Mullin, Paul Joseph – Antigonish

It is with deeply broken hearts that Penni and Sara, share the sad news of the passing of their beloved husband and father, Paul on Jan 28, 2023, with them both at his side.

Born in Sydney Mines to the late Roland and Lorretta (Nugent) Mullin, he lived most of his life in Antigonish.

Paul loved the simple things in life and thought the best way to look at life was through the lens of a camera. Always too humble to take credit for his work, he was an excellent photographer, and anyone who saw his work was quick to praise it. He was an avid Ham radio operator, using his dad’s call sign (VE1VEC) and looked forward to being able to spend more time chatting with his friends around the world.

His greatest love was his family, firstly Penni and Sara and closely followed by the Mullin and LeBlanc families.

Paul was blessed with the sarcastic Mullin humour and brought every room to laughter. We looked at an item and saw it, Paul looked at it and saw an opportunity for a picture. The intellect of his father with the social graces of his mother made for great conversation with Paul. His brothers and sisters were always left wondering if his stories were true and kept them all guessing.   

Paul was loved dearly by Penni’s family and was an important part of the LeBlanc gang.  Everything from Sunday dinners to hour long chats with Ben to helping the siblings with whatever they needed are just some of their cherished memories of Paul.

Paul worked for 25 years at Construction Aggregate, Auld’s Cove, and the last 17 years with Wood Environmental and Infrastructure in Dartmouth. He took great pride in his job and had the respect of his coworkers for his excellent work ethic. It was said "You’ve got some big shoes to fill if you are filling in for Paul Mullin"

Left to mourn his passing are the love of his life Penni (LeBlanc) and their daughter Sara. To say she is his pride and joy would be an understatement

Paul also leaves behind his brothers and sisters, Brian, Lanark, Ont.; Jack (Jean), Bras D’Or; Deb (Rob White), Sydney Mines; Louise Beaton, Bras d’Or; Ron (Nicole), Sydney; in addition to Penni’s siblings, Rene (Marilyn), Shaunna, Michele, Brett, and Corey and several nieces and nephews.

Besides his parents, Paul was predeceased by his in-laws, Ben and Shirley, and his nephew, Roddie.

Arrangements have been entrusted to C.L. Curry’s Funeral Home in Antigonish.

In keeping with Paul’s wishes, cremation has taken place.  A celebration of Paul’s life will be held Friday from 2 to 5pm in the Frank McKenna Centre for Leadership, Schwartz School of Business at StFX.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or a charity of one’s choice.
