Obituary

Deward Mullen, 91, of Fairfield, passed away Wednesday, December 25, 2019 in Arlington.
Deward Mullen was born September 1, 1928 in Fairfield, Texas to Clinton and Lucy Mullen. He graduated Fairfield High School where he lettered in baseball and football. Deward served his country in the Korean War, used his G.I. benefits to attend Jacksonville Baptist College and Stephen F. Austin University where he received his degree in history, prior to attending Seminary where he established his lifelong love of learning and sharing the Word of God.

On November 13, 1953, Deward married the love of his life Margie Nell Davis Mullen also of Fairfield and who proceeded him in death. For sixty years, their marriage was a true partnership pastoring churches throughout Texas in Nacogdoches, Crockett, Arlington, Picton, Huntsville and Frankston.

Deward was preceded in death by his parents Clint and Lucy Mullen, brothers C.L. and Bowie Mullen, sisters Ida Minchew and Ada Baker all of Fairfield and sister Francis (Cutie) Harper of Tyler. He is survived by his brother Perry Clois (Buddy) Mullen of Fairfield, and sisters Mary Lois Estes of Crandall and Nova La Flowers of Fairfield, his children Jerry and Margaret Mullen, Nina and Randy Burgett, Reba Bateman, Lola Hampton and Dana and Gigi Mullen as well as twenty grandchildren and twenty great grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren. In addition, Deward leaves behind a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews and an untold number of close friends upon whose hearts and lives he left an indelible mark.

Deward, known to most as simply D, was a fearless man of God first and foremost. Among his many accomplishments, beyond increasing the Kingdom of God upon the Earth, D was an avid hunter, fisherman, domino savant and the truest of friends. His generosity to and authentic love of all people, lives on through us as we go forward in the world celebrating the passion and strong sense of purpose, he shared with each of us.

To the Mullen Family:

We both go way back with the Mullen family, church , community, school. So many wonderful memories of each one.
I remember when Deward and Margie Nell were dating. What a perfect match, no doubt made in Heaven.

We thank God for letting us be raised with this family. We ask God to wrap His arms of love around each of you .
What a tribute for each one to aspire to be the person Deward Mullen was.! God Bless!

This man of God could quote more scriptures than any one I ever knew! He would say" let us read this togather" and he would look out at the congregation and quote the Word of God.
