He was fondly known as Rommel ( Ro-mel), his middle name, by family and friends. He enjoyed abstract painting and drawing pictures of landscapes. Rommel was a loyal Washington Football fan and enjoyed bowling. Rommel always had a sense of adventure, of imagination, and a knack for planning. Growing up, he would come up with fun games to play with his siblings. As an adult, he enjoyed planning trips, such as zoo trips, camping trips, and Niagara Falls. Raised as a military brat, his favorite childhood memories consisted of exploring Stuttgart and Mannheim, Germany. His family moved to Newport News, VA in 1983. The following year, Rommel graduated from Denbigh High School. He then pursued an Accounting degree from Kee Business College and graduated in 1988. In July 1992, he dedicated himself as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Rommel was a member of the Oyster Point Congregation. On January 16, 1993, Rommel married Angela Moore, and together they raised their daughter, Tamber.
He is survived by his wife of twenty-seven years, Angela Elizabeth Mauney; only child: Tamber Aliyah Mauney; parents: Rachford Harrell Mauney & Mabel Dolores Mauney of Newport News, VA.
