4 which reads: With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, And they will be his people, And God himself will be with them, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The Former things have passed away I hope these words help you find comfort and also give you hope for our near future. Can you imagine Living Forever on Earth under Beautiful conditions that will never end.
