Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Jeff Mundie, 58, of Brookhaven, GA, passed away on January 7, 2023. Jeff was born on March 22, 1964, to John and Irene Mundie in Burnaby, Canada. As a young boy, the family moved to Montreal where he and his lifelong friends developed a great love for sports, especially the game of Rugby. An accomplished player, Jeff had the honor of playing for the Canadian National Under 20 Rugby Team of Canada twice. He had fond memories of playing for his hometown team the Montreal Irish, clubs in Australia and South Africa as well as coaching various Atlanta Rugby Clubs. His leadership on the rugby pitch was valued by his fellow teammates and by those he had coached.
Jeff’s other great love was travel. After graduating from Memorial College in Newfoundland, Jeff left to travel the world. A modern-day Marco Polo, Jeff visited well over 100 countries. An adventure traveler, with his beloved wife Lisa at his side, Jeff touched all corners of the globe. Whether it was an epic Cape to Cairo trek or circumnavigating the globe, Jeff was happiest exploring this planet. A true citizen of the world, he lived in London, emigrated to Australia, and then later moved to Atlanta, proudly becoming a U.S. citizen, where he went on to receive a master’s in education.
It was his mighty presence and magnetic personality that made him beloved. Anyone who called him a friend will remember Jeff’s texts with their witty and erudite commentary. We will all miss his emails starting with “G’day Mate!” and always ending with “Cheers!”. Jeff will always be remembered for his incredible ability to connect with, honor, and value others.
Jeff is survived by his wife Lisa Pintozzi, mother Irene Mundie, brothers Joel Mundie, J.C. Mundie, and the late Jamie Mundie along with an extended network of family and friends. His ashes will be spread around the globe as he would have liked.
