Michael Mungo dead at 82

Apr 12, 2010 8:15:00 AM - thestate.com
Michael Mungo, one of the first home builders to anticipate the demand for suburban homes in Lexington County, and a longtime member of USC's board of trustees, died early Sunday. He was 82 and had congestive heart failure.

In 1954, Mungo put to use something he had learned in a college government class and invested in land near the Broad River, building 119 brick, ranch-style homes in Riverside Forest.

The Mungo home-building business was born.

It is run now by Mungo's sons, Steven and Stewart, who grew it into one of the largest home-building companies in the nation.

In the second half of his life, Michael Mungo established a foundation to benefit select Christian and charitable causes.
