His brother, Jim (Mary) Mullings of Ahwahnee, California. He was a loving, devoted husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle and friend.
He was married in 1977 in Manteca, California and with his wife, Renée, and their 2 daughters, moved to Montana in the fall of 1989 where he began his 30-year career with the Montana Department of Transportation, serving the people of the state of Montana until his retirement on May 19, 2020. He also served as Assistant Fire Chief on the Lewis and Clark County Volunteer Fire Department for many years. He impacted many lives, with his incredible God given gift of engineering, wisdom and knowledge.
Mr. Mullings had an enthusiastic love for all things Montana. Until his health declined, he was an avid outdoorsman; hunting, fishing, hiking, canoeing, white water rafting; he loved all things this beautiful state offered him and his family. Just prior to his passing, his passion for the preservation of Montana’s wildlife came through like never before. His sincere desire, was for future generations to be able to enjoy, all things, “Montana”.
Even in the midst of his short struggle with Glioblastoma, his faith and love for his Lord and Saviour remained strong and true. All who stood by his bedside, left with an encouraged heart and a soft smile, not sad, but comforted by the words he left them. Mr. Mullings has left a great legacy and will be truly missed by his family and friends.
His family wishes to express their sincere thanks to Drs. Krass, Lessmeier, Stone and Hill for the excellent care he received regarding his prognosis in June of this year, as well as to the nursing staff of Logan Hospice-Home Options these last two months; in particular: Susan Socha, Lisa, Berry, Angie, Kristie, Julie and Aide: Misty.
