Funeral Services for Mr. Mullins to be held at 4 o'clock Today
Cotton county citizens are paying tribute today to the memory of one of Temple's most respected business men, Sam Mullins, proprietor of Mullins' Electric Shop, who died of heart failure at 7 o'clock Tuesday [July 11, 1933] evening after a day's illness.
Funeral services will be held at the First Baptist Church in Temple at 4 o'clock this afternoon (Thursday [13 Jul 1933]), in charge of the pastor, Rev. Chas. W Anderson. The prospective pallbearers are Messrs. W. A. Yeilding, Frank Henderson, Willis Rodolph, Chas. A. Harris, Sterling Price and J. G. Beasley. Mr. Mullins formerly lived in Walters and Hastings and many friends from those towns and other localities throughout the county are expected to be here to attend the funeral. Interment will be in the I.O.O.F. cemetery near Walters.
Mr. Mullins served as police judge in temple for several years during the era of prosperiety. In his judicial capacity and in private life he tried to be just and unbiased, his views at all times being tempered by kindly understanding and tolerance. His quiet, jovial disposition endeared him to all.
Mr. Mullins was born in Troy, Alabama, December 9, 1859, and died at Temple July 11, at the age of 73 years, 7 months and 2 days. He moved from Alabama to Kaufman County, Texas, when 17 years of age. On December 3, 1879, he was married to Miss Anna Harr. With his family he moved to Oklahoma in the early days and in 1921 entered business in Temple. He was converted when a young man and joined the M.E. church, remaining a faithful member.
The deceased is survived by his wife, one son, Claude Mullins, Fort Worth, Texas, and four daughters, Mrs. C.E. Young of Walters, Mrs. M V Daniel of Hastings, Mrs. Earl D Sale of Van Nuys, Calif., and Mrs. Joe Chitwood of Memphis, Texas; twenty-three grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.
