I’ll always have fond memories of Unvle Moon, especially at the lake house. Him watering the lawn every morning, and letting me kill a water mocassin with a 12 gauge that was by the trailer!
We all loved him, he’s with Aunt Kathy now, that’s most important!

Moon Mullins was one of the greatest men I have ever known. My Sunday School teacher, our softball coach and lead the Sunday School Bus Service. No one could ask for a better husband and father. A WWII Army hero that saw lots of action in the Pacific with the 6 Army Division. Landed on 3 different islands, the last one the Phillipines with General McArthur. He went above and beyond the call of duty for his country. One Great Chrisitan Man that served the LORD with all his heart. Lived his Life by 4 words, GOD, Family, Duty and Country. He now walks the streets of heaven holding hands with his wife Kathy once again. GOD Bless Them Both.

Ahhh the lifelong memories imparted to a young boy by my beloved Uncle Moon. Here are but a few:

- You took this young boy for his first ever ride in a boat down, maybe up, the Piankatank river to fish. I loved every minute of it and could have fished day and night with you.

- You showed me how to surf cast for ocean fish. 50 years later I still love to surf fish.

- You made delicious "Moon" pies for everybody at the camp ground like none other.

- You sat me in your lap and let me "drive" your Chevy Blazer (or was it a Ford Bronco?)

- You showed "righty" how to hit a golf ball the "right" way -- left-handed!

- You once made me five grilled cheese sandwiches and I ate 'em all!

- You made all the girl cousins open the attic door, so I could play too! :)

- You played in the first softball game I ever witnessed. It started my passion to play the game.

- I saw you jump to assist a fallen man (heart attack) inside Atlanta Fulton County Stadium on Easter Sunday. You are role model in every sense of the phrase.

- Above all the many memories I have of you, many not recollected here, one stands above the rest. Your unfailing selflessness. Defined by your kindness, enthusiasm, good-natured humor, and generosity towards others, your selflessness was always evident, even to a 12-year old. Your selflessness was evident then, and I'm sure now.

Thanks for all the memories, beloved Uncle. -Iggy

We are certainly going to miss Mr. Mullins in the neighborhood. One of my favorite memories of the Mullins was Mr. Mullins sitting Mrs. Mullins right at the door when she wasn’t able to get around so well anymore so she could still hand out candy to the trick or treaters. It truly warmed my heart to see such love. Sending prayers of peace to your family during this time.
