He grew up in the Houston area during the “Great Depression”, therefore his family lived with other relatives and moved frequently. This did create a special bond among the cousins whom he dearly loved.

Roy talked his parents into consenting to let him serve his country at the age of 17 and he was proud to be a Navy man. After his discharge from the Navy he attended the University of Houston. He married the love of his life, Nancy Ruth Thompson on Oct. 6, 1950. He got a job at Phillips Petroleum in Sweeny where he and Nancy resided for 60 + years. He was an artist and writer; enjoyed the outdoors through gardening and flowers. He spent many hours and special occasions fishing and bestowed the love of it to his sons. He was also a member of the Coastalaires singing group . He wrote numerous stories and commentaries for the newspaper for all of us to enjoy. He was also a member of VFW Post 8551 in Sweeny and the First United Methodist Church.

Left to cherish his memory are his children, Michael Mullins & wife, Patricia, Tim Mullins & wife, Crystal, Kelly Mullins & wife, Jodina; sister, Jeanne Sue Mullins; 7 grandchildren; 9 great grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents; wife, Nancy Mullins; son, Baby Mullins; brother, Pat Mullins.
