Peter M. Mullen

Peter M. Mullen, 75, died Jan. 7, 2021 after a lengthy illness.

He was born July 5, 1945, to Francis P. and Doris M. Mullen of Jamestown. Pete was a 1963 graduate of Bemus Point High School. After graduation, he became a member of the U.S. Air Force, serving a four-year term. During that time of travel, he met his wife, Anna, whom he married on July 1, 1967.

They resided in Jamestown where they raised their children: Martin and Donna. Pete was a hard worker who excelled in his craft of remodeling construction. He made lifelong friendships through his work where he took pride in the detail and care of each job and customer. He was especially proud of the work he did at Saints Peter and Paul Church, where he was able to continue the work begun by his great-grandfather, Peter H. Mullen who was involved in the building of the church.

He was a servant to the community as a volunteer fire fighter. Pete was a life member of the Fluvanna Fire Department in which he held many leadership roles including assistant chief and commissioner.
