Alton Ray Mullen

Alton Ray Mullen, age 78, passed away at his home in Fort Myers Beach, Florida on Friday, January 2, 2015.

Alton, also known as Al, Kayo and Moon, was born in Florence, Texas on March 1, 1936. He graduated from Florence High School and then had a career in the military, serving for more than 30 years in the Air Force, Army and National Guard. He lived in many different places including England, Germany, Spain, Austin, Lexington, and Marble Falls. He spent the last 10 years of his life in Florida because he loved the water so much.

He loved hunting, fishing and camping…anything to do with nature. He also loved cooking and a good game of football. He never met a stranger and his dog, Pugsy went with him everywhere. He was a very hard worker and although he was sick, he never complained. He always smiled and had a laugh no one will forget. He was full of knowledge of a life well spent and gave wonderful memories to all that knew and loved him.

Alton was preceded in death by his wife Sharon Mullen, his daughter Tamara Lynn Mullen, son Daniel Mullen, parents Alton Ernest and Ethel Mullen, 3 brothers Ernest, Charles, and J Ray Mullen.

He is survived by his 2 sons, Scott Mullen and wife Lou Ann, and Troy Mullen and wife Betty, 1 sister Lois Mullen, 2 daughters-in-law Pauline and Wilma Mullen, 17 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren.

His Honor Guard Memorial Service was held at Clements-Wilcox Funeral Home in Marble Falls on Saturday, January 10, 2015. He was laid to rest at the Florence Cemetery alongside his wife and two children.
