Glen Raymond Mullins
Glen Raymond Mullins was born in Butte on December 6, 1956, to Leota and Andy Mullins and he died suddenly on July 25. All but a couple years of his life had been spent in Deer Lodge. He was the youngest of four children: Bob, Bev, and Berniece were his siblings. He attended school in Deer Lodge and graduated from PCHS in 1975. He could do many things well, but being a mechanic came naturally and at a young age. When he graduated from junior high, his brother gave him a car that didn’t run, so Glen rebuilt the engine and had it running smoothly before he was even legally able to drive.
Glen played saxophone in the high school band, and that is where he and his future wife Kathy Neubauer began their courtship. He later sold his sax to pay for her engagement ring. They were married for 40 years.
In 1994, Glen and Kathy had the biggest and best surprise of their lives when their daughter Briana was conceived. Even though he went the entire pregnancy with a stunned look, when he got to hold his daughter for the first time, he couldn’t stop smiling.
Glen was an intrical part of Powell County Search and Rescue for many years, acting as president and then coordinator up until health issues forced him to quit.
With great anticipation each year, he went hunting with his Aunt Ava and Uncle Don Davis, and he loved that Briana joined them when she was still quite young. Fishing was something else he was always willing to do with anyone, but he especially loved it when Kathy was with him. More recently he found a lost love for creating wooden bowls on a lathe, and he was very talented at it.
Glen was preceded in death by his parents, brother Bob, brother-in-law Rich Hover, and nephew Corey Driessen. He leaves behind his wife Kathy, daughter Briana, sisters Beverly Hover (Ogden, Iowa) and Berniece (Russell) Johnson (Gofnell, Ark.); in-laws Mickey and Wayne Neubauer, Terry (Tom), Shannon (Bob), Brad, and Guy, all of the Deer Lodge area. He also leaves many loved aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and his constant companion Mazie.
Donations made to Powell County Search and Rescue would be greatly appreciated.
Cremation has taken place, and a celebration of his life will be held at the Elks on Main Street in Deer Lodge on August 3, Thursday, from 1 to 4 p.m.
