August 15, 1927 ~ January 21, 2006
MULLIN, Joseph Vincent passed away on January 21, at home in Manhattan Beach, California. After many years of fighting various ailments, his passing was sudden and peaceful. He will be remembered for his love of family and home, as well as his passion for football.
Joe was born on August 15, 1927 to Joseph E. Mullin and Pearl Masterson of Turtle Point, PA. He and his younger brother, Harold, were raised at St. Joseph's Orphanage in Erie, PA after the untimely deaths of his parents. Joe served in the U.S. Army in Okinawa from 1948 to 1952. After being honorably discharged, Joe came to his beloved, warm California where he met the love of his life, Sue Mulick and was adopted into the extended Mulick family. Joe and Sue were married in Los Angeles on July 14, 1956. Joe graduated from Loyola University in 1959 with a degree in mechanical engineering, and worked for Hughes Aircraft, Space and Communications Group in El Segundo for 36 years.
Joe and Sue moved to Manhattan Beach in 1960 where they raised their family. He was an active member of American Martyrs Parish and B.S.A. Troop 713. At home he enjoyed his tools and his many home improvement projects. Joe loved camping with his family, gardening, and traveling with his wife.
Joe will be missed greatly by his wife of 49 years, Sue, his sons Joe, Mike, and Tom, and his daughter Amy, daughter-in-law Therese Trebaol, and son-in-law John Fourkas. His grandchildren are Sam, Taylor, Sarah, Connor, and Austen. To his family, he left a legacy of courage, love, and deep religious faith. We will miss our J.V.
