In addition to his parents, George was preceded in death by the love of his life Juanita just 8 days prior, and daughter, Rev.

George was known as “JR” to everyone that knew him. All of his caretakers fell in love with him, most saying he was easy to love. George was the hardest working man ever and he had a heart of gold.
Hundreds of kids were taken to church through his bus ministries and as a result many are now in full time ministry across the country. Besides kids ministry, JR directed, collected food and fed hundreds of families through his food closet. He made everyone feel like they were his favorite.
The sons of George Mullins will tell you today that whatever success they have is directly tied to following their dads work ethics and love for people.
Dad is together again with Mom after just 8 days of separation, it seems he could wait no longer and 65 years of marriage continues throughout eternity.
The family will receive guests Thursday, January 11, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in the Newcomer – SW Chapel, 4752 Heatherdowns Blvd., Toledo (419-381-1900).
