On October 15, 1930, James Robert (Bobby) Hungerford was born into this world in Charles County. Bobby was the treasured son of the late Robert E. Hungerford and Margaret Hungerford. He was peacefully transitioned into God's Kingdom on June 4, 2018. He was surrounded by his beloved family and friends. Up until the time of illness, he regularly attended services at St. Mary's Star of The Sea Catholic Church in Indian Head, Maryland.
Bobby graduated from Pomonkey High School in 1947. Following high school, Bobby attended and graduated from Maryland State College in Princess Anne, Maryland.

Bobby enjoyed a career as a trusted public servant for 34 years where he retired from the National Security Agency (NSA). He demonstrated the highest level of professionalism, devotion to duty and integrity, while performing a range of assignments.
After retirement from the federal government, Bobby enjoyed spending time with the family watching Sunday football games, especially the Redskins and enjoyed other sports such as auto racing and basketball. Some of his favorite pastimes were putting together puzzles, watching Wheel of Fortune, travelling across the states, bowling in leagues, fishing and hosting varied outdoor social events for family and friends. He was preceded in death by his brother Charles Hungerford.
