Mullin editedPeacefully at University Hospital on Friday, December 14th, 2012, Linus Sylvester Mullin, of London, in his 87th year.  Linus was born February 16th, 1926 in Trout Brook, New Brunswick:  the eldest of 14.  He started school at the age of four and left school at the age of 13 to work in the woods to support his family through the Depression.  At 18, Linus volunteered to serve with the Canadian Armed Forces overseas in World War II, and continued to serve for the next two decades.  He then was employed with Eaton’s, in London, for the following 18 years.  After his beloved wife Beatrice passed away in 1987, Linus became the focal point for the family:  their two children Earl (Joyce) Mullin and Michael Mullin;  grandchildren Sarah (Todd) Troupe, Michael (Heather) Mullin, Kate Mullin and Jessica Mullin; and great grandchildren Michaela Troupe, Naomi Troupe, Madeline Mullin and Makenna Mullin.  Linus is survived by siblings Leo, Veronica, Anna, Francis, Gerald and Bernard, and was predeceased by siblings Mary, Connie, Cyril, Louis, Genevieve, Mark and Frederick.  Always a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather who put his family before himself, he will be missed by everyone.  Thank you to all the staff and residents of Horizon Place, where Linus enjoyed many friendships.  A memorial service will be conducted at the WESTVIEW FUNERAL CHAPEL, 709 Wonderland Road North, on Wednesday, December 19th, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. with visitation one hour prior.  Interment, St. Peter’s Cemetery.  Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Linus are asked to consider Muscular Dystrophy Canada – Myasthenia Gravis Research.  Online condolences may be made at
