Dallas Mullins

Dallas Mullins, 65, passed away peacefully in his Burlington, Kentucky home surrounded by family on Wednesday, September 20, 2023 after a valiant fight with renal failure.

He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Nancy Mullins, his sons, Daniel (Erin), Benjamin (Randi), Matthew (Shelley), and Andrew (Beth), and his nine beloved grandchildren. He is also survived by his six sisters Judy Adams, Doris Bennett, Donna Sidebottom, Ronda Gilbert, Patricia Gideon, Brenda Butler, his two brothers, Marvin Mullins and Manuel Mullins and many loved nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his parents Harrison and Pauline Kilburn Mullins.

Dallas was born in Covington, Kentucky on October 28, 1957.

He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps while in high school and upon graduation from Newport High School in 1976, he began his military service that lasted 11 years with him reaching the rank of Sergeant. He was Honorably discharged from service in 1987.

Dallas and Nancy married on April 28, 1978 in Bremerton, Washington and they were stationed at several bases during his service. Interestingly, each of their four sons were born at the base of a different military branch. Their oldest child was born on a Navy base, their second on an Army base, third on an Air Force base, and their last on a Marine base.  

After leaving the Marine Corp in 1987, he began working as a driver for Consolidated Freight in Sacramento, California where he became a member of the Western Teamsters. After living in California for 9 years, he and his family moved back to Kentucky where they lived in Ludlow for several years before moving to Burlington where he'd live the rest of his life. He worked with Consolidated Freight until 2001. He then began working for Trauth Dairy which became Dean Foods where he was proud to be the milk man. He enjoyed delivering milk until he retired in 2018.

Dallas was a devout member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for 44 years holding many callings that included scout leader and nursery leader.

He also served 40 years in the Boy Scouts of America organization in various capacities including scout master and district commissioner. All four sons earned the distinguished rank of Eagle Scout with his support and they share many memories of scouting.  As an adult leader, he was elected into the Order of the Arrow where he achieved Brotherhood status.

Dallas took up an interest going to yard sales and reselling items that started while in California with Four Boys Trading and culminated in Hillbilly Treasures that he established in 2003. This endeavor became a family affair with him spending weekends going to auctions and yard sales to find him merchandise to resell on Ebay. A cherished memory will always be the many summers with his grandchildren participating in the famous Longest Yard Sale.

Another interest for him was genealogy. He enjoyed learning his family history and was proud to discover he was a Son of the Confederate AND a Son of the Union.  He always made a priority to attend family reunions whenever possible as his family was the most important thing to him.
