April 13, 1942 – February 14, 2020
Wayne Allen McMullen, age 77, passed away peacefully at his home in New Port Richey, FL on Friday, February 14, 2020 surrounded by his loving family. He was born April 13, 1942 in St. Marys, Ohio to Clyde and Bernetta (Cottrell) McMullen. On June 10, 1967, he married Patricia Ark in Enon, Ohio. After retiring from the United States Navy, he worked as a letter carrier in Holland, MI. Wayne grew tired of the cold, dreary winters and shortly after the blizzard of 1978, the family relocated to sunny Florida.
Wayne retired at an early age which allowed time for varied hobbies, including bass fishing, camping, traveling and spending time with family and friends. He was known for his humorous sayings and sense of humor. His kindness will be remembered by many.

One of my favorite memories is Uncle Wayne's sense of humor. I had made a comment about my rear end in a joking way, he just laughed and said I was just blessed with the McMullen Ass!! I don't know why this has just stuck with me for the last few years. But it has always just made me laugh every time I have told that story. And will continue to make me smile even more now!! I love you Uncle Wayne!! Say Hi to Dad for me!! Aunt Pat, Kim & Clyde, I wish I could be there with you all!! Please know I am thinking about you and I love you all SO much!!
